God is good. My heart is happy and I am thankful. For friends. Wonderful friends who care, and life each other up when we fall.
I remember spending most of my high school years and early 20's feeling oh so lonely. In fact if you were to go back to the beginning entries of this blog you would find the heart cries of a very lonely girl. Not that I didn't have a few friends but they were few and far between. And I myself was to insecure to call on them.
In recent years, since our move back to NY God has brought so many wonderful, wonderful friends into my life. They are such a blessing and a treasure. I have learned the joy of giving and receiving and stepping out of my little box of comfort to encourage someone else who might need it. I am learning to listen when the Lord speaks to my heart. Even if it means picking up that dreaded phone.
I am thankful that my God is a god of Hope, and Joy and Peace. That He helps us, guides us and helps us rise above.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
1 Peter 5:10 niv
