I met one of my favorite bloggers.
I made a new friend.
I made my feet cry (see photo above).
I was challenged to find joy in painful circumstances because of her.
I was inspired to exchange shame for redemption because of her.
I was encouraged to trust my own story because of her.
I was just straight up loved on by her. And her cookies.
I witnessed a glorious impossibility through her testimony.
Our individual stories of love and loss, hope and desperation, courage and fearful failures, cute shoes and crying feet - a swirling of pain and patience and perseverance are what make us pearls. I'm thankful that these women took the time to remind me that God is the author ~ not only of our faith and salvation, but our life story. Share your story with someone today.
