Behind the Scenes: The Meaning of the Mug
For almost 3 years, we got together for coffee almost every week. While our 7 kids (4 mine, 3 hers) played, we talked about everything - marriage, parenting, schooling options, potty training, Bible study: LIFE. With encouragement, accountability, giggles, tears, honesty, prayer and coffee we saw each other through the ups and downs of life! Her bubbly personality and enthusiastic encouragement gave me the courage to try new things and finish hard tasks. This is true Christian fellowship!
I will miss those coffee/playdates greatly! But I trust God will use our now long distance friendship to still lift each other up. (Besides, we have to stay in touch - our boys are best buds and there is much talk of an arranged marriage between one of my girls and one of her boys.)
We both grew so much spiritually over the last 3 years, I also believe God used our time together to better prepare each of us to encourage other wives and moms who come into our lives to be passionate followers of Christ. Thank you Lord, for this amazing friendship!
Love you & miss you, Kari!
