Friends

Friends are a funny thing. Some come into your life for a season, some for life, some are fun friends that you just hang with, some are encourager's, others are who you turn to in crisis and on a rare occasion you meet a friend that is all of the above. In my life I have had many different kinds of friends and to be honest I have had some really bad friends. Friends that seem to suck the life out of you rather than give it, but God has used those friendships to teach me how to love deeply, whether of not you are loved in return.
At home I am very blessed with an amazing family, my mom and my sisters are my best friends in the world and I could tell them anything. I also have three great friends, whom I love very much. Chrissy and Maria and my friend Rachel in Brazil, whom I talked to today.... the list goes on and on.... I am blessed. Unfortunately, I could not bring any of them to Missouri with me, so I had no one. On the first day of commission I met a wonderful girl named Ellisa. She and I clicked. In fact we clicked so well people have asked in we are related, if we came together, and how long we've been friends, I have known her less than a week. I believe that God has given her to me and me to her as a gift. It is rare you meet someone that you are so comfortable with that you feel like you've know them forever, but that is what we have. I am so grateful to know her and I hope our friendship continues to grow.
No matter what comes from a friendship, whether it be good or bad, love the way God does, forgive the way HE does, and speak truth the way HE would.
