"Will you pray for me."
... the words from one of my closest friends.
Five words inside the little bubbles of our text messages.
Five words that said so much.
And I thought, THIS.
THIS is true friendship.
When we're long past the surface. When we've allowed one another into our real. When our vulnerable is on full display. When we welcome each other into those times of our life when we're waiting, when we're uncertain, when the ground beneath us feels a little shaky. When we trust another to carry some of our own heart's burden. When we stand in the gap for one another.
When we hold one another up.
For it is the dearest honor of friendship.
I am praying for you my friend.
