Love is for friends, Day 3

For Shauna:

Day 3: I love how inspiring you are. You dream dreams, and that encourages me and others to do the same. You have beautiful visions and goals for yourself and your family members, and the most AMAZING part is that they are not "plans." You hold them loosely and you let them change and grow and evolve. You know GOD's plans, if they are different, are better than what you can dream up any day.

For Leslie:

Day 3: i love your desire to search out God's ideas for you.
you are someone who wants to work at figuring out His desires for your growth.  you are someone who wants to hear the hard stuff.  you don't want me to just always tell you what you want to hear.  that calls me to a higher friendship and at the same time is freeing me up not to tiptoe around your preconceived ideas of things(which we all have).
that is real friendship.
i don't know how many people i could have that level of friendship with since it is such a big commitment...ya know?
i am invested.
you bring that commitment out of me.
i love that.
