The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

4 Friends

I enjoy blogging for many reasons. Among them being able to reconnect with friends from high-school. I cannot grasp the fact that it has been 15 years this May.

Since I began blogging I have reconnected with 4 amazing people. These girls write about their true feelings, true emotions, and how God has blessed them and continues to bless them. Right now they each have a lot on their shoulders.

Erika recently blogged about the disappointment of a lost pregnancy and the pure joy of finding out that they are now expecting! I know that God is watching and waiting until He can let this little angel come and live with them.
****update: I found out this afternoon that Erika lost the baby. Please pray for her and her husband as they deal with this loss. Words fail me, but pray that God knows how to heal her heart.

Kristin also recently found out that she and her husband are expecting. They trusted God to lead them, and they followed. I pray that God continues to bless this entire family with a new angel soon.

Tamara wrote about her mother’s health problems. She is such a strong support for her mother and I know that God is holding her mother in His hands. Please pray for Tamara and her mother to cast their worries on God during this stressful time, and that He will heal her mother quickly.

Carrie has been struggling with a sick child. There aren’t too many things worse than dealing with a sick child who is not quite old enough to understand what is going on. Sickness of any kind is stressful. I pray that the road gets easier for Carrie and that her son will continue to improve.

4 friends, 4 different lives,
1 God to look to.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Girls, I want you all to know I am praying and thinking of each of you daily.

Thanks so much, Rebecca. Isn't it amazing how 15 years later we can all reconnect and share so much more than when we were younger. God placed all of you back in my life for a great reason. Thanks for the prayers!
