My Hope for You

I am so blessed. Who could ever ask for better friends/family than I have? I don't think it's possible...


Being a little homesick these last few days has led to having conversations on the phone. I'm so glad the world is smaller with telecommunications!


I was going to title this blog with a specific friend's name and say "I hope you all have a "___________" in your life" and then realized that I wouldn't know what name to fill in that blank. There are so many to choose from!


I am blessed with so many different friends (which includes my family) and they all bless me with similar things and yet also meet different needs in my life.


I hope that you're able to say the same thing about your life.


I hope you all have a friend that points you back to Christ in every circumstance.


I hope you all have a friend you can call when you run into an old crush.


I hope you all have a friend who's the first person you'd want to tell when you get a new job assignment.


I hope you all have a friend you can call when you want to share about the beauty of God's creation that you're witnessing -and pretend that they're right there next to you.


I hope you all have a friend that understands and listens when you tell them you learned your ex-boyfriend is dating someone new.


I hope you all have a friend that you can call when you need to be reminded of God's faithfulness and love.


I hope you all have a friend that lets you into their family-life and understands you love their family as your own.


I hope you all have a friend that gets excited for you and your future, who might believe even more than you do that things will work out in God's perfect plan.


I hope you all have a friend that prays for you.


I am so thankful for you, my friends. Thank you for the huge blessing you are to me! !

Well said, Kari! You are such a blessing to me! BTW, I've already asked Eric to take Josiah sometime soon so I can have a half day with the Lord too. I'm already looking forward to it!

Thank you for your words of encouragement, Kari! You are such a dedicated friend to so many people! It's amazing that no matter where you're living, you always have friends nearby. That's unique and a testimony to the energy you invest in people.

It was so good talking with you the other night. I appreciate your honesty and your adventurous spirit.

Seeing that Christine already left a comment makes me want to hang out with you two in your old living room! I'll bring the chocolate for us and some chips for Christine!
