Check out that Smize!
Pull up a chair and watch how my girl Katy WERKS. IT. in this Makeover Monday.
Who would have ever known?
I can honestly say that every time we are together, we reminisce about E'RY THANG (among other "thangs"). And when we reminisce, we are ALWAYS just laughing in disbelief at how God has woven our lives' stories. The way that God used mutual friendships and one single phone call to alter the rest of our stories and ultimately bring us together. Us being not just the two of us, but our husbands and their friendships along with a handful of others.
The thing that brought us together in the first place is the same thing that brought Austin and Katy over to our neck of the woods for a few days this past week to play. We (my husband, Steve, as well as Katy's husband, Austin) met when we traveled with Life Action Ministries together in one of their worship bands. Soon after we began rehearsals for the road, Austin had a visit from Katy, who was then just his girlfriend. I gotta be honest, I don't really remember many details from meeting her for the first time other than she seemed 100% legit, but I do recall her being a breath of fresh air that I was desperately needing. Pretty much since that moment, our lives have been moving in tandem through insanely similar seasons unlike any other friendships that are in our same stage of life. Even though some amount of distance has always separated us, we did get to spend a few years in the Midwest living only 1.5 hours away from each other starting families, birthing babies, doing ministry, making homes, attempting to make heart friends while simultaneously attempting to help one another stay sane. Ironic thing is, there isn't much SANE about us when we get together. The sass, the attitude, the fabulousness, the creativity, the laughter, the heart talks, the sob fests, the "I'm-straight-up-losing-it" moments ... they're insurmountable. I love to DREAM with this chick, and I can't wait to see what God let's us DO together as the years roll by.
Every picture you see of her is the real deal. What I mean is that what you see is what you get. That joy? That smile? That beauty? It is truly all 100% legit because it comes straight from a heart that is in love with her Savior. She knows who she is, because she knows WHOSE she is, and she is planting her feet firmly in that and shining brightly! Katy loves Jesus. Every fiber of her being radiates that. And her heart for Him is a magnet that draws everyone who knows her or reads her to know Him more intimately.
Because Katy is a writer, a lot of people know her. And a lot of people love her.
But I count it an immense honor that my knowing and loving of her is deep. And, it is reciprocated.
Thanks for letting me play dress up this time. ;)
