One of my most beloved friends, my cousin Liz, is on her way to Colorado. We visited for awhile this afternoon; the sight of her nearly empty house, even with the adorableness of my two-year-old, my cousin’s two-year-old & sweet doggy, made me want to cry even as I snapped the photo.

166/365+ proof of God’s love

A face-to-face conversation over lunch with a friend I so rarely see face-to-face anymore evidenced God’s love to me today.  Those connections with others are so vital to a happy life, and there are so few people I trust, any time I can spend with a real friend who has my respect and trust is a real blessing!

My ten-year-old has had some casual friendships over the years, but in the past nine months or so, has developed a bond with a little girl named Sasha.  They met during the past school year at the Boys and Girls Club and have forged a friendship this year.  Yesterday evening, Sasha, along with her mom and little sister, met us for dinner and in this first good friendship of my child’s life, this friendship that she chose completely independent of me, I witness God’s love.  I pray for both of my children a life filled with the love not only of family but also good friends.

Today, God’s love was revealed in laughter, talking with a good friend and the love of my family.

My kids, my cousin’s kids & one of my girlfriend’s kids enjoyed watching movies and playing together today.

Today was another rough one and I can’t honestly point to anything that illustrated God’s love to me, although I’m thankful for the love and support of some good friends.

Even during this rough time, I know God loves me.  Even when I can’t feel His presence and, in fact, feel rather separated from Him, I know He is with me.  My pain isn’t letting me feel His love right now, but I am thankfully aware that this is the real reason I’m not feeling it.

Friendship is priceless, as is laughter.  Here, my little one is pointing out to her friend the lemur poo in their habitat at our local zoo.  She was so serious and the two were so funny with their “ew” and in the release of laughter, my spirits lifted.  Proof of God’s love exists for me in this release.
