Provérbios 18.24



“In friendship...we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years' difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another...the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting--any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you," can truly say to every group of Christian friends, "Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another." The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.” 

― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Custa-me escrever sobre elas sem chorar. Para mim, a forma como estas mulheres têm sido usadas para me incitar a glorificá-Lo em tudo o que faço é impressionante. Eu não mereço tantas bênçãos, tanta graça.

Jesus, obrigada!
