Never in my life did I ever think that I would have true friends. The friends I used to have would steal from one another right in front of the other faces. You could never depend on any of them except to do something wrong. They would never back you up in times of crisis usually abandoning ship when things went South. Since I have been walking with God he has placed the most amazing people in my journey with him. Friends that I have shared my horrible past with to help strengthen my walk. We have shared tears and stories of joy and Hope to encourage each other. When I would get scared about regular things in life these friends were always there to comfort me and guide me. I would pray to God asking for his wisdom and leadership through these tough times and he would use these friends to speak for him. I can’t tell you how many times I prayed leaving my worries fears and doubts at his feet and a friend would call me that day with an answer to my prayer and I hadn’t even told them what was going on. I believe the greatest gift that God has bestowed on me is giving me these really true friends. These friends have shown me true love. It’s almost as if they are our true to life angels. There’s no way I could have made this godly walk without them in our lives and I just wanted to put this out there for all of them to read. Ginger and I both love all of you guys so very much. God bless all of you!
