Thank You, Mary Moss


















Today, I would like to thank Mary Moss. Many of you may not know Mary and indeed you should. She is a wonderful lady, a prayer warrior, encourager, and friend. I met Mary about a year and half ago.

We became close friends, quickly. We are most definitely kindred spirits. Mary is a published author, speaker, and blogger. Shortly after our friendship began, she encouraged me to blog. I had NO desire, but GOD had a different plan and HE sent Mary to encourage (push and shove) this stubborn, willful being. She had her work cut out, but she did NOT sway from GOD's call and she has NEVER given up on me.

All of the wonderful gadgets on my blog are placed there by Mary. She even surprised me with blog makeovers by Edie at Rich Gifts. On Arise 2 Write, Mary "stole" a photo I had taken and had it designed as my background! What a friend! Mary puts true meaning to the verse:

"A friend loves at all times." Proverbs 17:17


Mary has 3 blogs. I hope each of you will take the time to visit her blogs and get to know her. I also encourage you to order her devotional book, "Woman At The Well." You will not be disappointed.

Mary's blogs:

Divinely Designed
Crayon Chronicles
Godly Graffiti

Thankful for GOD's blessings of friendship,

Andrea

I Want to thank you for your regular visits to my place and for your comments, they mean a LOT to me! And though I accepted your award with glee (and thanks, of course!) today, I'll post it tomorrow!

What a great friend Mary sounds like. You are so blessed to have such a great friend, but I am sure you already know that. Really good friends are hard to come by. I look forward to getting to know her.

I'm hopping over to Mary's blog from here. It has been a great year for me, despite the fact that it was a year of grieving...but you are among the many blog friends who have encouraged me, with your regular visits, and loving comments. WHenever I thank God for specific blog friends, you are always among the names I mention.

You are blessed!
