Three Stranded Rope



"And if somebody overpowers one person, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not easily broken." Ecclesiastes 4:12


In this picture, from left to right, is Faith, Olivia Faith and Olivia. No, I didn't stutter. And they used to all refer to each other as "Two Wawa" (as in two Olivias).

We go to a large church. When I saw an announcement in the bulletin for twin girls just 3 months older than my baby, who were named Faith and Olivia, I knew I wanted to meet the mom who chose the same names I did for my daughter, Olivia Faith.

Never would I have guessed that when I finally did meet her, when our girls were 3 years old, that she would become a God-sent friend to us. Crystal (a.k.a. Dr. Crystal) was the one who eventually led us in the natural direction that helped us deal with our youngest daughter's medical issues, including her severe allergic reactions.

The three girls have become fast friends, not to mention their mothers. How could they not? It almost seemed "meant to be." I just love how God puts people in our paths.

such a great way to show how you apply that verse to your life. Often we find ourselves reading the scriptures but never really understanding how they apply to our lives. We understand them but do we really live them. And, what a cute trio of girls.

Amazing!

Truly God's ways are mysterious...and they are 3 lovely girls!

And your verse is very true...that is why, I always pray and struggle to make sure God is part of any relationship I build/have.

This is way neat! God is behind the scenes in so many ways in our lives. We will never know all the beautiful "coincidences" that HE orchestrated 'till we meet him in heaven! God Bless you and those precious girls.
