Kindred Spirits!

(You know who you are, dear friend!)
She knows me so well, though we've never met!
But we love the same things ~ we are kindred spirits!
She has sent me treasured tokens of our friendship!
Thank you, dear one, I love them all!
A bag brimming with hand picked hairy acorns because we share a
love of the outdoors and I mentioned that I love acorns!
~
Some of her homemade Vanilla-Plum Syrup to share with
the Gentleman Farmer on Vanilla Ice cream or as a drink in Ginger-ale;
because she and I both like to cook and preserve.
~
A precious vintage Thanksgiving postcard because we both enjoy
things from the past. (You notice, there are two girls walking together ~ sharing the 'burden' of the heavily laden wagon. She has prayed for me.)
"Can two walk together, except they be agreed?"
Amos 3:3
~
No, we have never met, but in the sweet card she writes that should I ever
come out her way, that her home is welcome to us.
I am looking forward, someday, to meeting you, dear friend!
No introduction will be needed!

Genuine and rare,
The one that we call friendship
Has worth beyond compare.

Be thankful if He sends,
Not diamonds, pearls or riches,
But the love of real true friends.

It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.

Raeann,
Your beautiful thoughts on friendship reminded me of a little saying that I have framed on my wall,

I think of you so often,
And I love to think its true,
That every time I think of you,
You're thinking of me too!
I've always said that friendship is one of God's best gifts, and we sometimes take it so for granted. I LOVE YOUR BLOGS Jamie H.

Tis true that often we find kindred spirits where we least expect to find them. What a blessing. Thank you for sharing with us.
