Sure, sure, you've heard me say that a million times.
But it's true!
What girl is given nine soul sisters? What girl has the chance to spend a weekend with six of them and two others via skype?
Who brings ten women, all from different areas of the country and makes them friends? Without malice. With only love and respect for each other?
Yeah, God does that.
MY God does that.
I might have not been richly endowed with but more than one local friend. But I'm rich beyond belief or ability to count in the way of these nine godly women.
It's a good thing I can't earn their friendship or a place in their group, because I never could.
How many people in the kingdom of God simply love each other for who they are and what unites them? Only allowing their friendship to deepen by the gentle and strong stirring of Christ in each of our lives.
Religion doesn't unite us.
Country or origin doesn't unite us.
Maybe our writing does.
Maybe our love of laughter and good cupcakes and match-making and teasing their youngest member (ahem) does.
|Praising, worshiping the God who unites us.|
When I think about what God has given me, I want to weep. I mean really, who else is so blessed?
I think I could hold my own in such an argument.
Yes, our name might be a bit cheesy (wink), but our hearts our united. Our goals focused. Our dreams centered on the only One who matters.
And I love them. Every. Last. One. Of. Them.
Thank You, Jesus.
