The beautiful pines in Angeles National Forest.
I boarded the plane last week still not fully aware of the odd place I was putting myself in.
I walked off the escalator, saw Bina and in that moment realized, we were not strangers. That was my friend. Waiting for me by the baggage claim.
Hey, remember when I thought you were going to be a serial killer?
That was also my friend's pastor standing next to her.... they claim it wasn't because of lack of faith in me.;) I say that was a God thing. He sent a servant at that time to send a little reassurance to both of His daughters. This was His plan, and His guiding hand was on it, starting last August.
After an evening of many laughs, tear wiping- from the laughter, and belly aches- from the laughter, it was time to meet her family. More "strangers".
The dearest women in the world, and maybe a little goofy too.
I'm Simply Amazed.
To my dear sweet Sister Bina. Words cannot express the joy that came with meeting you Face to Face. The fears gone. The insecurity wiped away. To pray, to laugh, to hold, to cry, to sing. (some of us more off key than others *ahem*). This past weekend was a gift so much greater than I could have ever imagined. I now miss you- and those looks- and I look forward to another day we see each other face to face.
God has brought us together through this crazy internet life. And I thank Him for you. I love you.
God is Good!!!
