This week is going to be a hard one. My friend and Max's friend are moving. Julie has been my prayer partner for over a year and Max and Jacob have been good friends since just after we moved to Cody.
Wherever I've gone God has been gracious to give me exactly what I need relationally. I've been blessed to have people who invest in my life, that encourage and pray for me. Julie has been such a blessing to me in Cody, it's hard to say goodbye. God has used our relationship to refine and grow me in such important ways.
I've also seen God working in Jacob and Max's relationship. It has certainly been a tool God has used to teach both boys about relationships and love. I know Max has grown a lot in his ability to be kind, share, work together, have patience, forgive and more. He really loves his "Jacob friend".
I truly believe relationships are our training ground. We learn, and practice the truth's we're learning, in the context of relationship. With out them there would be no maturity. I am thankful for the good gift of friendship in my life. We will certainly miss the Myers family!
