Champions

Our dear friends are moving.
I am heart-broken.
Yet, I’m so excited for them (I can’t quite use an exclamation point yet).
They aren’t moving to another city or another state.
They are moving overseas.
 
They are brave.
And they take the truth:
“I can do all things through Christ”
And clasp it in their precious, moldable hands.
 
We had one last weekend together.
We possibly won’t see them for two to three years.
Our kids have grown up together.
She has three boys; I have two girls
But they love each other with a love I have yet to see among most kids.
Our girls cry their hearts out when they have to be separated.
 
And my friend …
I was determined I didn’t need a friend when God brought her into my life.
I determined I only needed Jesus.
And He blessed me with her …
Just because He can.
 
This post is to say a temporary goodbye
To the most precious family I never tire of …
To the ones who love me when I say ridiculous things …
To the ones who love me when I don’t know what I think about anything …
To the ones who love me unconditionally in spite of me.
To the ones who love me even when I spit on their French fries.
Because …
They have a Jesus kind of love.
 
Their path won’t be easy.
But God will bless them in the journey …
Just because He can.
Trust God’s path to victory!
Run like the champions you are through Christ.
And meet Him at the throne to receive the victor’s crown.
 
My precious friends. They are like my little brother and little sister. Aren’t they gorgeous?! 

Me with my “little sister” … she is ten years younger than I am, but that didn’t phase her one bit!

Our kids … my girls, her boys.

Good friends.

Our whole gang!

Our whole silly gang!
