Day 3 - Sisters-in-Love

I first heard someone use that term to describe their Sister-in-Law whom they were very close with. I immediately borrowed it. Sisters-in-Love to me are those women who share this Christian experience, who understand that as women we are naturally inclined to encourage others. These are the type of Sistas (Yes, Sistas!) who would call me all throughout the day encouraging me - saying they too were encouraged - asking how they could assist me on my journey for these 40 days. Telling me they couldn't leave a post (I modified the setting, anyone can comment, now) -- asking me whether I needed them to just read this blog or comment on it - you know, Sistas love instructions ;-).  The kind of women who would respond to my first post within minutes telling me they were proud of me. The kind of women who pray with me and for me. The kind of women who will tell me the truth - even when it hurts. The kind of women who would text me 'ya up?' to make sure I make the 6AM prayer call. The kind of women you see once a year during restaurant week - who honor that commitment to fellowship over a good meal. The kind of women who had a crazy idea to take cupcakes and Paul Dean chicken soup to a women's bible study and turn it out. The kind of women who would pass out this devotional, The One Year Book of Inspiration for Girlfriends by Ellen Miller like candy because it encouraged them. The kind of women who understand without a doubt - that we are our Sistas Keeper!

So on Day 3 of 40 Days of Gratefulness, I'm grateful for my Sistas-in-Love. #40daysofgratefulness #beblessed
