I thank you Lord for the gift of wonderful friends for without them, life would be so lonely. Although there have been times of great despair in recent months, God has so blessed us with a wonderful cocoon of love from our parish family and our other friends. And for laughter--thanks to our friends who can so easily make us laugh and forget any sadness, you are all dear to us.
We pray for all of those who have been unkind, and those who have become estranged from us and always hold open the door and hope for reconciliation. Until that time, thanks be to God for allow us to survive grave health issues, financial ruin and the fracture of our family. We know that the enemy, the darkness cannot win.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places, EPH 6:12.
Only the Light of Christ can win and can melt the hardened hearts. I thank you for transforming my life and thank you dear Jesus for your faithfulness.
