Friends (cuz I miss her!) - WFW

Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by Penny at Pennyraine. Be sure to stop by her blog for more visual inspiration from scripture.

Friends (both local and virtual) are such a HUGE part of my life. As many of you know, I met several of my virtual ones at the FaithWriters conference last month. This is a picture of me and my incredible, wonderful, amazing soul sister/twin separated at birth/brain-sharer Patty "Peejers" Wysong (she's the Patterings gal) at the conference. She is absolutely, positively THE best - and she's been working at her local fair the past week or so, and we haven't chatted in years (LOL a slight exaggeration)! Miss ya, sweets!

Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel. Proverbs 27:9 NIV
