yay! for a friend

Several ladies from the infamous Class of 1995 have thoroughly enjoyed renewing our friendships, and really growing them way beyond what they used to be way, WAY. Back. Then. And no, I won't go into why we are infamous {right, girls?}. Several live away, scattered about the South mainly {Erika, does deep Florida count as being in the South?}, with only two of us around here. This has happened thanks to the good Lord {friends are friends forever if the Lord's the Lord of them - can you hear it?} and facebook. That's right, God can work through facebook. And it shouldn't surprise you!

We keep up with the goings-on of the other families, are able to watch the little ones grow up in pictures, pray new little ones into life, help each other grieve over death, and pray. And pray. And pray for each other. What a neat thing we have, girls! I'm smitten with each one of you!

So, one of said friends, Tamara, just opened a brand new Etsy store. Yay! It's called CrazyMamaCreations. You need to go check it out for sure, but here's a little sneaky peeky:

I may just need one of these for my #1 t-ball player. {He really is #1 y'all!}

I have so enjoyed being able to witness Tamara's growing passion for God in recent years, and have loved reading of what she gleans from the Word, especially Lamentations and Isaiah. She has a way with words anyway, but add that to a heart seeking the Father. How lovely it's been. That's why I love the pendant below. It's scripture is from Isaiah 60:5 which says, "Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy." See, each pendant has a scripture reference handwritten on the back. And this radiant one has caught my eye - I want to be radiant because of Christ. So does Tamara, and the rest of the girls from way back when.

So, check out my girl at her blog and at her neat store. You'll be happy you did!

I am smitten with you too! What a great word. :) I miss you guys. And no, unfortunately, South Florida is NOT the South. No monograms here. ha ha

I have to agree with the word smitten. Love that! I never thought when I signed into Facebook that it was going to allow me to reconnect with such great friends. God was all over that!
