Jeannie & Claire: Rubies in Jewels of Friendship
Proverbs 31:10 “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” (King James)
God has blessed me with two friends who are such blessings. I have recently had a paradigm shift in the way my career and my household work together. The messages I was receiving through thought and prayer from God and the Holy Spirit (no, no Pentecostal stuff where the Spirit takes over my body or God speaks directly to me) were quite clear on what I needed to do, but I needed to talk with some people to make sure I was on the “correct path” in my thinking.
I didn’t tell everyone what was going on, but out of about 6 people that I thought would communicate with me and give me sound advice (not agree with me, pity me, nor be a “yes” person) two people helped me. I think if I would have been “distraught and wailing” that maybe all six would have helped, but maybe not. I have learned exactly whom I can trust and confide in. I needed God to show me this, and I am amazed at His guidance. One person whom I thought would give me at least 5 minutes hasn’t helped at all, and one person finally called me after I asked several times. It’s okay, they’re still friends, and I hope and pray that God blesses them continuously.
Now, Jeannie Smith and Claire Lane, the love and respect I have for you two has grown and blossomed in my heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your love, soothing words and advice. You both have such busy schedules, but you took time for me on several occasions, and I am, indeed, so grateful. You two are “RUBIES” in the jewels of friendship. I love and appreciate you both.
God bless you both and your families.
Glad to see you “back in the swing of things”. Doc and I were a bit concerned when we didn’t see you all at church and missed your blog. But, we certainly understand that ‘life takes over” and upsets our little apple carts! I believe that God is a huge part of that, too…..
So, have a great week end and we hope to see you all on Sunday. Stay well! love, Emmie
