Welcome To My Green Pasture....

It is a place of quiet rest that I have found when I am writing. I hope that someone will find my musings helpful in some way.
Psalm 23:2 "He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restoreth my soul."

Treasures of Friendship

Sometimes I guess I have underestimated the value of friends in my life. I am sort of an independent spirit and don't like to rely on anyone for anything...and maybe that is not always so good! This last year has been very interesting....I have made more friends this year than I think in my whole life! I have restored some friendships that I thought were forever lost and maybe the most important valuable lesson I have learned is how to be a better friend!
Throughout this last year, I have made some new friends who already have become special to me. I  love each of them dearly and we have laughed, cried, and prayed together over many things.
I guess somehow I am special to them as well for each of them at some time or other has given me some gift! I have never in my life had so many gifts given to me as this last year!! Someone asked me the other day how I rated and why I should be so favored as to always be getting these gifts? Well, I am not for sure....but I have turned my gifts from these treasured friends into prayer reminders. You see, each of these friends belong to my prayer group I go to each Tuesday. Each one has a special need. These gifts from my friends are scattered throughout my home and as I wander from room to room I am reminded of each friend and I silently utter a prayer.
I look at these ducks and I think of the man who is  in the wheelchair

A lady who is in chronic pain gave me this dish

There's the oil lamp that my dear friend gave me. She is losing her sight.I am reminded to pray for her as I sit on my sofa.   There have been many numerous other gifts throughout the year...I cannot name them all and I did not take pictures of them all; but I have come to treasure the friends God places in my life and have learned that if you pray for people instead of cutting them down ...your friendships blossom into a special treasure!
