Thank you Lord for Friends

Those of you who read my prayer blog a couple of weeks ago know that I have had some things going on lately, financial, health, ministry......
As is ALWAYS the case, God hears.....and answers prayer. So this morning as I think about His many blessings, His many answers to prayer, I offer this one....
Dear Precious Heavenly Father,
Thank you for friends....dear, precious friends. Mark and I have friends who love You, and that love spills over in their loving, generous hearts, in their loving acts and words toward us.  I thank you Heavenly Father for giving them to us!
Thank you for our friends who reached out in my moment of health need and provided a way for me to have the specific medical needs met....she even went with me, and held my hand through the process.....thank you for her Lord.
Lord, you have given us  friends who know the financial struggle at this time, and what an outpouring of genuine love.....Mark being provided jobs doing work he is good at, in the homes of dear and precious friends.  Thank you!!
I see your faithfulness all around me.....I feel your presence in my life.....I feel hugged by your gifts of friendship and I thank you.
Thank you for loving me.....and for showing love to Mark and me through these dear instruments of Your mercy.
In Jesus Name....Amen

Well, based off of the blog I published this morning it is important to me to pray this prayer......
Thank You for dear friends, dear sisters in Christ who love You, and who love me. Thank You for friendship, and unconditional love. Thank You for people who put up with me, support me, pray for me, and truly care about me.  Thank You for giving us friends....the very human, skin-on parallel to Your love.  What would we do without You Lord?  And what would we do without those dear friends who reflect You so beautifully.  Thank You for giving us human hands to hold in addition to Your Holy spiritual Hands as we walk this faith journey.  I love You Lord, and I thank You for my sisters (and brothers) in the Lord.
