I'm joining in with my virtual pal Kristen (whom I'm certain I will meet in person someday) at Out of the Blue Thursday. Details are here, and today's link-up is here.
Sometimes I forget that God answers the prayers of our hearts, and not always with blinking neon lights and a huge arrow that says "HEY LOOK--I answered your prayer HERE."
Every time we move, I have to leave friends behind. As a military family, we've moved three times, and each of those times was across great distances. I have to leave friends behind every single time, starting anew in each location.
The cry of my heart is to have friends close by. The kind I can hug in person. The kind I can call without calculating time zone differences.
Each move, each new location, God provides me friends. Multiple friends who care about . . . well, me.
Lord, I may not always say something, but today I say, thank You.
