After this week, I have come to the conclusion that some of the most precious friends are the ones who can help us in our time of need and pray for us...(I learned that a few weeks back too when all of you prayed for Ralph--and I'll never forget it.)
My two friends, Patti and Donna whom I met while blogging prayed for me all week--and it helped more than they ever knew...Let me explain what happened...I had sent my art to an art gallery--and it got lost! ($1,000 worth of art.) I was in a total state of panic and my 2 friends prayed for me and wrote every day asking what the latest news was...I just found today that it all finally arrived safe and sound--When I sent the boxes on Monday, I was 56....By Friday, I think I was 86! lol I'm sure I aged that much, for sure!
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that if you are ever in a bind, turn to friends who turn to God with you--it makes all the difference in the world...It can change your life and your future!!!
In fact, it was so awful that I was afraid to worry anyone else with it (I didn't even tell my mom.)
Well, that's my story and I wanted to share it with you...and one more thing--Patti said the most amazing thing in one of her letters. She said that the Lord always finishes what He starts...Wow, that was powerful--and something I'll never forget.
I am probably the most grateful person on the planet right now--grateful it got there safe, grateful that I didn't look like a flake, and grateful for 2 friends who got me through this "slippery slope."
Now, there may be those of you who are thinking, "Wow, why didn't Cindy tell me?" Honestly, because I was so nervous about it. It was beyond comprehension that such a thing could happen. It went clear to a different part of the state! Well, thankfully, it's in the right hands now...
As you go about your week, I hope that you will learn to turn to God for everything...I know in this circumstance I had no other choice...and it was a valuable life lesson...I wish you all peace, love, and packages that arrive at their destinations!
