Happy Birthday Sue!!!

My BFF turns 27 today.

I'm not sure where I would be without her friendship today. For the past 9 years she has been such an amazing part of my life. She has laughed with me, cried with me, carried me, and rejoiced with me. She is one of the biggest reason I believe that God puts certain people in our lives at the most perfect times. We can sit in a room together without even talking and feel completely comfortable. I can have and idea about a dance and she already know what I'm thinking. She can spend months in another country then come back and catch up like no time has passed between us.

Watermark has a song called "More Than You'll Ever Know." Every time I hear that song I think of her and how a true friend should make you feel. I thank God for this friendship that I have treasured so dearly! My heart was to change the words to this song to make it sum up our friendship! But as I sat here trying to change these already most perfect words; that make me already think of my BFF I couldn't change them. This is who she is to me. This is what our friendship. Why would I change a single word?

So my dear BFF, I'm sorry that I wasn't more unique; but these words are truly how I feel about you and our friendship! I wouldn’t change a moment with you! I hope this year will be even better than the last! You are a blessing – More Than You’ll Ever Know…

Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it's okay to cry with you
Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I've been near God
And that's the way it ought to be...

'Cause you've been more than a friend to me
You fight off my enemies
'Cause you've spoken the Truth over my life
And you'll never know what it means to me
Just to know you've been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah

You had faith, when I had none
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn't think I could find the strength to sing
And all the while I'm hoping that I'll
Do the kind of praying for you that you've done for me
And that's the way it ought to be...
You have carried me
You have taken upon a burden that wasn't your own
And may the blessing return to you
A hundredfold, oh yeah...
A hundredfold, oh yeah...

'Cause you've been more than a friend to me
You fight off my enemies
'Cause you've spoken the Truth over my life
And you'll never know what it means to me
Just to know you've been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah


I love you!! I hope you have a fantastic birthday!
