Who Do You Miss?

I know all of us have people in our lives that we love dearly who are far away from us geographically. That sucks sometimes…

I just wanted to let them know how much I love them and miss them –

  • Stephanie – my oldest and very dear friend. Who would have thought that 700 miles and 20 years later we would still be as close as we are? You make me so happy and I am grateful for your friendship. I am so glad that you are my babies’ “faffy” and my best friend…
  • Mindy – you have become like a sister to me and I am confident that God put us together so many years ago because He knew what you would have to go through. I am amazed by what He has done in you and in me as I have watched you deal with horrific circumstances. I love you more than you know…
  • Sarabess – I knew when we met at that youth camp year ago that there was purpose in it. You have become my sounding board and my confidant – what would I do without you? We have got to do something about only seeing each other every 5 years, though…
  • Kirstie – we are separated by so much more than miles. I will never understand why God took you from us so early in your life, but I know He is sovereign and I trust Him still. You are so dear to me – you were an amazing mom, wife, friend and daughter of the King and you are missed so much.
  • Pops and Mama Reba – I have learned so much from you. I learned from you that there is a proximity to the anointing and I am so grateful for having the opportunity to be close to you both. What I have gained from you is invaluable to me and I pray that God gives me the chance to continue to learn from you as I watch you follow after Him.

There are more – so many more – but this is enough for today.

Who do you miss?

    Amy & Angela – not because they’re far away physically, but because they didn’t understand when we made the move from the religion we had been raised in to real relationship and freedom in Christ, and they chose to pull away. They have both left their marks on my life in their own way and I’ll always miss their friendship and will always love them.

    Bethanie – my friend who dated my husband before me ..hehe ;)….(okay maybe it was only one date) She was the most encouraging, positive, joyful person I’ve ever been around. She married a traveling musician and moved away, and life just isn’t the same without her around.

    It’s amazing how life has a way of changing things.

    I miss you, Min & Kirsti, and their mom. True friends are like family, and that’s what you all are. I even miss a few folks who live in the same town as me, but I never see them anymore. Thank you for the sweet things you said. I love you, too! I’m very thankful to have your friendship. It’s so comforting to know that in all of the changes that life brings us, some things remain the same.

    If I can see clearly enough through my tears to respond… I don’t know where to begin, Abbye. You know you have been my rock and strength through great difficulties. I don’t know what I would have done without you. Thank you for your unconditional love, your wise words, and constant encouragement. There’s so much I don’t understand, but I don’t have to. I keep looking ahead and celebrating the wonderful people and gifts that God has brought into my life. He is forever faithful and I remember that every time I think of you. I love you!
