Happy Birthday Chloe

Exactly one year ago...

I finally met my friend of two years
We became closer than ever - actually we became more like sisters
She and I realized that we were truly Lucy and Ethel (her being Lucy, and me Ethel)

Exactly one year later ...

I am able to celebrate her 19th birthday with her
We have become even closer than last year
We still act like Lucy and Ethel

I am so blessed to call Chloe my best friend, my unbiological sister, my other partner in crime.

Victorious Declarations

Two months ago, I wrote an article about the power of words, if you haven't read it - you can find the post here.

Just a few weeks ago, my dear friend sent me something called "Victorious Declarations".  What it is, is a list of Scriptures that you read over yourself.  It helps you refocus your thoughts to the mind of Christ, and to speak godliness over you, your life, your thoughts, etc.

It is amazing!  So amazing, I just had to share it with you all :)
Please feel free to copy this list, print it off, and add other Scriptures to it.  Make it yours!
