Heading out for some refreshment!!

Over the years, God has blessed me with amazing friends.
In each church and city he has taken us to, He has provided me with great friendships.
I have been so blessed!!

However, I have one group of friends that have been with me for 20+ years.  I met them in the first church my husband and I pastor'd in.  All of them were military wives and therefore, over the years, we have been spread out all over the US and the world.

This has not stopped or hindered our friendships.
In fact, we have met together for a girl's weekend the same week in Feb for about 17 years.  These ladies are amazing, godly women.  They all love the Lord with all their hearts.  They encourage me in my faith and marriage, hold me up in prayer, cry with me when I am hurting and know more about me than anyone else other than my husband.  

I love these ladies so much!
If you remember back in November, 5 of these 8 friends came to surprise me for my 50th birthday!!! 
 

These are friends that have my back...spiritually and physically.

Well, it's that time again!!!
Our weekend to stay in our PJs, eat, talk till wee hours, watch movies, eat and hang out.


We will also spend time praying for each other....the best!

So, my blog will be a bit quiet over the next few days.
But I am looking forward to relaxing, laughing and refreshing!
It seems this weekend always comes at a good time!!

See you next week!
