Hello my dears! Do you know what it means to have two wonderful sisters who encourage you, tear you down when you need it, and then build you back up again when you are in the pits of despair? Do you know what it is like to go out on a sunny day, stand in front of a camera and giggle and goof off as if you hadn’t a care in the world? I do. I have two of the best sisters in the whole wide world, and together we form a “threefold cord” that is not easily broken.

About a week ago we girls received a surprise parcel in the mail from Meadow and Fawn. When we opened the package, we found its contents to be three identical lockets with a photo of the three of us in each, along with our inspiration verse, Ecclesiastes 4:12. This phrase from Ecclesiastes 4:12, “…A threefold cord is not easily broken…” has become the foundation for our blog, so imagine our joy when we received such a sweet gift capturing the very essence of the Boyer Family Singers blog in three beautiful necklaces.
We were so touched by the thoughtfulness of Alexis. The gold lockets she sent are so perfectly simple and beautiful, we can wear them with practically anything. I don’t know about you, but lockets have a special place in my heart. What other piece of jewelry allows you to carry around a picture of the person (or people) that you love?
Now, when the day comes that we girls are apart, we will each have a locket to remember our sisterhood by, and know that even though we can’t see each other, there we are, the three of us in our corners of the world, cheering each other on, and indirectly reminding each other that this threefold cord of sisters that the Lord has put together is not easily broken.
Every day has its trials and its joys. Some days we find ourselves above the clouds in our joy, and others we think we are in the lowest depths of the earth because of our sorrow. But the Lord is always there. He sends us help to remind us of that fact, and in my case that help comes in the form of two affectionate sisters. We laugh together, we get annoyed with one another (more than you know!), and are fiercely loyal to each other. We always have each other’s backs and are ready to fight for one another. But you see, that is what happens when you love someone. You may not always joy in their company, you may not always agree, but nevertheless you are there for each other, and will never forsake one another. Even to the very end, you desire what is best for one another. And though there are many different kinds of love in the world, there is a love that only sisters can share, and I am thankful that the Lord has blessed me with such a gift.
You know another great thing about these two sisters of mine? We get to have fun taking photos together for this here blog! The spring weather in Ohio is always odd, so you never really know if you will need a cardigan, or end up sweltering in your chambray palazzo pants. Jessica and Charlotte are more warm blooded than I, so they went out with their short sleeves, quite happy in the warmth of the sun, while there I was in my delightful cashmere cardigan, equally content in my level of warmth. Normally I despise Spring’s shiftiness of temperament, but this year I have come to appreciate it. It causes us to stretch our wings sartorially, and try new outfit combinations that we hadn’t thought of before.
Oh Spring, what a lovely season it is, full of sunshine, joy, flowers and the happy songs of birds in the trees. And we three get to join in their happy song as the expectation of Springtime swells into the full strength of Summer’s fun. There may be a bit of squabbling mixed into our tunes, but the Lord will always remind us “… a threefold cord is not easily broken…”
