Being married to one, and raising another, ultra-introverted guy, I know 1 Corinthians 13:12 doesn't appeal to all people to the degree it thrills my heart. For you I rest assured that God will care for every need of your heart, giving quiet and rest in abundance! But this extrovert delights at the promise of someday knowing others fully and being completely understood too!
|View I woke up to this weekend. My phone didn't capture the glow of the clouds, but it's still pretty.|
Kathy knows I collect bread clips because she has helped me repair my hanging blinds with them several times. When she handed them to me, I was giddy and would have jumped for joy if I could have. Kathy was instead rewarded with a huge grin and a hug. :)
It wasn't until later in the day when I realized just how well Kathy knows me though. My ice machine was jammed. We took it apart and Kathy washed it all out. As she pulled a frozen block of ice from beneath the hopper, she said, "There are still blueberries in here!" That's funny because early LAST YEAR our ice machine tried to ingest a bag of frozen blueberries that accidently fell into the machine. We regularly found bonus blueberries floating in our ice water for months thereafter but our treats had stopped for sometime. Sure enough, there were still a dozen berries embedded in the ice block that was jamming our machine last week. Who would even know to comment on the fact, or wash the parts without questing the blue blobs, if she wasn't invested in our lives like this?
As if friendship, deep, knowing, real investment of self, weren't enough, Kathy topped February 1 (henceforth officially know as "Happy Day" in commemoration of Kathy's and my friendship with the butterfly paper towel holder that matches my trivet she gave me for Christmas. *heart*

And look how perfectly adorable it is with the towels Mom bought me for Christmas a couple years back.
