I also have my friends from church. I know I can call them at any time and they'll pray with me. I see them at least 2 or 3 times a week and we never seem to run out of things to talk about.
Finally, I have my internet friends. Now, to someone who doesn't blog or use an email group of some kind, this may be hard to understand. All I know is that God has simply provided another way to bring friends into my life. I belong to an email group of women who are the greatest. I've "known" some of them for 5 years or more and have even met one or two. I consider them some of my closest friends although we've never met. I know about their families and have prayed for them and had them pray for me. We share each other's joys and sorrows and are there for each other. Isn't that what friendship is all about?
I'm also beginning to make some wonderful friends here as well. I so appreciate the kind words of those who have stopped by to make me feel welcome in this new endeavor of mine. Thank you for making me feel so at home.
Friendship... what a blessing. Make sure to thank God for His wonderful gift!
