They held his hands...

It is important to surround ourselves with strong like minded saints in the Lord who will help hold us up during the long and heavy days and nights of this thing called L ~ I ~ F ~ E.

As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands the Amalekites were winning. When Moses' hands grew tired they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up- one on the other-so that his hands remained steady till sunset." Exodus 17: 11-12

Our days here have been heavy and long, yet we continue to be held up by the strength of the Lord and those wearing His name.

I continue to thank Him:

for difficult times
friends who struggle
sleepless evenings
a quiet place to study Gods word
a heart that seeks Him
flowers blooming in the garden
warm towels out of the dryer
blackberries picked by the children in my Sunday school class
promise of blackberry tarts for Sunday morning
sweet fellowship with our church family
bible studies that go on and on
His word new every day
teaching woman and children Gods word
sharing the gospel with neighbors who want to know more
dinner on the water with my best friend who happens to be my husband
good times
running into old friends at the store
the sound of laughter
Holy spirit
