Friend Of The Week: Beth
Beth and I go WAAAAAAAAY back. We met as campers at Truett Camp about 10 years ago. The next year, we got to work together as counselors there, and became instant friends. Over the years God has seen us through some major ups and major downs, but all the while, He had a plan that our friendship would last forever! Beth is now serving in Bosnia, helping to build playgrounds and youth centers. She has been there for what seems like forever of a 3 year term. We don't get to talk very often because phone rates are so high, but thanks to IM we do get to chat and catch up ocassionally. Just the other day, I got a surprise IM from her, and it made me sooooo happy! She ended up signing off before I got the message she left, but it felt so good to know that she was thinking about me! :) One of the most special times, to me, in our friendship was the day, about 2 weeks before our wedding, that she called and surprised me with the news that she would be able to fly in for the wedding!!! I immediately put her in a black dress and told her that she WOULD be a part of the day! It meant so much to me to have her there on the most important day of my life...from all the way around the world! This is a picture of us from my wedding, and it's one of my favorites. Mazi, I love you & miss you so much, and I can't wait to see you in July!
