Presence and gifts

Dinner last night with dear friends from Vancouver, BC, from my Central College days. Besides just catch up and spending time together, barlow_girl and I also had the rare opportunity to talk about the difficult situation in which we've found ourselves recently—not only are they far enough removed that it's OK to bring it out for discussion, but they've also had to navigate similar waters themselves. Being able to share our struggles at all was a real Godsend (I've only been able to do so a bit in the past couple of weeks, and Amy hasn't really had anywhere to turn at all beyond God and family), and being able to talk and listen regarding what faithfulness looks like in our circumstance was a wonderful gift and encouragement. Nothing's changed as far as we know, but to be so simply and tangibly reminded of God's presence with us is a far better comfort than the clarity and control I crave.

That is one of the many beautiful things about friendships.

Blessings to you and Amy.
