A year ago I wrote a letter to you two. I planned to have us all meet up and I wanted to read it. However, life got crazy. Things happened, and to be honest I would have probably been so nervous to even read it out loud. I probably would have started tearing up when I began reading"Dear J and L." Plus, we are now in different cities (and even states.) I think getting us all on the same page is pretty cool. I promise I will try to bring my "Sappy Ally" down to a minimal. Without further ado, here is the letter.
Dear J and L,When people ask me "what was one moment that God revealed himself to you?" I always reply with "when he gave me two people that have impacted my life and my heart tremendously." I then go on to explain my first year of college. I was in my dorm room and I felt that the Lord took everyone away from me. He took my friends I had for 12 years and I was stranded. I prayed every day that He would put someone in my life, just one friend who understood me. For a little while things were silent and things got to where I didn't really think he was hearing me. Until one day I wanted to get my hair cut (and not by the crappy workers at Great Clips) and one day I noticed something at church.
J, I remember the drive on the way to your house I felt this feeling. Now, I couldn't describe it. But I knew something was going to happen. I didn't really think that a friend of mine from high school would reach out to me and when she mentioned "she's Catholic, just like you" I didn't really think anything of it. When I met you I literally was like "oh my gosh, we need to be friends because I love how much you love Jesus" and my inner Jesus self came out. That's when I knew I had something in me that you helped me bring out.
