How do I even describe this friendship we've built?!? You have got to be one of the most intentional and caring people I've ever met! Your heart for God and worship and all things festive have restored something in me that I didn't realize was in such need of restoration! How can I thank you for being not just a friend on the surface, but a best friend that sees and knows and understands?! I'm truly grateful to God for making our paths cross! From you I've learned incredible perseverance, courage in the chaos, laughter in the pain, and what it can be like to lay down our cares at the foot of the cross and allow joy to invade! You've been my go to person especially this past year... always up for a last minute adventure! I will cherish every memory and look forward to making many more.. despite the distance these next couple years will hold. I know we will remain connected cause you're like family!
Jesus, hold my friend close and fill her with your presence! Amen!
