I so appreciate the offers for blizzards and sweet tea.

Really, I do!!

I just hope you all know that I didn't post that to ask, just to say, "Here is where I am."

As one of my favorite country songs goes, "it ain't always pretty, but it's real." (typed with the tune being hummed.)

I actually had some sweet tea today. It was refreshing.

But, not as refreshing as my conversation this morning with a dear friend who has so much wisdom to offer.

I always leave my conversations with this woman feeling challenged, encouraged, and wanting to be a better me.

She brings perspective and speaks into my life in a way that no one else ever really has. And, guess what, she is moving.

Honestly, I feel I just uncovered this treasure in her in the last year, and now it will be much harder to interact.

That's okay, because the fact that she is moving to the place that she is, in the stage of life that she is in, speaks volumes to me about her faith in God and willingness to engage in a new adventure with excitement and anticipation.

You don't see that very often.

I feel blessed to be exposed to it in real life.

I hope I can have the faith to live that way in my life, no matter what the calling or what stage of life I am in.
You know who you are. Thank you for blessing me with your time, your prayers, and your wisdom.
No matter the distance, my prayers go with you.

I am excited to hear about the adventure you have ahead of you and feel privileged to be a small part of that through relationship and prayer.

  1. Now a days moving isn't the death of a friendship....thank goodness!

    I thank God every day that He has allowed me to live in such an age that the internet and all that goes with that helps me to keep in touch with those that I love! :)
