Friends rock

The Lord has blessed me with an amazing network of friends. I tell you what, sometimes I am just amazed. Tonight, for example, I had a difficult decision to make and an email to write. But between my sister and a friend thousands of miles away, I got the email written and the matter resolved.

I just don't know what I'd do without y'all.

Y'all are like Hur the handholder. Remember that Bible story? As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites prevailed, but when he tired and his hands dropped, the battle went to the enemy. So Aaron and Hur stood on either side and held up Moses' hands and the Israelites won the day.

Not that I'm Moses, or anything. But like Moses, I have a role to play and responsibilities I must fulfill and I have, by God's mercy, a group of women in my life that I know I can call on to uphold my failing hands when times get tough or I need advice or counsel. I can also count on them to hold me accountable in my roles as wife and mother. I even have the confidence to complain to them, knowing that, when appropriate, they'll call me out and set me straight :)

I wish for all of you friends like I have!

Thank you so much, it means the world to me.

Isn't it so comforting?! I did not always have this in my life, but I do now and it's a great blessing.

What wonderful imagery...the idea of our friends holding up our proverbial hand. And it's so true. The problem I often have is simply forgetting to ask for help when I need it. But most good friends are truly HAPPY to serve when needed. So glad you were able to get it resolved!
