Today, my best friend moves to Dallas, Texas for the next three years. My heart is overwhelmed with so many emotions, but excitement is the strongest one. I can't wait to cheer her on as she chases after Jesus by following His lead, and I have no doubt that He is going to use her to blow this world up with His gospel. I'm going to miss seeing her several times each week, but I'm pumped for potential road trips to Texas being in my (hopefully) near future; that's right, #HPBdoDALLAS! I'm going to have to get use to the time difference, but I know we'll have established hour(s) to sit and chat. Five years ago, when we first met, I never knew how much I would love + cherish + praise our Father for our unlike-any-other friendship, but now that I do, there's nothing in the whole world that could tear me away from it. They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, and I can assure you that we'll be proof of that.
In honor of her departure + our last #HPB night for quite some time, we ventured downtown to dine at Tupelo Honey Cafe followed by dessert at our favorite ice cream shop. Yep, you guessed it: Kilwin's. Then, we cozied up on Jacob + B. Davis' couch to just be. We talked + laughed + reminisced + prayed + cried + started picking dates for our road trips. It was a full evening, one that I'll thankfully reflect on for a long, long time.
P. Sawyer, you are anointed by the Spirit of the Living God, and I am confident when I say that the enemy doesn't stand a chance with you working against him. Thank you for your faithfulness + your grace + your trust + your tremendously huge heart. I'm already counting down the days to when I'll see you again, and I'll be in a state of constant prayer over you + your journey. May your soul be at peace + your feet follow along the path of Christ + your tenderness be used to transform the lives of those around you + your relentless supplication continue to be the most selfless piece of who you are. More than anything, may you never doubt for a single second that you are loved beyond your wildest dreams.
