Sisters
« on: August 15, 2006, 06:26:18 PM »

 This is for all of my dear sisters here on the forum,  I am so very gratefull for you all and don't know what I would do without you.
May God bless you all in everything you do.


 Sisters

all4love,
  Thank you for posting that!  It is wonderful to have so many sisters (and brothers  ;)) here to talk with.  We are so lucky and blessed to have this place to come together to share each others burdens and sorrows and triumphs and joys!

Much love to all in Christ

beautiful, I can relate to this. when my husband was killed in March of this year, my sisters; related and spiritually related, really came through in my time of grief. Thank you for reminding me how awesome GOD is when he uses others to help us along in our journey.

I am so happy that everyone enjoyed this as much as I have.  I do want to say that I think this could also be made the same for brothers as well.  I love my sisters here as much as my brothers and deeply appreciate both.  I am so grateful that God has brought you all to my life.  I would be so very lonely without you all.

May God Bless you all

Hi Bobby,

You seem to be a lot more organized than me, I would have had to insert "Beer Run" somewhere in there!!!

Seriously though, men do operate differently when it comes to relationships. I've had male friends that I've known for 30 years, and they never have opened up about ANYTHING, yet we remain good friends. They express it in different ways...like showing up to help out with something, or without asking, checking up on your family for you while out of town. Unfortunately I don't live near any of them anymore. I've been blessed with a lot of sisters in my life too, I couldn't live without them.

My daughter told me to put this in.

GIRLS RULE    :)

I agree,
Chuck

I once heard that brothers read the headlines

Sisters read the fine print.
