Friends

God always amazes me how much he blesses me with friends. When I was a teenager I didn't have a lot of friends....I think I had one girl friend through high school. I have always had a hard time relating to girls/women. For the longest time I didn't want to get involved with women because I thought they were catty, back stabbing, manipulative and competitive. I always related more to boys/men so much better...there were no games.

I can't name a specific time God started to work in my life about this but has been within the last 5 years or so. He has given me new eyes to see women as princess's in God's kingdom. I can say that I love women now...that I value who they are...that I can see the hurt many of them feel. I can honestly say now that I have such great female friends that it continues to blow my mind. I love my friends so very much....I can't imagine my life without my friends. They bring me so much joy, strength and love!!

I love how my friends know when I don't feel well and give me a word of encouragement or pray for me. How I can not have it all together and they just love me right where I am at. How I can open my heart about my troubles and know that someone is going to come along side me and pray. How they can text me just at the right time with some word that lifts my spirit. How they meet me at the gym to hold me accoutable to exercise. How they help me not just look at feelings, but to look at facts. How they can send a card that comes at a day when I am feeling blue.

Yes, my friends are very valuable to me and I can happily say that I have women in my life that are not catty, back stabbing, manipulative or competitive. They are loving, compassionate, positive, inspirational, genuine, honest and reliable. Thanks to all my friends....you know who you are!!!

Thank you God for sending each one of them into my life.
