What a Girl Wants

IMG_3058A note to my six-year-old story-writing self who blinked and somehow turned into a pushing-40-wife-of-the-most-amazing-husband-ever-and-mother-of-three-fantastically-wonderful-wild-and-crazy-boys.

Be thankful God doesn’t always give you what you want.

And to quote my friend Beth Moore (this is admittedly a quite lopsided friendship 🙂 )

“He will either bless you with what you want, or he will bless more than just you with what you did not know to want.”

Preach it Beth. Clinging to those words today.

PS – To the four friends whose pending departure is definitely not what this girl wants and has left a stinking annoying hole in my heart: I love you and pray you will develop new endearing friendships, but I FORBID you to replace ours. Got it?

    Sorry Nathan, you missed out big time! And I mean big time!

    People cannot be replaced! Moving changes things, but we aren't going that far. We can be intentional. Plus, I'll need those friends that knew me before I became a PW! Without Corey to pick on me, I might go crazy! I will miss you something fierce, though.

      I'm pretty sure he'll find a way to pick on you :) And we are definitely going to be intentional about hanging out and I already miss you even though you aren't gone. And I'm a little jealous of those Dallas Center people. . .

      If anything was ever bittersweet, it's this for sure.

    I love you, too, Kim!! And don't you worry, these are lifelong friendships! No wait, eternal friendships!! Here's to the rest of eternity with us! FYI-all our brokenness and junk will be gone in heaven. You might even like us a little more then. :) Is that possible?!
    • ReplyKim Harms
      No brokenness and no sinus infections either... And there will be no need to move away to plant a church :) I think eternal friendship is definitely a good thing.
