Today is the birthday of one of my oldest friends, the oldest. I'm talking back to the days of children's church when her polka dot turtleneck and denim skirt self, stood beside the fuzzy felt board depicting our bible story.
I'm so grateful for friendships.
There are many things my friends teach and model for me. It's the way they remind me to pray first when I have a tendency to act, how their gentle voice contrasts with mine, their ability to extend more and more grace when I feel I can't. It's the sharpening we bring each other as we walk in faithfulness alongside our Lord.
How do your friends sharpen you?
