  1. Michelle you are the most spiritual person I know! You are truely and angel of God! I just found your blog today and find it refreshing and uplifting!

Through everything I have been going through and you not not knowing the depth of it, God sent you reach out for me and pray for me! This I thank you for and am blessed to have a friend such as you!!
    Love you girl!

  2. Janet,

    Thank you for your sweet words! It is my prayer that the Lord speak to others through whatever I write. He's truly the inspiration behind it all! He knows all those things that no one else could ever possibly know. I just listen to what He says to me.

    I do pray for you and hold you close! Never forget that God loves you so much! That might sound like a cliche' but it is actually very true!

    Keep looking to Him, Janet! You can trust Him. I'm so glad you stopped by! And I'm so glad we're friends! Love you too, girl!!
