It doesn’t matter how old you are…ten, thirty, or 49andcounting…every girl needs a sister-friend.
I was reading a book recently and a scripture jumped off the page at me. One-to-another. Wow, what a thought. That’s what a sister-friend means to me. We share the most heartfelt thoughts, we cry, we laugh, we rant and rave…and we spill our hearts one-to-another.
We all have a lot of “friends” out there. Nice gals. We chat it up in the grocery line, we say “hello” at church, we may even discuss a Bible Study. But who but a “sister-friend” do we call when our children are misbehaving and we’ve locked ourselves in the bathroom, who do we call but a “sister-friend” when we just want to cry because the scale has slipped over that dreaded number, who do we want to laugh with when we’ve seen our first grey hair? A sister-friend.
Some of you may not have sisters by birth, and others are lucky like I am and have sisters who are their very best friends. But no matter your circumstance, God has planted women in your life to be “sister-friends”. I promise you. Women who will encourage, women who will hold you up, women who will open your eyes to new ways of thinking.
I can’t tell you if that friend will be 80 or 20something, I have some of both…but I do know God has them waiting for you. You are not alone. Make that contact. Invite her over for a glass of tea, take a walk together, make the phone call. And enjoy the gift…one to another.
