This is Odie reporting in from Ohio. It is great to be home for a few days and enjoy my little home. I am trying to get settled in some more. The majority of that will take place in a couple weeks when we have a longer stay in Ohio.
We have a big adventure that we are about to embark upon tomorrow. I can not wait to share it with you later. I will just say my bags are packed, I am excited and the fun is about to start.
Last month during two revivals in Oklahoma we were able to see Bro. Rickey, Sis. Sharon and Javonia Searcy. It was so great to see our dear friends again!
Our crazy schedule prevents us from seeing them often. Our families have been connected for years and they have been a huge blessing to us. I love them so much and I am so thankful for their friendship!
The star of their family is Javonia. She brightens the room with her presence. I wrote about Javonia several years ago. You can see that post by clicking here.
Javonia is a friend I received because our families were friends. It is difficult to remember my life without our Javonia. She has been a blessing to me so many times.
Javonia has been my encourager many times. She will tell me when she thinks I am doing good. Also Javonia is not afraid to tell me when she thinks I might be doing something wrong! I cherish our moments we get to be together.
Life has given Javonia a different set of challenges than mine, but that has not stopped her from living life to the fullest. Javonia is a dreamer and always planning her future. She is always wanting to reach a life milestone before I reach them. 😀
Javonia will always get older before me. She can pave the way for me. I am 8 years behind her. This year she hit the big 40 mark and she is proud of her age! Javonia has taught me to take life as it comes. Her example reminds me to embrace life, enjoy the ride and smile.
Javonia Christine Searcy, thank you for being my friend! I love you more than I can put into words. God definitely put you in my path to encourage me. Girl, keep on smiling and encouraging others. You are awesome and I am blessed to call you my friend!
I hope reading about my precious friend brought you a smile. Do you have a friend that encourages without knowing they are doing it? Thank you for visiting with me today. I hope you have a great weekend!
