After the wedding, Sara (one of the girls I used to mentor at IWU) was gracious enough to drive an hour down to Kalamazoo and meet me for coffee at Barnes and Noble. It was soooo great! We basically took turns talking each other's ears off for about two hours. What a great time to catch up! This girl totally shines with Jesus through and through--she is so exuberant and she is such a blessing and an encouragement to me!

I love the kind of friendships where you can go a while without talking, then get together and pick up right where you left off--skipping the small talk and diving deep right away. More and more I realize, as I have friends spread out all over the country, that you can't expect to keep in close contact with everyone who's ever been close to you. If you tried, you'd spend your life on email or the phone, and you wouldn't make new friends--you wouldn't be able to be "all there" right where you are. That's why I value friendships like Sara's so much. It is wonderful to be able to go six weeks or so without seeing someone, and then totally pour our your heart to her and hear her share her heart as well!

God has put so many incredible women in my life...I feel very thankful and blessed. Posted by Hello
