... so we have been dashing about campus dodging raindrops and lightning, laughing as we tiptoe through puddles under umbrellas that only manage to keep the top few inches of our bodies dry.
Recently, they asked if I would bring something for them to do on their lunch hour while we eat lunch together. They enjoy crafts, so I brought a suitcase full of supplies along with my lunch bag. I taught them how to make the little 'blessing baskets' that I taught my church friends at the women's retreat last month.
I loved seeing the individual ways they expressed themselves through ribbon, tape, and paper.
I also enjoyed being able to provide an hour of relaxing and setting the tone for meaningful conversation.
Each of them thanked me when it was time for me to leave, expressing their gratefulness for a friend who would bring all 'that stuff' so they could learn something new.
God continues to give me moments of pointing them clearly to the Savior; one has come to church with me and brought her son as well.
Thank you for praying for my special friends. I long to call them 'sisters'.
