OUR SOJOURN ON EARTH -
Today, I have such a feeling of love for all of my dear friends. I still see fairly often girls that I went to school with from 8th grade on. I have many friends that I have made through the years that I still communicate with often. I have a few friends that I would love to have more contact with. I have several friends that I am very close to and I consider them my sisters since I didn't have any sisters.These friends are those you can tell anything to and they just love you and never judge you; and are there for you when you are having a bad day. Of course, all of my friends I feel I met and knew in the pre-existence.
I love this quote my Elder Neal Maxwell-
"We sometimes overlook: the intertwining of our lives. I acknowledge the Lord's hand in these intersections. ...One of of the reasons we love each other in the kingdom is that our friendships are not friendships of initiation at all but are, instead, friendships of resumption!
Each of us has circles of friendships and within those lie the portion of the human family whom God has given us to love, to serve, and to learn from.You and I may call these intersectings 'coincidence'. This word is understandable for mortals to use, but coincidence is not an appropriate word to describe the workings of an omniscient God. He does not do things by 'coincidence' but instead by 'divine design.'
Friends are so important in our lives. I also love those dear friends that I have made through blogging. Thanks for lifting my soul on a regular basis. I have deep gratitude for the part you all have played in my life.
A favorite Quote from Sister Marjorie Pay Hinckley -
"We are all in this together. We need each other, Oh, how we need each other. Those of us who are old need you who are young. And, hopefully, you who are young need some of us who are old. It is a sociological fact that women need women. We need deep and satisfying and loyal friendships with each other. These friendships are a necessary source of sustenance. We need to renew our faith every day. We need to lock arms and help build the kingdom so that it will roll forth and fill the whole earth."
LOVE AND BLESSINGS PLUS HUGS TO YOU ALL! LeAnn
