Sisters


My mom used to ask me . . . "Do they EVER run out of things to talk about?"


My answer was always, "NO."




It is not that they have never been apart before . . .


There was the summer that Christy was in Africa and Jenny was in Europe.


There was Christy's year in England at Capernwray when Jenny was in Minneapolis.



And the years Jenny was at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and Christy was in Washington.



But they have been sharing adorable apartments together in Chicago for four years!


Would you pray for Christy as she moves in two weeks to England to work with Reign Ministries?



And pray for Jenny, who will still be working in Chicago at The Moody Church. (It is always harder for the one that stays behind.)



Thanks for praying for our girls . . . adorable sisters.

I am linking today to Jen.  And Soli Sisters, I have a little surprise for you. Guess who stayed at our house this weekend?



Yup, the sweet Abby from Fan the Flame and her darling family. They finished their training in Colorado and are in a big transition as they raise their final support before leaving for Hungary. Let's pray for this sister, too.



Here we are honoring our blogging roots that brought us together.

  4. I love that your daughters -- the sisters -- are best friends. I do hope that for my own girls. What a pleasing aroma to Christ that they are willing to be separated to serve Him.

  9. Dear Heavenly Father: thank You for brave and willing servants. Please bless the lot of them. In Your name I pray, Amen. (Here from Soli Deo Gloria.)

  10. Oh! Oh! Oh! That was better than I could have IMAGINED! Seeing sweet Abby with you...just divine. She (or her husband) had just sent out the latest Hungary update and said they were staying an extra day due to van work with some friends. I didn't know it was YOU! Oh, goodness me. God is so good and I am just overwhelmed at how wonderfully He helps us love each other. So sweet.

  13. Beautiful girls you have and how exciting for them both to be in the ministries they're in. On a total non-spiritual sidenote: I love the flag couch...epic!

  14. Oh my gosh! I don't know who I was more excited to see your girls (have you posted pics of them before?) or Abby! What a fun surprise for me...that's crazy. Yep, making connections in the bloggy world for sure.

  16. Glenda, love the photos and based on what I posted on Jen's website I had to laugh. I am still holding our for the hand holding from my two teenage boys. I will pray for both of your daughters. Separation is hard!!!! They will get through it because they have a most amazing MOM! God bless.

  21. Your daughters are so beautiful. Sisters are so special...I have 7 of them (one resides in heaven). We never run out of things to say either =)

    Have a great day, Glenda!

  22. Oh, as I pray for my daughters to be close friends like yours, I will lift yours up on the next leg of their separate journeys . . .

    And aren't friendships thru blogging such an extra blessing?

  23. I can pray for these girls with an understanding heart. We're playing that song around here right now, too. Ours are first cousins but two closer soul mates I have never seen. They just graduated from college where they were attached at the hip, and one has moved with her job while the other one waits. I know for a fact it's harder on the one left behind.

    I'll lift both of your girls.

  24. Sweet that their relationship is so strong.

  25. What a special treat for Abby to be cared for by your hospitality. I know it must have given her strength for her transition.

    I'll be praying for your sweet and beautiful daughters. I've been to Moody church many times. I didn't know your daughter worked there. Such a beautiful place.

  26. I'm sure these are bittersweet times for your girls - but I'm sure they'll make some wonderful memories to share with one another in the future!

    And it is SO special when we can meet up with our blogging friends in person! Looks like you ladies had a wonderful time. Praying for all! God bless!

  33. Beautiful post. I can see how proud you are of your gorgeous daughters, and rightfully so!

    I just returned home from a trip to London and I am sure Christy will love it there. Jen is hopefully making plans to visit soon.

    Tell Christy to "mind the gap"!

I am honored to be mentioned and pictured in a post with your lovely daughters:) I know how precious they are to you...we LOVED our time with you and know we could have spent a lot more.
