Think on These Things #21 ~ Striving Together

Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel
Philippians 1:27
I have been blessed to become friends with this sweetest family!

Nika and Zhenya and their three precious children live in a distant and unfamiliar land to me yet I count it a joy to read about their love for the Lord and their work through Nika's blog

I received a surprise package from Nika containing a delicious chocolate bar, a lovely card and this handsome trivet with a scene from her beautiful Russia. What a treasure!
Best of all, it will remind me of their work and to lift this dear family up in prayer as they serve the Lord.
 Has God impressed on your heart something special this week?
Was there a Scripture verse, a song, a quote, a poem or an encouraging word that came your way and caused you to pause.
I'd love for you to share.

They look like a beautiful family, Lorraine.

I had a hard time linking up my post this week as your Mr Linky required a backlink t this exact post URL and not your general blog URL --will that be the procedure each week? If so I will wait t add your meme to my blog post until the day you add the Linky so I won't have this trouble again. Thanks!

I had a post all ready to link up with you but I couldn't for the life of me get my photo to upload. Google kept saying I ran out of room on my blog. So crazy. I worked all afternoon on trying to figure out the problem and have it solved for now! I have the post saved and will link up next Sunday. So frustrating!!! :)
