The Gift of Restoration

Today was such a great day! In emailing back and forth between my long lost friend that found me this week on Facebook, we planned to have a phone chat today, and anyone that really knows me, knows I LOVE to talk....a LOT!
Our phone "chat" turned into a marathon call, which I anticipated it in being, and we just picked up right where we left off the last time we spoke, which was in 1980.

I am so grateful to our Lord for the gift of restoration and the gift of such a true friend, as I have in my dear, precious Angie!

That's TWICE in the last two years that the Lord has done this very same thing for me.....on my 48th birthday, I had an email from my sister Angie, who I had not seen or heard from since February 1972. She too, had found me via the internet - I'd been doing a lot of genealogy on my daddy's family and would always post things with my maiden and married name, and that's where she had seen how to contact me through email.

Two Angies that were vital parts of my life and I thought I'd lost forever - one a sister, and one who was as close as a sister, are now back in my life once again, and it's one of the greatest gifts that my precious Jesus has bestowed upon me.

Thank you Lord, for your neverending love and promises of hope!
