Not long after becoming a mother of a boy I started praying for the house on my street that was for sale to have a family move in with a boy my son’s age.
Since Peter was in my womb, I have been praying for his best friend. I’ve always felt he was like King David in the Bible, who had a life changing friend, Jonathan. So I prayed for Peter’s Jonathan before I even knew Peter.
My prayers were answered when we had neighbors move in to a different house. They are wildly gifted with hospitality. Their children are the same ages as mine. They are smart and fun and always up for a good time. They are a gift to our family.
I’ll call this years of prayers getting answered in generous ways because it wasn’t just my children that were gifted fantastic neighbors. It was I that scored great friends too.
