About My Friends
My dear sweet friend over at Heart 4 My Home (http://heart4myhome.blogspot.com/) has awarded me with another blogging award - A Friendship Award! This is a wonderful blessing to my heart. A few questions come with this award, so here goes ...
1. Do you have the same friends since childhood?
No. Not one. There was a time in my life when this answer would have made me very sad. However, as they say, hindsight is 20/20. I am now able to look back and see where God has brought me from. He placed my feet upon a different path. He has and is leading me closer to Him.
2. What do you value most about your friends?
First and foremost I value their prayers. I have come to understand Roman 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose." When my friends pray for me and my family, I know that I have advocates petitioning the throne the God with me. I will be able to see the blessing of God's hand directing all things in my life.
3. Are your friends your sounding board?
I hate to admit this, but yes, sometimes they are. For sometime now I have been working on leaving a prayer request just that, a prayer request. It is my desire to continue growing in the Lord and learning to lean on Him. The Bible is a life manual. The answers to all our questions and quandaries are right there in God's Word. If I don't like the answers He gives or I find myself with a different opinion than He, that is a cue that my heart has been lead astray and I am in need of repenting.
4. What is your favorite activity to share with your friends?
Fun get-togethers that include cooking, eating, and fellowship. Sometimes we get together and go camping. When we do this, I love our Sunday morning worship time. Worshiping the Lord in His beautiful creation is really special to me.
As always with blogging awards, it is customary to pass the award on to others who are special.
