Friends you can totally let it all hang out
(or fly up)

Yep, I'm posting twice today. :-) And it's the weekend to boot!

I am missing several of my ministry friends right now like crazy. It's been a lonely day for me because of that. I'm with my family and I've been cleaning and cooking. I haven't been "alone" all day yet I long for sisters in ministry. I'm getting ready to go to a dinner party in just a few minutes, and I'm sure it will be pleasant. But I do long to be across the table with a cup of coffee from Tara, Melissa, and some other of you friends who are reading this, and just talk until we can't talk anymore about things we can't talk to anyone else about. It's just been one of those kinda days, ya know? And I've been making church related calls all day long while I've done work around the house and I'm just sick of the phone although all my conversations have been pleasant enough and just checking on things and people here and there. If you are in ministry, you know what I mean, I don't have to explain this to you.

I found this quote today and wanted those of you I'm missing til' it hurts to read it:

“Somewhere there is someone that dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile, so when you are lonely remember it’s true, someone somewhere is thinking of you.”

I know I can call you (and I do) but there's nothing like being face to face.

Until we meet again... I love you so much, my friends.

I'm sorry to hear that you are missing your friends. I know the feeling all too well, unfortunately! I do miss alot of sista-friends back in Ft. Lauderdale. I also miss my family that's there too. It's always nice when you can hang out with that one friend or a whole bunch of them and you can have coffee and talk for hours, and even still it's not enough because when it's all done you will be missing them again. May God comfort you through this time.

Sorry to hear how much you're missing your friends, I pray that God will open a door so that you all can come together again soon!

Maybe this will comfort you a little (smile) knowing that they miss you just as much and are anticipating to see you soon!
