And this is love...

Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples" John 13:35

You know you are loved when...
  • A friend makes you homemade ginger bread to help combat nausea!
  • A friend sends you a box of Godiva chocolates!
  • A friend surprises you (almost) with pots of fall flowers on your front porch!
  • A friend makes you homemade biscotti to eat when nothing else will stay down!
  • A friend gives you new pajama pants and slippers!
  • A friend sends you beautiful photos of nature every week to remind you of God's beauty!
  • A friend brings you a bag of crossword puzzles and magazines to keep busy during long days of chemotherapy infusion.
  • A friend comes all the way from Mexico to see you.
  • A friend listens and lets you cry.
  • A friend spends a day fasting and praying for your healing.
  • Friends gather around, lay their hands on you, and pray for your healing.
  • A friend emails just to remind you that 6 months isn't that long and you can do it!
  • Your husband still calls you his "smokin' hot wife"!
"But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and his love becomes complete in us—perfect love!" 1 John 4:11

  2. Friends are such blessings from God. We can live without a lot of 'things', but we cannot live without our friends...especially friends that are part of our Christian family! You are learning so much through this journey that you are on with God, and we are blessed to be taught these lessons through you! And God knew just the right man to bless you with as your husband! Hugs and prayers, Jeanne
