Friendship is an area God has really stretched and grown me in. I am seeing more then ever how valuable a good friend is. One thing I feel passionate about doing is celebrating the many women in my life that have blessed me throughout my days. I have the best friends in the whole world. I mean we all feel that way, right? I am surrounded by amazing women both near and far. I can’t even tell you how much I adore them. Each woman you see pictured below is precious to me. Some of these women are new, and some I’ve known for years and years, but what they all have in common is that they are beautiful treasures and I am privileged to have them in my life.

A letter to my friends

Ladies,

I genuinely thank God for you often. I look at your faces here and tears come to my eyes as I consider how richly I’ve been blessed by each of you. I am so thankful for your love, support and encouragement through the years. I wish there were a million hours in the day so that I could spend more time with each you. I think of many of you often, if not daily. Could be we haven’t spoken in years, or that we’ve only just met. But, I hope you know how valuable you are to me and to our Father. I pray that the Lord bless each of you and your families. I ask the Lord for favor on your lives, and that you grow more and more like Jesus as you pursue Him. I love you, sisters.

Love,

Shelly

( If by chance you didn’t make the grid, it’s probably that I can’t find a picture of us. Believe me, I searched through lots of images hunting down lots of faces. So, don’t take it to heart if you didn’t make the wall. I’ll be adding to it often. )
