Thankful for Relationships

**I'm so thankful for my eternal relationship with Jesus, first and foremost. He's my very best friend and the only One who knows every crook and cranny of my heart. He loves me and accepts me even with full knowledge of my failures and foibles.

**My husband has been the most wonderful partner God could have ever chose for me. I'm so thankful for him, for his friendship, for his love, for his understanding spirit, and for his heart to encourage me.

**I'm thankful for the friends I've made since we moved to this area. Like my friend who spent the day with preparing for VBS even though she doesn't go to my church! Or my friends who watched my kids so I could go to a writer's conference, a job interview, and a field trip with one daughter.

**I'm thankful for good relationships with my children and I pray that we will always be close.

I'm glad God gave us relationships - He knew that we needed each other.

Thanks Iris for reminding us to be thankful today!

Bless you Heather and your special relationships! How true your words and what a treasure we have in our relationships. Enjoyed your devotion on The Simplicity of Christ at Internet...I'm not at all
a Martha. Again your words let us know what Jesus wants from us instead of trying to impress others
He simply wants US to introduce HIM

Thank you for both beautiful posts!
Come over to my place on FRIDAY it's a special day...but no pomp and circumstance...Be blessed & enjoy those special relationships!

Relationships are so key--I guess that's why the illustration of the body having many parts but working together is so on target. I'm glad you've found those kind of friendships!

Relationships are more important than any degree we can earn or any honor bestowed on us. In relationships, we model the love of God because of the relationship we have with Him in Christ.

Thanks for this great reminder, Heather! Have a blessed weekend!
