Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

"Fee-Bee."  Do you have a "Phoebe" in your life, someone who's helped you over and over, encouraged you, took care of the details that made your life so much better?

I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church in Cenchreae.  I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of his people and to give her any help she may need from you, for she has been the benefactor of many people, including me.
                                                --Romans 16:1,2 TNIV 
Think of all the people the Apostle Paul knew, and here he picks out Phoebe.  He tells the Romans that she has been a helper, a blessing to oodles of people, "including me."  He also asserts, take care of her, anything she needs.
Do you have a Phoebe in your life?  How can you thank her/him?  How can you acknowledge their value in your life?  Life is so much better because of the Phoebe's who enrich us.
