Finding Friends of Faith

This week I received comments on my Pilgrim Scribblings blog from two sisters, Nikki and Tori. We have become Blogging Buddies and these two girls might end up being Pilgrim Pals. When we corresponded this week it reminded me of the history behind each of my Pilgrim Pals. At some point over the last year or two, each of you got in touch with me and a friendship began that led to you becoming a Pilgrim Pal. God brings His people together in such unique ways. Please check out the links I've shown here in this post and drop Nikki and Tori a line. THANKS, PALS!

Here's that post:

Today I received two comments here on Pilgrim Scribblings from two daughters of a Church of the Nazarene evangelist from Iowa. I've never met Nikki or Tori Rittgers (pictured) before but it's amazing how many similarities there are between this old 63 year old grandfather and these two girls, aged 10 and 15.

I've posted the "favorites" from Tori's blog and bolded, italicized and posted in RED the ones that I share. It's amazing how God's children can be so different and yet so similar.
