A Moment of Gratitude...

True Friendships are forever!!!

It’s amazing that I still have most of the same friends now that I had growing up as a kid. We don’t have to talk every day or see each other all the time to know that we are friends til the end. I find that true friendship doesn’t need to be validated. It’s a given. The people who matter most will be there even when you don’t think that they are. Even when you try to push them away, they don’t push you away and continue to pray that you let go and let God fight your battles. I thank God for my “Godly Girlfriends” as I call them. We laugh together, cry together, pray together and have fun times together. We build each other up instead of tear each other down. We speak life, because we all know that there is power in the tongue. We bring positive attitudes, outlooks, and energy to each other.  Even when one of us doesn’t feel like being positive, we don’t talk badly about it, we pray for strength to overcome the situation. We encourage each other.

Although the enemy tried to ruin a few friendships along our journey, we managed to always get through it. It doesn’t take much when the foundation was built to sustain any obstacle, and that foundation is God. No, we don’t pretend to know it all or have it all together because we are still human, so at times we tend to get in our flesh. But that’s okay because we are entitled to make mistakes. In the end we get through it and become better from it. Some people go through life alone; unable to find one person less known many who will be there for them, so I am extremely blessed. Even though my circle is just that, they know that they have been a part of it since elementary school. I just want to say to them, and they all know who they are that, “I love you girls with all that is within me and thank God for giving us to each other. I look forward to having you in my life for many years to come and also when we cross that river and enter into the kingdom of Heaven! You inspire me, encourage me and keep me “ME”.
