~introducing my friend from Cali to my friends, showing her where we worship
~a visit from my Cali friend. We met on this blog. We text, we FB, we chat, we telephone talk. She flies to meet me. We have 3 precious days together.
~her ability to "get it" for she is a fighter/survivor, too!
~her example of bravery, as she shares her heart. Her realness shows such courage. Her heart matches and connects with mine.
~late-night kitchen beauty shop girl time. The sassy new cut/color I get to give her.
~sushi, sushi, sushi, SUSHI!
~my girls getting loved on, their tears when she had to leave. Little hearts had connected, too.
~Reading Psalm 91 together.
~her last night here. We sit cross-legged on the bed. Heads bowed, hands clasped, sometimes unclasping to wipe tears. We come before our God, thank Him for gifts and grace, and beg Him for healing and mercy. Our heads lift and we are amazed at how good He is to give us each other.
