Thank You, Forever Friends




















As evening rolls into morning, I reflect on the treasure I have before me. I stand amazed as I ponder the friends I have made via blogging. God has used each of you more than you will ever know to greatly impact my life for HIS greater good.

From darkness to light, GOD has abundantly blessed me with love, prayers and encouragement. I cherish each of you. I pray GOD will bless you beyond that which you could ask or imagine.

Forever Friends,

Andrea

Proverbs 27:19 said...

Ya know, isn't it neat how we can call a person who we met thru blogging a friend even though we haven't physically met. I think that it's really awesome, the connections we build with one another.

One evening recently, I just poured out to God my prayers for my blog friends. I handn't realized until then the depth of what He is doing and the love available as we help each other.

Anita C. McCants said...

Andrea,
Your message was so endearing.
After reading your prayer, I
paused for a moment to pray
that same prayer for you.

Congratulations and blessings
to your daughter on getting
married.

God bless you,
Anita

Andrea,

Isn't it amazing the wonderful friends you meet all over the blogging world. I would have never guessed just how supportive people can be or what I have taken away from this experience. I only wish I had started sooner.

Hi Andrea,
How cool that your husband has the same candy dish as mine! Does he have any other pieces? That sunset is spectacular! Thank you for the blessing. I want to thank you for all your visits too. I agree, blogging brings us into contact with so many wonderful and caring friends. May God's love, joy, and peace be an overflowing portion in your life this day!

So often the internet is used for evil, and yet the bloggy friends that I have made are a true blessing! It is good to know that the internet can also be used to further the Kingdom, isn't it?

Imagine if there's a big "Blog Corner" up in heaven so we can all go meet up and hang out! ha ha ha

christy rose said...

I completely agree. I have more fulfillment in my life today because of the blog friends that I have made.

Mimmy said...

Thank you for the sweet post. Blogging has introduced me to people from all over the world. When I am talking to my blog friends, I don't think about my pain nearly as much. It's better than pain pills.

Thank you for sharing.

God Bless,
Mimmy
