Sometimes God sends special people into our lives to bless us along the way. One of these dear people is Ruth Hoorn. I met Ruth a little over a year ago at a ladies tea at church. We happened to sit at the same table... well I guess it didn't just "happen". God put Ruth in my life to pray for me. Everytime I see her she lets me know she is praying for me (and asks if I have met a nice boy!). I saw her again yesterday morning at our Christmas tea. During the tea she shared about her life growing up in Germany and what traditions they celebrated during Christmas. She has had a difficult year with her invalid husband and has recently recovered from hip surgery. Through it all she was thankful of God's faithfulness. What an encouragement to me... It was so nice to talk to her and know that she is still praying for me.
