The Blessing of Sisters

For those of you that have them…you know that yes, they are a blessing. May not always seem that way, but what would you do without them? Hey, God set us up together and that is good enough for me!

I spent the day with mine yesterday in Gettysburg, PA, having a Christmas get together. We ate at the Dobbin House and wandered the streets finding some special gifts for loved ones that you just can’t find at Macy’s! Can’t say anything about them here…or the surprise would be ruined! Later we sat in a diner having a “sisterly” conversation over hot chocolate…the two young women working there gave us more than a couple of looks and smiles as we “discussed” and laughed, shed a few tears and even held hands and prayed out loud for our relationship. My two sisters are younger than myself and twins, adding a special dimension to our relationship in more ways than one!

Probably the most famous “sister act” in the Bible is Martha and Mary…connected by love for each other and Christ even in their differences. Both wonderful women, but uniquely spirited. Take a minute to read the story…Click here.

So today, I share with you the following video clip from one of my most favorite holiday movies to bring some cheer to you as we continue to wait in celebration of Advent!

And remind you to give your sister a call today to tell her you love her no matter what!

  1. So good Ellen! What a surprise to see the video you posted. One of my favorites. My sister and I sang that song on stage in high school. She was in 10th grade and I was in 12th. One of the highlights of my high school years. My mother made us matching skirts and shirts.

  2. Ellen, I loved this. I have a younger sister. She is my only sibling and lives in Turkey. I so miss her. I cannot wait to be with her to have a sisterly conversation over a cup of Turkish coffee!
