I am PRAISING GOD!!!! after writing that post about my sad week - I took that post and copied and pasted it and wrote an e-mail to my friends, personalizing it a bit. We had sent a few e-mails back and forth prior to that, talking about the situation, but in more of a informational form rather than resolving the issue.

Thursday evening, my friend's husband sent me an e-mail using 1 Corinthians 13, Love
1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

With this e-mail of Scripture came on apology. I wasn't sure how to take it. But was Praising GOD because it was a beginning. Yesterday, my friend e-mailed me and wanted to get together to talk. So we got together in the afternoon and prayed together and she offered her apologies for her part and I offered my apologies for my part. We discussed what could be done in the future to resolve any conflicts that come up. Then we discussed our husband's getting together because they were good friends as well and they needed to talk about the situation too. Tonight, they will be coming over and the men (along with us) will talk and pray together as a group.

GOD is good and HE hears us when we cry out to HIM. I am confident this issue will be completely resolved and we will be closer than before.

Psalm 91:11-12 says, "For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. 12 In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

And one last Scripture for you is

Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths." Forgive me if that is not exact phrasing, that is coming from my memory. :)

Thank you for your prayers - Romans 12:12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction (I am not so good at this first part!) and faithful in my prayer.
