The Joy of Friends

A dear GLOW friend surprised everyone with this sweet plaque at our meeting last Wednesday! 
I love surprises!

Thank you Arlene!!

Recipe for Friendship

2 heaping cups of patience
1 heart full of love
2 handfuls of generosity
1 headful of understanding
A dash of humor
Sprinkle generously with kindness
and plenty of faith

Mix well. Spread over a period of a lifetime. 
Serve to everyone you meet.

True friendships are lasting because true love is eternal.  A friendship in which heart speaks to heart is a gift from God and no gift that comes from God is temporary or occasional.
Henri J.M. Nouwen

Love one another deeply, from the heart.
1 Peter 1:22

Mary Lou Carney writes...

My friend Lurlene was standing in the doorway and waving when I turned down her street.  By the time I'd pulled into her driveway, she was out the door and holding open her arms for a hug.  "How was the trip?"  "Long," I replied.

And it had been ~ I had driven from my home in northern Indiana all the way to Chattanooga, Tennessee, for a visit. 

We went inside, and I plopped my suitcase down in the guest bedroom.  A big bouquet of orange tiger lilies ~ my favorite ~ was on the nightstand.

"Want something to eat?" Lurlene asked.  "I've got fresh salsa and some crunchy cereal I know you'll like.  And oh, I found great nectarines.  I know you like them better than peaches.  And I picked up that movie you told me you've been wanting to see."

"You shouldn't have gone to so much trouble just for me." I protested.  Lurlene stopped and stared at me.  "Trouble? I was preparing for the arrival of my friend.
That's not trouble ~ that's joy!"

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.

Angel Blessings

May you be blessed with ...
Someone to care for, plenty to do,
something to hope for and good health, too,
achievements to be proud of, and someone to love,
whilst protected and guided by your Angels above.

An angel formed of purest love
Is sent to you from God above.
Ever watchful and always true,
An angel meant for only you.
To guide through darkness to the light,
To defend your day and guard your night.
May Angelic peace  come shining through
And hurry the blessings of God to you.

Angels minister to us personally. 
Many accounts in Scripture confirm that we are the subjects of their individual concern.
Billy Graham

Until Next Time

For it is written,  He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee.
Luke 4:10
