As I read our Sunday school lesson yesterday, I was reminded of John 10:10. And then again this morning as I reviewed a Bible study lesson:
"I have come that they may have life and have it to the full."
During our trip up north, I recognized over and over again just some of His abundance. Not only in the beauty of the northwoods and the delight of being with our children and grandchildren, but with wonderful girlfriends.
They inspire me. I know some of the pain and heartache and joy that they have experienced. And yet their beautiful faces and lives reflect Christ.
Ann and Mary managed to pull off Lora's birthday surprise. It was great fun (Lora's kind of a crybaby though...teehee - I suppose most people would cry if I popped in to surprise them - and not necessarily tears of joy.)!
Ann is the hostsess with the mostest. While she was at work Tuesday morning, I invited these good homeschooling friends over to chat. When Ann returned home, she asked them to stay for lunch. They did!
I'm so grateful that Pam and Barb took time out of their busy schedules to stop by and see me. We even got to go for a walk! Thanks girls - our walk and talk did me a world of good!
And Katie, how did I not get a picture of you? Thanks for coming over to see me!
These friends (and more!) are friends forever. I am so grateful for God's abundance!
~~~~And speaking of blessings, my lil sis and nephew arrive today. I'll be out playing the next few days and will resume blogging on Monday. Have a mahvelous weekend, everyone!
