I'm thankful for my friend and her gifts

Over the summer I met this crazy person... In someways we are a lot alike... And in some ways we are completely different (she really does some crazy things).

God knew EXACTLY what He was doing when He introduced us through a mutual friend.
We actually pretty much have a standing date on Fridays but we love/trust each other enough to say "hey it's a tough week on the pocketbook how about we stay at home" or if we are tired we tell the other we need to stay home. And it's ok.
I'm pretty sure I almost got us killed one night in Detroit because I took us in a terrible neighborhood (thankfully she didn't hold it against me- good thing "the Detroit app" has turbo boost and I got us out of there).

We are both really organized, we like the details of things... People come up with crazy ideas and Sheila and I have the gifts to make it happen :)

I'm thankful for my dear friend Sheila aka my partner in crime (but we don't do anything illegal) for so many reasons! She's an encourager, she's a dreamer, she's a great listener, she puts all she has into what she does! I love the things that are different than me because she makes me a better friend, person, and follower of Jesus!
She my great friend who most people have no idea how incredible that she is because she's in the background and often goes unnoticed! But she's there... Loving and following Jesus! She's my friend! And I love her!!

1 Cor 12:22 In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary.

These "matchbooks" were made by her in order to help make everyone happy (and keep kids from burning down the church and me from having a heart attack and stroke)
