On Friendship {FMF-Small}

When God Answers Prayers 
You Didn't Know You Were Praying

I am reflecting on the past six months and realizing the joy that has come to my life through some new friendships.

Sometimes you don't know what you were missing until it is right in front of you.

Sometimes you meet someone and instantly you know that they belong in your life. 

Sometimes you meet them online first!!!!

Then you meet them in real life at inRL and your life is changed for the better.

Sometimes God knows what and who you need before you do. (OK, so he knows ALL the time.)

It is no small thing to step out of your comfort zone and into someone else's life or to let them into yours.
And the impact is anything but small.

I am so thankful for friendships that are developing in my life.

God knew what I needed and His timing is perfect.

The Story of my life. We all have one. I've spent a lot of time trying to write my own. I wanted it to look a certain way, I only wanted people to see the good parts, the happy parts. The beautiful.

But that isn't true life, that is a story. 

I want to share my life with people, all of my life, not just the pretty parts. You don't truly get to know someone, to trust them, to have relationship and community until you share your whole life, even the ugly parts.

So now, I am writing a new story for myself, one where there are no hidden chapters, where fear isn't hidden behind a smile, where grief has its place. No edits and re-writes. 

I want my life to be an open book.

There is life and love in our stories and I want to share mine with you. 

(And I want to be a part of yours!)
