Friends are Angels

Hello Sweet Lovelies!

Today I'm sharing with you a gift I was given by my precious and beautiful friend Evana. It's not the gift alone that means so much but the thoughtfulness behind it. God has blessed me so much when He brought Evana, and I together as friends. And even though she has moved to the other side of Australia she still finds ways to spread sunshine into my life and into the lives of others.
This captivating angel is my Mothers Day gift...it's a long story and I won't go into it, but when things get forgotten Evana, remembers and blesses me. I love you my sweet sweet friend, you make life so much more beautiful, thank you!


A friend is a hand that is always holding yours, no matter how close or far apart you may be. A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.
~Richard Bach

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17

If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies.

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
~ C.S. Lewis

Aren't two sparrows sold for only a penny? But your Father knows when any one of them falls to the ground. Even the hairs on your head are counted. So don't be afraid! You are worth much more than many sparrows.
Matthew 10:29-31

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
~Maya Angelou

“A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”
~ Maya Angelou

There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.
~Richard Buckminster Fuller

See, I am sending an angel before you to protect you on your journey and lead you safely to the place I have prepared for you.
Exodus 23:20

If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.
~George MacDonald

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels.

Friends are angels who lift us up when we believe our wings have forgotten how to fly. ~Author Unknown

For it is written:'He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully;
they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
Luke 4:10-11

Oh Melly - God has definitely brought us together - 1/2 a world apart. Somehow I suspect a beautiful friendship is in bloom! In reading this lovely, lovely post and tribute to your dear friend, I see the similar heart space we share ... lovely pix, Scripture reference, and book quotes from respected, beloved authors. Yes, God has found a sister in this space to match yours.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful post!

I think it is a very lovely angel Melly :-) And yes, friends are treasures in life. My friends since highschool may live far from me and we don't get to talk that often anymore, still, when we do it's like we've never been apart! :-) I love them to pieces and I know they do too. :-)

We are blessed to have have our friends :-)
