Do you have a sister or wish you had a sister?

I have three (and one lucky brother). Growing up was difficult at times just being girls. Competition, insecurity, fighting and arguing about who would do the dishes or “who took my makeup?” Sound familiar?

I also had a twin sister which doubled the intensity – good and bad (remember the “doublemint twins”?)

Other women I have been around said that their sister was their best friend and they never argued. I think that is awesome as well. Bonding, either way to a sister in our biological families or sisters who are our best friends at work or church, can be an inspiring relationship.

Today as I walk out my latter years, I am grateful for my sisters and grateful for the many girlfriends that have helped me be the woman God always wanted me to be. We can really talk deep and we also can experience belly laughs just being ourselves. What freedom.

Today I had an experience meeting new women, seeing old friends, and cherishing the fact that God loves me so much that He would put such beautiful women in my life, even if it’s for a short season. Sure some of my insecurities creep up, some of that comparison goes on but “for such a time as this”, I can really experience that sisterly love. I’d love to hear about your sisters.

    I just got a call from my sister today who lives in Louisiana. She called with a scripture to bring me encouragement. Isaiah 54:10 and it was "for such a time as this". Sisters are a blessing, and although I have had my own insecurities while at times in my sisters shadow, I am now confident in who I am in Christ and oh so thankful for the blessing he has given me in my sister.
