There are some people in our lives who were at one time strangers, but have engaged our story so significantly, that is has truly become part of their own journey.
On a drive to Colorado this weekend, Drake and I had the chance to stay a night in Sedona, AZ with some of these people, dear friends we had never even met before.
It was so touching to finally meet face-to-face with people who have poured out their hearts before the Lord on our behalf, people who have loved us so well from afar.
I was struck by the ease with which we connected, as if we have been friends for years. This is the beauty of Christian fellowship-the common bond of Jesus Christ where strangers are actually brothers and sisters.
And these beloved friends in AZ have truly loved us like brothers and sisters.
