Turning Melody into Harmony
I spent the first weekend of the month in North Carolina visiting with these ladies. Meet two of my good buds, Rhonda (center) and Sandi (right).
A more unlikely threesome, you may never find. Which always makes us smile, shake our heads and give each other a hug when we think about it. These unlikeliest of friendships often give the most joy because you're simply in awe of how God orchestrates things.
Rhonda holds 2 degrees in 2 very technical and challenging fields. She is a professional. She is organized. She is on time. She is prepared. She has a plan. She's done her research. She runs the show.
The. Girl. Gets. Things. Done.
I'm a little more, shall we say, flighty.
On first glance, ten years ago, I would never have put the two of us together.
Sandi holds post-graduate degrees and several book titles with her name under them. She is a ministry leader and public speaker and a visionary. Sandi is a literary thinker. She can run with the big dogs of philosophy and culture.
The. Girl. Knows. How. To. Think.I'm a little more, shall we say, simple.
On first glance, eight years ago, I would never have put the two of us together.
Now, I look at this photo taken 4 weeks ago, smile, and shake my head. This 2X3 inch photo represents Christ's ability to take three melodies from three very different lives and blend them together into a charming three-part harmony. The very things about these two women that once made me think, "It's just not possible," "Never in a million years," and sometimes even, "Run for the hills!" are the very things that make our friendship work so well.
I have always enjoyed listening to a well-toned harmony. A well-toned, supernatural harmony is icing on the cake.
P.S. These are the faces of SoulPerSuit.
P.P.S. Sandi almost missed her flight for this get-together weekend. My car broke down on the way there. Rhonda nearly had a collision on the way to pick Sandi up at the airport. Leatherwing said that since we'd all defied death to be together that weekend, that something of COSMIC significance was going to happen while we were together. He just knew it.
Well, something of cosmic significance did happen that weekend.
This is the first picture we've taken of all three of us together.
(And my computer wouldn't give it up either! We almost had one less computer in this house.)
