Today would have been my mom's birthday had she been living. I had a pretty good day, but when I came home this afternoon and was resting, my heart yearned to call and tell my mom "Happy Birthday!" I turned on the computer and saw I had a message from a dear friend in the states. She wrote to tell me that she loved me and would be praying all day for me.
What an encouragement!!! If you live thousands of miles away from friends and family, then you will know what this small but very important gesture did to my heart!! I was reminded of the verse
Pro 15:23b " ... and a word spoken in due season, how good is it! "It was so good to hear that she was thinking of me today, and it made me feel loved and the miles did not seem to be very many.
From my heart,
