Yet another Five-Minute Friday link up! Forgive me if it sounds like mush, I've been writing a term paper this week and my brain is rather like smashed potatoes right now...
I’ve prayed for you since I was in the fifth grade; feeling out of place and awkward, feeling misunderstood and weak. I prayed for a spouse, yes, but I also prayed for you, sweet friend, sister in Christ.
My heart ached for that one who I could share laughter of ridiculous things, share embarrassing moments without fear, share the kind of prayers that can only take place between friends.
Tears, joy, goofy, nerdy excitement!
I prayed for you and God said “yes”. How many times has He said “no”? How many times have I not understood? His promises are great, His gifts are kind, and He gave me you as a friend.
Like a missing half of a whole, the second puzzle piece, you are often the mouth of God to me, speaking His truth in love and mercy.
Shared tears, shared joys…shared wine!
How can I tell you what you mean to me? How many wounds your friendship has healed? How happy I am to have been blessed with you.
Sweet friend, how I cherish your wise words, your brutal honesty, your inappropriate jokes that always make me laugh on a cruddy day.
Thank you. That’s all I can really say.
