A dear friend of mine passed away this weekend. I've been blessed to know her for over 25 years, and most of that time she's battled cancer.
Women in the trenches of motherhood, doing a million small things each day to bless those around them. Women fighting evil, abuse and trauma.
Behind-the-scenes sisters making their homes places of sanctuary and peace.
Those of every age in every circumstance who kneel down humbly and then rise to serve. Again and again and again.
Covenant keeping, good-news-of-the-gospel testifying, charity-filled comforting women. So many faithful, good women!
I feel so blessed!
Sometimes the world seems to be chaotic, explosive, evil, falling apart. But I know that there is an army of Christlike people fighting quietly behind the scenes. Preparing for His return.
Others who believe quite differently, also making the world a better place. Thank you, my dear friends for the lives you're living. You are my heroes.
*I started to add real photos and realized that there were too many. For the same reason, I can't add names either! What a great problem to have.
