one and split the shipping". So we did it! We don't dress up the same much anymore, but it is fun to have something the same. Here is a picture of us in our aprons last weekend.
I just have to brag about my sweet sister, Jackie. She is the most amazing woman! Our spiritual journeys are very similar. We believed in Jesus around age six. Grew some, but kind of back slid when we were in high school and college. After I got married and became pregnant with Josh, the Lord got my attention and this is when I would say that I made my faith my own. Jackie, unfortunately was inundated with the thinking of college professors that were very liberal. She was very confused. As my faith grew and I started learning about revering and submitting to my husband, she could see the fruit in that. She bought a Life Application Bible and took OFF! I would get convicted of something, share with her and then she would get convicted. It seemed like I was always a step ahead for awhile. Things have changed now. She has grown so much in the Lord! She knows the Word, she digs the nuggets of wisdom as if they are great treasure. If I want godly advice on how to handle something, I know that I can go to her. If we don't know the answer, we start digging some more! She is my gift from God. She is my best friend, my other half.
We talk almost every day on the phone. She is my greatest cheerleader. She encourages and advises me with my children, husband, editing devotions and my blog.
She rides a HUGE Harley, she loves tea parties and pretty things, she loves the Lord and is a wonderful mommy to two fiery redheads! She is a military wife who endures LONG absences while her husband is away on drills, trainings and wars. She is into healthy eating so much that she makes EVERYTHING from scratch, including her own cheese. She is my sister, my twin and my best friend. You can visit her at her blog http://www.homesteadwannabes.blogspot.com/
We always say, "Everyone should have a twin". We know we are blessed and we don't take it for granted.
Sorry, Jack! Just had to brag about you! Love ya...
