life is beautiful. it is full of places to go and things to see, but most importantly, it's full of people. people that we are called to love. to pursue. to speak life and truth into. to invest. to build up and encourage. we were made for community and relationship. we were made for each other.
i'm incredibly grateful that jesus has brought people into my life who speak truth, who don't back away from the hard conversations, who don't allow me to believe the lies the world and satan want me to believe, who spread joy every where they go, who point out the beauty, who remind me that i am enough, and who, on a daily basis, invite me to believe better things.
i hope you have friends like this too, and i hope you are that friend to someone else.
happy friday, brave hearts. enjoy the long weekend!
