I Love You!

 Anna, may you read this post and know how much I love you! Words cannot express how much I love you!!! You have been my best friend as long as I can remember and you have been there for me when I have gone through hard times and now I hope that I can be an encouragement to you as you face this trial in your life. 
I pray that the Lord uses this time in your life to touch many lives with the love of God. May He give you the peace and joy that passes all understanding even through the most painful moments. So that those around you know, that there IS a Mighty God who is in control, and that you place your trust in His perfect plan. He knows how this all plays out in the big plan so we can and must trust that He will guide each and every step of the way!

"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest."  ~Joshua 1:9

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want."  ~Psalm 23:1
No matter where we are in life God is with us from beginning to end. We need not fear the unknown for it is known to the Almighty!


Always having fun together!

Best friends forever!

The end of my first stay over at the Ronald McDonald House.

    You two are so beautiful & what a great blessing it is to see you two loving on eachother!

  7. I love you both!! Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos of you together! You both are such a blessing! Your testimony of sisterly love and friendship makes me wish I could "go back in time" and do things much differently with my siblings. Moments wasted can never be regained. Enjoy and make the most of the special relationship you have bonded. Many hugs and much love to both of you, Mrs. Potvin

  10. Naomi,

    I agree with my wife it is wonderful to see the love you have for your sister Anna and thanks for sharing the photos. It is also true that both of you have been a great encouragement over the years we've known you. You have both turned out to very Godly young ladies.

    God bless you,
    Mr. Potvin
    Pr. 3:5-6

  11. Naomi,
    Oh course this post made me cry. Your love for each other is always a joy to watch or as in this case to read about. It has been my pleasure to have a friendship with you both over the last 10 years and see your love for each other and the Lord continue to grow.Steadfast unmovable always abounding in the work of the Lord.Sometimes I think from little girls to wonderful women where did the time go. I am looking forward to many more years of both of your friendship, laughter, love and serving the Lord together.
    Love you Naomi and Anna
    Mrs. Harper

  12. Naomi,
    You have been specifically in my prayers just as the rest of your family has. Stay strong and trusting in God! Your beautiful spirit throughout this trial is a strong testimony of God's love in your life!
    I miss seeing the more frequent posts like the vocabulary words and quotes, though I am sure you have your hands full currently. I just wanted to give you this note of encouragement and remind you that you have people praying for you as well! :)

    Your friend and brother in Christ,


  13. Thank you Gill!
    I am hoping to get back into a "normal" schedule so that I can be posting my usuals more often.

  14. Naomi, you are in my prayers. I cannot imagine how hard it is for you to see your sister going through this and to be away from her. My younger sister and I are very close, and I greatly treasure our relationship. I am praying specifically for you, as I too, am the eldest in my family, and although I have only the tiniest idea of what you are going through, I do know of your heavy responsibilities. I pray that God will give you peace and rest in Him, and that He will give you strength and courage for each and every day. May you be aware of His presence with you always.

  15. Thank you! His peace is unsearchable, and His joy is without measure!

  16. Naomi hard this song 105.3 made me think of Anna and your family

    "Need You Now (How Many Times)" by PLUMB

    Well, everybody's got a story to tell And everybody's got a wound to be healed I want to believe there's beauty here 'Cause oh, I get so tired of holding on I can't let go, I can't move on I want to believe there's meaning here

    How many times have you heard me cry out "God please take this"? How many times have you given me strength to Just keep breathing? Oh I need you God, I need you now.

    Standing on a road I didn't plan Wondering how I got to where I am I'm trying to hear that still small voice I'm trying to hear above the noise

    How many times have you heard me cry out "God please take this"? How many times have you given me strength to Just keep breathing? Oh I need you God, I need you now.

    Though I walk, Though I walk through the shadows And I, I am so afraid Please stay, please stay right beside me With every single step I take

    How many times have you heard me cry out? And how many times have you given me strength?

    How many times have you heard me cry out "God please take this"? How many times have you given me strength to Just keep breathing? Oh I need you God, I need you now.

    I need you now Oh I need you God, I need you now. I need you now I need you now

    Your friend and brother in Christ,
