I have a wonderful beautiful friend named Amanda. We met in 1996 when we lived down the hall from each other in the dorm at Bible School. She is married to a wonderful man (also from Bible School) and they have three adorable children.
We lost touch for several years but recently "found" each other again through the gift of the internet. I love the internet.
If you read my post yesterday you all know that I have been in a rather less-than-perfect state of mind the past couple days. So about half an hour ago I was minding my own business cooking my kids scrambled eggs for lunch when my doorbell rings.
I THOUGHT it was another book to review for the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance. BUT when I got to the door there was a lovely lady NOT dressed in the traditional delivery-woman apparel. She introduced herself as my dear friend Amanda's mother in law and hands me a beautifully decorated care package.
I stood in shock and asked her "what are you doing in my town????" No one ever just stops by our town. We live rather far off the beaten path! Apparently she has relatives here and when my dear Amanda heard that she would be in my town she sent me this beautiful care package.
Seems to me that God Himself is sending me a message saying "You aren't alone, I love you and you have friends who love you too. So stop whining."
Thank-you my sweet Amanda for the beautiful gift! I love you!
