When God Uses Others to Bless You

We had a visit today from some very dear people who are members of the church we used to attend. Several years back my husband became a Preacher and we now serve a small, rural community. Our home church sends us support and reaches out to help us. 

This couple now heads a ministry ministering to Missionaries. It was wonderful spending time with them sharing our love for God, our faith and our heart.

They passed along well wishes from those we knew from our home church and came bearing gifts. I was overwhelmed with their thoughtfulness. It means so much to me that they wholly support my husband in his ministry – and it touched me that they would extend themselves to give us thoughtful gifts.

What a blessing we have here on earth – the fellowship of fellow believers. I have been overjoyed to find so many Kindred Spirits through blogging – it seems
The blessings keep flowing and flowing and flowing and they never run out!

I am sharing this post with our dear

  3. How wonderful! Spending time with dear friends gives us so much energy. It´s nice to be remembered…and to remember and share memories of the past.
    Today it really feels like spring is here. A lot of wet snow… what do you call it? Tö, we say here in Sweden. It will freeze tonight, as usual, but for every day there are less snow…
