Anyway, last THursday evening, I realized, perhaps, one huge reason why one certain lovely girl and I were brought into each other's lives. I'm not her closest friend, but at SCA I'm the one who knows her best. It also turns out that I had gone through almost the exact same things she's working through about 1 1/2 years earlier. She came up and spilled; I identified. I didn't really read too deep into this situation until I got to my sister's later that evening. As I shared my heart with her she helped me see that there was a purpose in all the hardship in my life before where before, I had not. Before, I would have said, "Why? I don't get it! There is absolutely no reason for this happening!" Now, I see why God allowed (or at least one reason ;) ) to happen what He did and I can even say I'm thankful for it.

Man, I had never thought about having a specific friend and there being this huge point behind God having brought you two together. I mean, all the time, I'm so thankful for the friends He's given me, and I know He gave them to me, but I guess I never stopped to muse over there might be a bigger reason other than my personal enjoyment ;). Then again, since there is a purpose in everything He allows, I wonder why I didn't realize it sooner!
