That is so totally true. People are always going to hurt you. I don’t think there’s any way around it. But not all people are going to hurt you. And God has a way of going above and beyond when you need it most…even if you don’t realize you need it.
I met Emily and her mom Kristin a couple years ago at the Pursuit Conference. We totally hit it off. Stayed in touch closely. Met up again the next year at the conference. And I was so incredibly honored when Em asked if I would be in her wedding. This girl means the world to me…along with so many others God has been kind enough to bring into my life.
I left on Wednesday (with this in my bag)
And came back Sunday night. My time away was exactly what I needed. Spending time with these sweet, amazing, godly friends (and making a couple incredible new ones!) was literally like God just smiling on me. I could say a lot more about the way God works, and the peace and joy I feel right now, but I will just leave you with some iPhone pics of my time in the gorgeous state of Washington.
The entire week/weekend was so Christ-centered, and I am just blown away by the friends God has blessed me with. He is so good, and He knew I needed all of them in my life.
Some things that happened in Washington will stay in Washington…ha! But some things needed to get blogged.
