2/3 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
ice cubes
1/2 cup cold water
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping, thawed
1 ready-to-use reduced-fat graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz.)

SLICE 1 cup strawberries; refrigerate for later use. Chop remaining berries; set side. Add boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to cold water to make 1 cup. Add to gelatin; stir until slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice.
WHISK in COOL WHIP. Stir in chopped berries. Refrigerate 20 to 30 min. or until mixture is very thick and will mound. Spoon into crust.
REFRIGERATE 6 hours or until firm. Top with sliced berries.

This recipe makes me want to call my girlfriends over for a slice and a tall glass of sweet tea!

God blesses us with friends to share life with, but our friends are never to be our “lifeline”…that is God’s job. God blesses us with friends to encourage us to reach our full potential….in Christ. God blesses us with friends to hold us when we mourn….but HE is the great comforter. God blesses us with friends to guide us when we lose our way….but HE is the Good Shepherd.

Friends are a blessing from heaven. Choose your friends wisely. Surround yourself with women who will point you back to your Creator when you get a little sideways in the road. Make sure that those close to you are closer to Christ.

This side of heaven, friends can truly ease the burdens of life. They are a gift, a “sweet taste of the love we are created for”.

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2

A righteous man is cautious in friendship, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
Proverbs 12:26
