I read some lines today that remind me of my own little 'band of brothers', er, sisters.
Heidi, Jenni, Michelle--
We hear each other's stories. We discover each other glories. We learn to walk with God together. We pray for each other's healing. We cover each other's back. This... is the essential ingredient...
-- whatever else you do, you must have a small fellowship to walk with you and fight with you and bandage your wounds.
("Waking the Dead" by John Eldredge)
