Awake at 4:30 this morning, this gorgeous view welcomed me into a new day.
That's not my usual morning sight.
But that's because I was up at Selah, JV's guesthouse for our team, with these two precious women, Laura and Amy.
Every summer since 2003, we've spent time together.
It used to be for vacations with our husbands and children; but now it's just an overnight with us three here at Selah.
But oh what a good overnight slumber party it is! We pack as much as possible into those hours, loving on each other as long-time friends.
My life has been, and continues to be, so rich because of these two women's input, encouragement, spurring on in the faith and love, not to mention their deep walks with God. I am a better person because of God's gift of their friendship.
"Laura and Amy, love you two so very much! Thank you for a "good to the last drop" overnight together. You mean so much to me. How I thank the Lord for our years and years of friendship. How I thank him that we have more years ahead of us!"
