Hangin' Out With Friends Today!

"Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us." 1 John 4:11-12 (NIV)

Today I am hangin' out with two really dear friends!

Are there people God has placed in your life that are like colorful, sparkly presents all dolled up with fancy bows and your name inscribed in calligraphy on the nametag that seem to be dropped right straight from the portals of heaven?? Well, I'm visiting with two of my favorite God gifts today...unfortunately not face to face, but where we often the bloggy world!

Please head on over to Susan Stilwell's blog and join us there. Susan is a blogger extraordinaire, accomplished speaker, diligent student of the Word, and even teaches yearly on tours to the Holy Land!! She is an expert at all things computer and has an incredible blog for bloggers. It is rumored that she makes the best banana bread, but I've never tasted it. We've shared some really awesome pie, though!

Then mosey on over to Inspire a Fire where Vonda Skelton is graciously hosting me. You can get better acquainted with this lovely lady at her website. While there, peruse (and purchase) her books. She is a wonderful writer and mentor to multitudes of writers! Vonda is also a renowned speaker and instructor of speakers. Her talents seem to know no bounds. Keep your eyes peeled for that face, as she's in the movies these days!

I know that you will want to visit these ladies often and be blessed by their love for the Lord and the way they use their gifts to honor Him and bring glory to His great Name!

Enjoy that precious time with friends! Isn't it cool how with those special friends no matter how often you don't get to see them in person, they remain close in your heart and you can pick up where you left off. Hope you are enjoying this next phase of your life. LOVE YOU!

Love you too, and keep you in my prayers! Big hugs!
