One of the greatest blessings Jesus gives us in this life is friends. Friends to share the journey, to encourage, and to bear one another's burdens. We are truly rich in friends.
Today we had an end of the school year day with some of our amazing friends. Many of our children have known each other since the day they were born. We started this homeschool journey together with 3 children each (We each had a five year old, three year old, and a one year old at the time)..Today we have 22 children between the 3 of us. Our children range from sixteen years down to two. They love each other faithfully and fiercely. It is such a blessing to see how God is working in each of their lives. I thank God that He has blessed my children in this way.
I am so blessed to have such dear friends. Friends who love my children and who love me warts and all. Friends who have stood in the gap for me and friends who have prayed for me. Friends who never cease to amaze me with their love.
As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27: 17
