I’m not who I was: Friendship

8:58 AM

When I started this blog, I didn’t have many friends.  In fact, other than my siblings, I only had one friend outside of my family. That was one of the reasons I started my blog. I had ideas I desperately wanted to share with people outside of my family, but most people, even the ones in my church, weren’t interested in hearing them.

I had been blogging about a two or three months when this girl named Jessica sent me an e-mail. She asked if we could be writing buddies. I said yes, not thinking it would last long. About a year later, we were still going back and forth, and we decided to start a devotional blog. I had no idea what would come from that.

In 2009, there were some big changes in my life, and my family and I were left very hurt and wounded, emotionally. We helped each other, but when you are all hurt, it helps to have some well people to help you. To my absolute amazement, the writers of MOHL rallied around me. Through e-mails, messages, letters, and phone calls, God not only used them to help me heal, they became my friends.

When I started this blog, I felt alone. As I write this, my life is so full of friends that it is overwhelming. I give thanks to my father in heaven that I am not who I was.
