Sometimes people are in our life forever. Sometimes only a short time. We never know.
A few days ago Jen asked for prayers for her best friend Patty. They have been life time friends.
You know the kind of friend I'm talking about.
She's the one who knows all your secrets, but still loves you. She's the first person you call when you've met "the one" you're going to marry. Or vent to because of the day you've had at work.
She's the one who cheers your children on because she loves them, and they love her, almost as much as you do.
She's the friends voice you need to hear in the middle of a storm. Her voice alone can calm you and restore your sanity.
I hope you are blessed to have a friend like I've just described. I am blessed, several times.
Today, Jen and Patty's family are facing unknown storms in the coming days. Although Patty's "storms" are over, she has graduated and was called home a few days ago.
Jen, along with Patty's heart-broken family is left here to go on without that precious child of God.
Know Jen that Patty was blessed to have a devoted friend like you, a forever friend.
My prayers are with you Jen. Please pass them on, for all of us, to Patty's family.
