A Birthday Tribute


gr8friend


Happy Birthday to my Dearest Friend, Cindy!


I just love how God works...it seems that when you least expect it...He pours out a blessing into your life!!! I met my friend Cindy on Rate My Space. It seemed that from the very beginning we had a special connection...we share so many interests...the love for our families, the love of God, and even a love for interior design. Although our friendship has developed via the internet, I can honestly say that Cindy is one of my dearest and closest friends!!! I call her "Sis" because we really are sisters...soul sisters! Cindy has helped me through some pretty dark times...she has a great gift of listening...I have poured my heart out to her on more than just one occasion and she has always so gently held it in her hand!!! I just know that I could share anything about me with my Sis...she never judges me...but always has such words of wisdom...such compassion and healing!!! I know that she prays for me faithfully...her greatest gift to me!!! My Sis is the greatest...she's so beautiful and vibrant...she's so intelligent and wise...she's so loving and compassionate...and she is one of the most talented women that I know!!! I just know that she's a blessing to everyone who meets her...my Sis is the best!!!

Some people may call it "Serendipity" (...good fortune, luck, an aptitude for making a desirable discovery by accident) that Cindy and I met...but I know differently!!! It was no accident that we met...it was in God's divine plan!!! You ask how I know that to be so...well, it's just one of those things that you know...that you know...that you know!!!

So on this day...September 9th...I thank God for creating and giving this world such a precious gift...my Sis, Cindy!!! Happy Birthday, Sis!!! My birthday gift and prayer to you is...that the Lord return to you...all the blessings, joy, and love that you have given so freely to me and to so many others!!! May this be the best birthday yet....and may you have many, many more!!! I love you, Cindy!!!



Your Sis....Chari

My goodness Chari I am moved to tears, such kind, gracious, generous words, I am so not worthy! Even my husband shed a tear when I read him your beautiful words. God has so blessed us both with our meeting. I had no idea that such strong deep friendships were waiting for me on the other side of a computer screen. Thank-you dear, I am nearly beyond words to espress my feelings. Love ya Sis, Cindy

Chari, This is so amazing to me . Not that we all have developed friendships via RMS but How the ones of like spirit have connected. I too, have been in awe of the journey God is taking me on. It has opened up so many doors of opportunity to share with others how his mighty hand is working in my life. I can see by what you wrote about Cindy , you see his hand in your life also. I think when we keep him in our focus we always will see his hand because he is always there just waiting for us to open our eyes to him. I am so glad our spirits connected with his hand in control of it all. Have a wonderful blessed day. I know I am going to. love ya, Kathysue[RMS]

chari, what a beautiful tribute to Cindy. I will have to agree with all the accolades, she is a wonderful giving person and deserves to be told and you told her so very well. I too agree about meeting you via rms. I can't believe the journey that God has taken me on. I truely believe when we are open to his guidance and are still enough to listen he takes us to such wonderful places in the heart. This has been a year of painful growth for me but I can say the most rewarding. I am so thankful for you and your friendship. Who knows if we don't meet hear we know someday we will meet. love ya Kathysue
