Blessings

A dear friend of mine has just gone through a very trying time. It is so hard to feel so helpless when something happens to a friend you have known for years. We have shared some of our most private moments in our life. We have been there for each other when we really needed it. So, when I was feeling nothing but despair for her, I found this little message in the "Choose a Blessing" bowl in the cafeteria at work...


There is no situation so chaotic that God cannot from that situation create something surpassingly good. He did it at the creation. He did it at the cross. He is doing it today. H.C.G.Mouley

She is slowly coming along. Slowly. We have added another link to our friendship. Making it stronger and stronger.

There is nothing in this world like a good friend. I hope things are better for her soon and I am sure she knows you are there if she needs you. The blessing bowl is a wonderful idea. Thanks for your comments on my blog.

Friends like you are why I have instilled the idea in my daughters that their women friends are one of life's greatest treasures, and it is so important to cultivate those friendships. The blessing bowl is such a wonderful idea. It also shows how perspective can change on a dime. Thanks!

Great post and I will have to copy that quote in my book. I'm filling blank books with quotes that inspire me, lift me up, make me laugh, make me think...it could come off a billboard, a movie, a song, a church sermon, anywhere.

I've grown closer to friends by sharing some of our private moments and brainstorming/praying for solutions.
