I have been priviliged the past few days to host my good friend Sarah. She is one of my very best friends - she reminded me just recently that we've known each other for 12 years! Hard to believe sometimes. Of course, that's what makes our friendship so good - it is comfortable and we know so much about each other that even after we haven't seen each other for a while, we fall back into easy conversation.
Sarah has been living in Manila, Philippines for the past two years teaching children of missionaries at Faith Academy. She came home for a visit this summer and has been making the circuit of Texas - visiting friends, family, supporters - and living practically out of her car (which I can imagine is getting pretty tiresome!).
So, while she needed to be in Dallas for a conference downtown this week, she crashed at my place. It has been so fun to have her there - it almost felt like we were roommates again. I'll get to see her for another weekend before she heads back across the ocean and probably get to take her to the airport.
God, thank you for friendships that are deep and abiding and can span the breadth of time and space!
