Hello, my loyal friends! As I am writing to you, I have sold my home that I was in for almost six years in Land O Lakes, Florida. When I first moved in I had so many great expectations of new beginnings with my family. My oldest son Michael, my youngest son David, Sparky my dog along with my husband and me I. Little did I know that when I would sell the house I would be living alone.
Although it was a transition from all of the events that happened to me, one thing is for sure, it was God-placed people in my life. The people that he placed have marked my heart in a deep way when I needed them the most. They have given me emotional support, heartfelt comfort, and wise advice. I have been able to grow in various areas in my life. They have enriched my life considerably and I am so thankful because of it. Today I am a wiser, stronger, happier person because of God and the people I have called my true friends.
What to look for in relationships that are genuine and connect on a deeper level? There are four categories of people: one group that subtract, another group divide, third group add, and the last group I love the most is multiply. You have found a great relationship when there is transparency, vulnerability, honesty, mutual respect, trust, and above all genuine love. Hold on to those relationships and nurture it. Just like a plant that it needs to be watered and cared for so are the valuable relationships in your life.
“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” Proverbs 27:17
Peace, Love, and Joy!
