A God Sent Friend

I have been praying for years for God to send me a friend that I can really trust.

I have not had good luck in this area of my life. Well, luck didn't have anything to do with it. I had no boundaries and needy people were attracted to me. I believe it was the door mat I had written on my face.

I am so happy God has answered my prayer. I feel so blessed to call mamaduck my friend. I can trust her and talk to her about anything. She is so real! She encourages me and rebukes me. Both are so important from a close friend.

I was teaching DOK today and we were talking about building a relationship with God. The more time you spend with Him the more you get to know Him. This made me realize that is what is happening with me and mamduck. God has given us some very special days together the past few weeks and we have learn so much about each other.

It is so nice to have a balanced friendship. I love to do thing for her and she does so much for me. Even though we are at very difference stages of life we still relate so well. I am totally in love with her children. I would give them all the world if I could. But, I will give them all the love they are willing to take instead. Dennis loves them too! They are the most precious family.

I am so proud of the mother mamaduck is. She does it all on her own and her children are just wonderful. She has such faith. Her hardships have made her even stronger.

I pray God will bring you a friend like He has brought me. Thank you Jesus! You knew just what I needed in a friend, she was so worth the wait.
