My Jonathans


I am blessed to have two Jonathans in my life. They have been witnesses to me for over twenty years. With every day that passes I realize more and more how incredibly lucky I am to have them. Elizabeth, who I have known since I was five, is probably one of the most generous people you will ever meet. She would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it and not think twice about it. She has taught me to be grateful for every gift life has to give from food to eat to time with family. She has stood by me for every major moment in life. At the same time, she has given me room to make my own mistakes. Even when I make really bad decisions she loves me anyway. She has had amazing patience to put up with some of the stupid things I have done. Her gracious heart is always there willing to forgive me even if I don’t deserve it. Emily, who I have known since I was eight, is quite different. She is a lively spirit, an encourager. Although she is a year younger than me, her wisdom seems to out succeed mine. She is very in tune with God’s desires for us. In every situation, she always points back to the Lord’s desires. Both of these amazing women have been an unbelievable blessing in my life. I don’t know where I would be today without them. They have been examples of faithfulness to the Lord who have held me accountable to God’s truth time and time again. They are my Jonathans. My prayer is that some day I too can be like Jonathan…a loyal follower to the Lord in every word and deed.
