So grateful for girls time. All I had to do was text this to Sarah:
"So in a funk".
She asked me why....in three sentences I tell her and in one sentence she says:
"Let's meet on Tuesday".
How grateful I was to go by the harbor....sit outside with my friend and drink our diet cokes...talking about life...our kids...and how to get through stuff. Sometimes you just need a little pick me up to help you realize how blessed you are and how amazing life really is.
Our conversation was like it always is...all over the place...from childhood to adulthood and beyond. It's crazy how many side conversations we have when we get together. There is one thing Sarah shared with me that was so powerful....I just have to share it.
After talking in length about something troubling my heart....Sarah shared with me how she gets through the things that really break her heart.
"When my heart is so heavy I can't bear it one more moment, I close my eyes and envision a box....and I put all of my heartache...all of my troubles in that box. Then I wrap up that box, and give it to the Lord. When I humble myself...and give my troubles over to Him...suddenly I am lighter and I know that He will help me and it's all in His hands."
I wept as I felt the truthfulness of this statement. I knew I needed to lay down my burdens to the Lord.
And I know this to be true...as my heart was heavy I felt prompted to text Sarah. It was Sunday night...at 10 pm. We NEVER text that late. She answered me. And I was comforted. My heart lightened. As we talked to day...my heart lightened. God knows my heart...and provides the way to hear the messages I need.
So grateful for friendships that help mend my heart.
