You know the way it works – I’ll write for five minutes on the prompt of FRIEND and then I’ll like it up with Kate’s blog Heading Home.
These are just some thoughts that come to mind when I think of my closes friends. And you know, nowadays, friends aren’t always someone you have met in person. I married my best friend on this earth. He is my constant, my strength, my rock, my support, my encourager. I hope I am the same for him.
I have several good friends that I attend church with. They help me keep my chin up and my feet moving forward. They also homeschool, or have done so, and they know what I may be struggling with and working through. In addition to the homeschool world, these friends know what I need in my spiritual life and they pray for me and check on me if I miss church or Bible study.
I also have several friend scattered around the world that I have never met. But they bless my life in ways I cannot even express. One chats with me several times a week and encourages me through comments and checking in and, I know, prayer. Others have sent me scriptures, commented on forums I am part of, comment on my blog, or a million other ways in which I know they are supporting me.
God places lots of people in our lives and not a one of them take the place of any other. Each is so special. I very much appreciate this aspect of God’s love and care for me.

Isn’t social media wonderful? i live in such a small town and tend to not fit in very well and all of my closest friends and confidants tend to live what feels like a world away, yet they are there every single day! I love it! There support is priceless and I know that God has placed us in one anothers lives given how many people are on the internet!! Such a blessing!!
