Are You Thankful?

It's awesome having friends like you who don’t mind when I ramble, or get carried away telling them what's on my heart. Friends like you who are there whenever I need to talk or just need a word of encouragement. Friends like you who truly care about me, who are always interested in what I have to say. Friends like you who are godly, and that encourage me in the Lord. Friends like you who live their life in such a way that it sets a godly example for me. Friends like you who stand up for what's right, no matter the cost. Friends like you who love, when all others hate. Friends like you who stay, when all others leave. Friends like you who laugh when I laugh. Friends like you who cry when I cry. Friends like you who show me where I've gone wrong, just because they love me. Friends like you who are different, so different that I’m amazed at there awesome love for God. Friends like you who are the kind of friend God wants them to be. Friends-I thank God for them.

Hope sent this to me and I thought I would share this! It was so encouraging and I can say that she is definitely this kind of friend to me. I thank God for the great friends He gives me! Not everyone has this kind of friend so when you realize that you have such an amazing friend, you should thank them and thank God for them. No one is perfect but we are all striving for perfection. I love when you see friends that work together and strive to be more like Christ; keeping each other accountable. Hope is one of the best friends I could ever ask for and I pray that if you have the kind of friend Hope is to me, then you will be thankful for them.

  4. Hey Michaella I was wondering if you would like me to make you a header for your blog? If you don't that is like so fine, I was just wondering!

  5. Yeah! I know that story teller is supposed to make one but if u would like to make one as well, I could always change the design after a while. but it's totally up to you! if you did, then u wouldn't have to hurry or be in a rush at all! thanks for asking!
