I logged into Facebook yesterday afternoon while my husband caught up on the day's sporting highlights and my daughter unwound from another day in the middleschool. Once on I see I have a message from one of my sister's best friends. An instant smile spreads from ear to ear as I move the mouse up to click and open her precious message.
"...something in me just so strongly wanted to hear your voice tonight. I wanted to follow God's prompts...would love to give you a hug...love ya,"
Still smiling I add her number to my cell phone with anticipation of the conversation to be had in the near future. Once in my jammies and dinner started I give her a call. Her beloved husband answers and I ask if I could talk to "One Good Egg". And this she is.
Nearly two hours later with much laughter, tears, sharing, and more laughter I hit the end button unable to remove the smile from my face. In addition to memories we shared our testimonies, talked about current struggles and planned our next meeting.
With joy-filled tears I realized something. I shouldn't refer to her as "one of Heidi's best friends" but instead -- MY FRIEND and SISTER-in-Christ! God is amazing! I love you my dear friend, you truly are a good egg. One smile, one phone call, and one more reminder of how blessed I am.
For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
