Today I'm celebrating the gift of friendship, in honor of Holley Gerth's new book, You're Already Amazing.
Back in college I came across one of my most unexpected friends. It was my senior year, my group of friends had been pretty set since Freshmen year. I, honestly, wasn’t looking for a new best friend. At the time I had four jobs, I was finishing my English degree thesis, and applying to grad schools.
Yet, God dropped a friend in my lap just the same.
I loved her candidness.
Her zeal for God.
Her desire to truly set apart Sunday as a day of rest (no homework allowed!).
This friend snuck into my heart, and has found a comfy space every since!
Since those college days we’ve both become wives, we’ve both become mommies, we’ve both traveled hundreds of miles away from the homes we grew up in.
But our hearts are still knit together.
We invest in each other through notes, phone calls and Skype dates, and I love every moment of it!
And so, today, I honor you, Stephanie, because You're Already Amazing.
I'm honored to call you Friend.
"I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you, always praying with joy for all of you in my every prayer, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because I have you in my heart" (Philippians 1:3-7a, HCSB).
What friend has changed your life for the better?
