My friend, Fox

She has mentored me hugely in my Christian walk, as has Kara. She says what I seek to hear and sometimes that which I don't want to hear. They are my two most important Christian women and I wouldn't be who I am without them.

All day thoughts of her and her family have come to the forefront of my mind. When I was six years old I came home from first grade and when I walked in the door I found out my dad was gone. They'd gotten a divorce. My eyes cried. Not me, but my eyes by themselves.

Strange. It was like that today. My eyes have been crying by themselves and my nose running.

And at the same time, I am trusting fully in our Heavenly Father too. Despite the miles, our prayers of intercession and supplication rise heavenward in unison.
