Maybe it was a prayer you sent up for me when I was feeling life's storms.  Maybe it was the way you gave me a hug when I needed one so bad.  Or maybe it was just being here to listen when I was needing to talk.


Maybe it was the way you told me not to give up and then encouraged me to just trust God to handle it all.  Maybe it was just knowing you were close by if I needed a friend and that I could depend on you.  Then again, maybe it was you being
here when everyone else seemed to be turning away. 



Maybe it was the kind words you spoke to me when someone else had said something hurtful.  Maybe it was the way you smiled and were able to put that smile in my heart and share with me a little of your own happiness.  Maybe it was the wonderful way that you made me feel like someone special. 



Maybe it was the way that you always pointed me towards Jesus and taught me not to look at the things happening around me but to just keep my eyes focused totally on Him.  And then maybe.... just maybe... it was just for you being you. 



There may be too many things to be able to list them all here... but whatever part you played in making my day

Just a little happier,

Just a little easier,

Just a little more hopeful ...






"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails."

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
This site is dedicated to all those that God has placed in my life who have been here to share His love and kindness
when times have seemed so hard and I am so thankful that the Lord allowed our paths to meet.  The love of Jesus flows out of you and has touched my life and heart in so many ways.  You have been here for me when I did need someone to share His loving kindness so much.  That means more to me than you will ever know.  I know that so much goes unsaid and I am at a loss of words  to really be able to tell you how much you really mean to me.  I pray that you know in your heart of hearts, though, what has not been spoken.  I love you and I thank God so very much for the gift of your love and friendship.

Love in Christ,
Sherry
Lord, grant me Kingdom eyes to seek Your face and a servant's heart to do Your will

"not I, but Christ"
Galatians 2:20
There are times in our lives, and I've seen quite a few,
when the road up ahead seems too hard to get through.
But when you've got friends beside you,
though the Lord seems far away,
He is there within their lives for you, and that's why I have to say.

(short intro)
Your prayers have made
a difference in my life;
they've given me a peace
in the darkest of nights.
When it seemed I'd need a miracle
to relieve my heavy load,
I felt my burdens lift,
gently raised by the hand of God.

And my fears, my doubts, my sorrows
disappear as morning dew,
for your prayers, your love, your witness
are a gift from the Lord and you.

Your love has made
a difference in my heart;
it's like a healing balm
poured on each broken part.
Now forgiven and forgiving,
free from all that had me bound,
no root of bitterness
can spring up to despoil God's ground

And my fears, my doubts, my sorrows
disappear as morning dew,
for your prayers, your love, your witness
are a gift from the Lord and you.

Sometimes when God seems so distant,
the world much too cruel to bear,
I look for friends I can turn to: you are there.

Your witness has made
a difference in my walk,
filled with sincerity,
not just vain, empty talk.
And my brothers and my sisters
in the Lord you are all my friends,
God's special gift to me,
keeping me faithful to the end.

And my fears, my doubts, my sorrows
disappear as morning dew,
for your prayers, your love, your witness
are a gift from the Lord, through you.
Yes, your prayers, your love, your witness
are a gift from the Lord, through you.

This song is the whole reason this page came to be.  When I heard the music and read the words, I just could not wait to get it on a page for my friends who have been here for me so much over the last few years.  They are so precious and this song just speaks so much of what is really in my heart. I pray it blesses others as much as it did me.
This is the love of my life . . . Jesus.

Father, Your ways are above our ways and Your thoughts above our thoughts.  You are always knowing what it is that we have need of before we even ask.  You are well aware of the need that we have for human companionship and for the ways that others can be such a big part of our lives.  We are not creatures designed to be alone. The fellowship and bonds of love found in Christian relationships are just not able to be compared with other than that with which we find in You and with that nothing compares.  Our sisters and brothers in Christ live the life of Christ before us and by their expressions of His love, their prayers, and that witness, we are made stronger in our own walk of faith.  I thank you for these friends and family that you have placed in my life that are so very dear to me.  Only a God so great as You would do that.  I pray that You will bless them and give to them so much more back than I have been able to give to them.  Bless them in ways that only You can do, Lord.  Keep a hedge of protection around them and their loved ones, Father and shower them with all the blessings of heaven.  Grant them peace and harmony in their homes and a love for You in their hearts that will only continue to grow as the years go on.  I praise Your holy name and give you all the honor and glory, Father.  In JESUS name we pray.  Amen.

Hi Friend . . . the Joy of the Lord to YOU !

You know, sometimes you can have people all around you and yet you can still be so very lonely.  You can have people tell you that they love you, and yet you feel unloved.  You can share with others what burdens your soul so much and they can't understand or feel how deep the hurt really is.  And you can have friends who call themselves friends, who really don't know you at all.  And then there are those whom God will place in your lives that you have only known but a short time and the Spirit of God makes you feel as if you've known them forever.  There is a bond of love that is just indescribable and somehow all those feelings of loneliness and not being loved begin to be erased because you feel God's love pouring out of them.  What a blessing it is when God places a special friend in your life and causes this to happen.  It is a rare occasion and not one that happens but a very few times in a lifetime.  Somehow, the Lord uses this person to really make you understand the depth of love that He has for each one of us and it simply is so hard to express how much they have touched your life. 

I thank God for those He has placed in my life.  Most will come and go having met a need that was there for a particular time in my life.. or perhaps just the other way around.  But I pray that for the handful of those He has caused to be such a special part of my heart, He will allow us always to remain close and stay friends forever.  None of it was coincidence, but by divine appointment, and I am so very thankful for your love and friendship.

To all those who visit this page... God's blessings upon you.  May the Lord place those in your path who will be a source of encouragement and hope to you also.  And when He does, make sure you try to let them know just how much He has touched you through them.

May the God of all mercy and hope be with you this day and always.

Love in Christ,
Sherry
