Soaps and salves were also present. One of her children even stuck in a chew toy for our dog. There was everything but the kitchen sink!!!
The crown jewel of the dinner was an awesome Pecan Pie which happens to be my favorite pie in the world. According to my husband, it was the best Pecan Pie he had ever eaten. I would have to agree.
Friends are something that Michael and I hold near and dear to our heart. They aren't to be taken lightly. These are the people who are willing to drive 45 minutes one way just to deliver a Christmas basket of goodies as a welcome home gift or the ones who are willing to listen when your heart is heavy. Cheri is one of those people, and I am honored to call her friend. Even when we did not know her very well, she was always eager to teach us about farm life. Her knowledge has been a well spring here on our farm.
Please take the time today to lift her and her family up to the Lord in prayer. This day is one that will be hard for her. I know that she would be much encouraged to know that the Body of Christ is lifting her up to the Father. For myself, I want to be one that is willing to hold up her arms when she is weak...just like Aaron did for Moses. Isn't that what friends are for?
grace and peace,
