Which would I choose?



Tomorrow is my best friend's birthday.

She will be 33...I know it's probably killing her!

I was looking through years of pictures and frankly I discovered that if I had to pick my favorite moment with her-Which one would I choose?

Impossible.

With the exception of a small tisk last fall (eek!) and one night on a bus holding a certain guy's hand, I've never really even argued with her. Every time I'm with her, I'm very aware that I'm with my bestest girl pal. We ALWAYS have a blast together!

But more than that, when I think of the last few years, I remember that she's a sister to me. She loves God and so do I and so many of our conversations are about the Lord and our struggles. She's often time "gone to bat for me" to see that right is done and while she isn't perfect, she's good enough for me!

I was walking early this morning and I heard an older song that really says what I want to in this mushy, scrambled post that's the best I can do with little sleep and no money to send her a present. I wish I could some how magically have it playing but the lyrics will have to do.

Steph...My BFF...Happy Birthday and I love Ya'! You truly have blessed my life. More than you'll ever now!


Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways
you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it's ok to cry with you
Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I've been with God
and that's the way it ought to be, yeah

Cause you've been more than a friend to me
you fight off my enemies
cause you have spoken the truth over my life
And you'll never know what it means to me
just to know you've been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
more than you'll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, more than you'll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You had faith
when I had none
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn't think I could find the strength to sing

and all the while I've been hoping that I'll
do the kind of praying for you that you've done for me
and that's the way it ought to be, yeah

You have carried me
You have taken upon a burden
that wasn't your own, yeah
may that blessing return to you
A hundredfold
oh oh yeah, a hundredfold

Cause you've been more than a friend to me
you fight off my enemies
cause you have spoken the truth over my life
And you'll never know what it means to me
just to know you've been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
more than you'll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, more than you'll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know.

I'm reaching for the Kleenex! Better than any present (unless you showed up at my door). Thanks! The older I get, the more I realize how blessed I am to have such rooted friendships! From acorns to oak trees! You and me!
Love you too!
PS- I did take as many opportunities as I could to tell everyone that I was 32 today. (Amanda was near by and she kept telling people that it ended tomorrow. What are friends for!?)
We've made it to the year of Jesus!
