~🌻When two humans seem to automatically connect and feel like they have known each other forever~🌻
I don’t even remember the details of how we met, just that it was on a social network, something comparable to My Space.
I can recall thinking that she had beautiful auburn hair and blue eyes, but that is not what really drew me to her. There wasn’t a tangible reason, other than the fact, that I felt it was a God-thing.
And so embarked our friendship. She reminded me of me, when I first came to know God. I was hesitant and cautious as to whom I confided in, let alone a stranger; because I had been hurt before.
I asked questions. I was an outsider. I can imagine what she may have been thinking. Somehow, we got past all that, and it has been around 9 years that we have been kindred spirits. (Or has it been longer? 🤔🤔)
We moved our friendship over to Facebook, and have corresponded ever since. Now, for anyone who knows me, that was so unlike me, to reach out to a perfect stranger on a social network. (I taught my children never to do this, and I still don’t recommend it to children or teenagers, don’t get me wrong. 😬) The truth of the matter is, we live in a great big scary, unsafe, world!
When we know God is in it, we have to trust that God has bigger plans than we can imagine, throw our cautions to the wind, and let God have His way! I’m so glad I did! We have laughed together. Cried together. Shared together. Prayed together. She has become and truly is a kindred spirit/friend.
In writing this post, it is not my intention to embarrass or offend in any way! I hope she realizes this. 😇 I am simply giving honor to my friend. 👸
“Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.”
Proverbs 3:27 KJV
I want the world to recognize and see how truly gorgeous she is, inside and out. She is strong. (Stronger than she realizes!) She is courageous and determined. She is a Prayer Warrior. She is kind, caring, giving, and full of God’s love. She is His hands and feet. She is a cancer-survivor. She has a powerful testimony! She is a Daughter of the King. She has worth and is very much loved by her Father, the King of Kings!
She is my friend. Loyal. A secret-keeper. The melody and harmony to my song! The one who encouraged me to write till the cows come home lol. She is the reason and inspiration for this blog. Without her, I would probably not have had the courage to jump off the cliff and just “do it,” for fear of failure and what others would think. She is all these things and more–She is a KINDRED SPIRIT!
“It’s better to have a partner than go it alone…And if one falls down, the other helps…
By yourself you’re unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst…”
