About: Two Women I Love!

I have a mother.
I love her very much!

I have a second mother.
I love her very much as well!

They're best friends. They love each other very much too! :)
This post I'm dedicating to both of these dear women.

My mom: Julia
My 2nd mom: Laura

They are many things.

{1} Dear friends...
{2} I'm convinced they're sisters that were separated and have been reunited at long last!
{3} They act alike
{4} Both sing beautifully
{5} Their faces resemble one another
{6} Godly encouragements t
o me
{7} Godly encouragements to each other

Every time I observe their interaction, I pray that the Lord will give me the grace to have a friend so dear. Well, He has, I suppose (anyway... beside the point).
I can't believe it, but these two dear women have known each other just over a year.

All of these verses describe their relationship, I believe:

Proverbs 12:26 ~ The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads astray.

Proverbs 17:17 ~ A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 18:34 ~ A man who has a friend must himself be friendly, but there is a friend w
ho sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 27:6 ~ Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

Proverbs 27:9 ~ Ointment and perfume delight the heart, and the sweetness of a man's friend gives delight by hearty counsel.

Proverbs 27: 17 ~ As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

Ecclesiastes 4:9 ~ {The value of a friend} Two are better than one, because they have a
good reward for their labor.

Mama and Mamalala... I love you both so much and am constantly blessed by your relationship. I pray the Lord will bless you with years and years of friendship and encouragement!

Blessings, dear ladies!

Two sweet women ~ dearly loved by many ~

Walking together on the journey of friendship ~

Like a garden, as stated so well below, is friendship...

"A friendship does not grow up spontaneously. It must have a good soil in which to take root, good seed from which to start, and care and cultivation, in order to become its best. The good soil is sincerity and truth coupled with kindness and affection. The good seed is love and appreciation. And it must be watched closely that no weeds of jealousy or envy creep in, and the soil must be constantly stirred by kind acts, words of appreciation and affection, and mutual admiration. There dare be no selfish interests nor untrusting suspicions in true friendship. The smallest bit of mistrust will blight it like frost. Friendship is tender, but it is beautiful." (M. Hale, Beautiful Girlhood)

Awwww!! Reminds me of my mom and her best friend...they've known each other for much longer than a year, but that sentiment of 'I hope I can find a friend like that someday' still remains... ^-^

The Lord's hand has been
clearly evident
from the beginning.
He wove a swift, deep stitch.

A blessing post.
You wrapped it up so beautifully
(as is your way with things)
and presented it
as a timely gift.

Thank you for sharing
what your eyes see
with clarity.
What my heart knows
with joy.

And I love you.
