OH, SUCH A FRIEND...


FOR MORE PHOTOSTORY FRIDAY, visit the Hostesses Cecily and MamaGeek
(Dedicated to: Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Friends)
OH, SUCH A FRIEND
I have a friend
oh, such a friend
Who listens as I am struggling...
whether I'm loudly spouting or softly sobbing...
stopping her moment to be "inside my moment"
A moment seeing my fear while I'm trying to avoid it
Holding my hand, whispering His Word to fend off dark arrows
Love wins the battle, overflowing and trickling down each cheek
He promises His yoke, yes taking all concern, all surrendered
Souls, each one; souls, each won!
Oh, such a friend
Have I!

What a sweet post! My DD is going through a very tough time right now and I'm going to forward the link to this post to her.

7 loads of laundry, that makes me tired just thinking about it :-) I try to do one a day because my washer takes longer to do a load than mine in the U.S. did (typically one to one and a half hours) PLUS no dryer so it has to line dry. Not a big deal on sunny days but lately it's been really overcast and I've only been able to do one load a day. One day I really needed to do two, but it just wasn't possible because of the weather and my schedule.

I went to bed early because of a headache. Now I'm up early too :-) But I like this quiet, dark time in the morning. Muy tranquilo (you can probably translate that just by the way it sounds...very tranquil).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

"stopping her moment to be inside my moment..."

That is poetic and lovely and true; that is the description of good friends. Stopping moments in order to participate in others.

Happy Mother's Day to you.
