Baby Shower Time!



Today was a fun day celebrating my friend, Jamie, for her baby girl that will be here before we know it. Her name is Emma and we all can't wait to meet her.

I love this photo of all of us because each year for the past couple of years we have taken one in this exact spot. We have 3 now.

These are some of my best girlfriends and I love them to bits.
Natalie, Jamie, Sarah & Lizzy.

I've met them all at church at one point or another and God has knitted our hearts together. We all have different jobs, come from different places, have different numbers of kids, choose to send them to public school, private school, or homeschool, are just starting families or have been raising kids for years. And one of us even has a daughter who is graduating high school and another that is about to be born. One thing we have in common that is the glue that binds us is our love of Jesus. Thank you Lord for sending women into my life to encourage me, hug me, lift me up in prayer, and just love me right where I am at.

Be blessed today!

That's an awesome photo! And it sounds like a perfect bunch of friends! I'm sure that makes leaving England OH SO MUCH easier.

I LOVE this post! There are 4 of us instead of 5 but so similar to your groupies. I love them with my whole heart and I know that we are a covenant group designed by God.

Thanks so much for your kind words about my girl. And thanks for stopping by. So nice to meet you. Please come back anytime. I'll put the coffee on~
