{visit} Five Minute Friday

It's been too long since I've had a visit with my friend. I miss her. She's the kind of friend who when we do get to visit, it won't feel like it's been months since the last visit. We will pick up, not missing a beat.

But right now, in this moment when the visit was too long ago and I miss her so much that there's a lump in my throat, just thinking about how long it's been, I'm not soothed knowing that our friendship is rock solid and will always be there, waiting for us to make space in these crazy-busy lives we lead.

So I close my eyes. Bow my head. And pray the things I know to pray, because even though it's been too long since our last visit, I still know exactly how to pray for her. Perhaps it is this, just this, that keeps us close.

In the summer of 2013, I came across a writing challenge hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker. For more information, check out this link to Five Minute Friday. The nitty-gritty is you write for 5 minutes on a word, then you share your post, and you comment on another. I hope you'll join too.


  1. beautiful post! isn't it amazing how even when apart we still now how to pray for our friends?

  2. Yes, some friends are forever friends and maybe it's because of the prayers we pray...
