Romans 12:15

Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. (N.K.J.V.)

My friends are gifts from God. Each one is unique and precious with their own beautiful fingerprints stamped on my life. They are part of my story, my testimony, and my ministry. They work to catch my tears while theirs flow freely.  They exhale laughter in the same places I do. They have watched my spirit be molded like clay in the Father’s hand. They prayed while I waited… and begged God for my waiting to finally come to an end.

We love one another. (Regardless of how mad we become.)

We laugh with one another. (Never at one another, always with one another.)

We cry with one another. (At least once a month. Wink.)

We shop with one another. (This is vital in female bonding.)

We eat chocolate with one another. (If she gains a pound, I gain a pound. Eat now; cry later!)

We thank God for one another. (And we never stop.)

We pursue Christ with one another. (Always.)

No one is meant to walk through grief alone and no one is meant to rejoice alone. God wove our hearts together, and I give Him glory, praise, and thanks for my precious friends.
