The names listed above may not mean anything to you, but they mean the world to me. Something drew Chris and me to them and them to us before we ever knew what it was. Call it a kindred spirit or divine flow. Call it whatever you want. It was just there. The day before Chris’ confession of pornography addiction and adultery, Miss Beth, as many of us affectionately call her, stopped by my house with some flowers. We chatted briefly. She is one of those women who is so in tune with the Spirit of God. When she says something, I listen. I have never EVER heard her speak negatively about someone or share gossip. And trust me, I KNOW she has plenty to share! But, she doesn’t. She holds each and every confession and fragile heart in her very safe hands. She is the real deal. A woman of utmost integrity and honor. A mother to two, a grandmother to three, the wife of one…she is cherished. She is my girl. Jim, or Jimmy K, is pretty much up there on my list of the greatest men in the world. He literally oozes wisdom. I remember sitting in his presence hour after hour gleaning insight and just experiencing peace. He has such a calming presence. When we were faced with a stressful situation, there was no visible fretting on his part. A simple, “Well, I tell you what we’re gonna do” response that was exactly what we needed. Those who know him see the wealth in him. He’s tried and true. This amazing couple walked us through the most devastating time in our lives but also the most healing time. They invited us into their home on a weekly basis…shared their children with us…celebrated their holidays with us…prayed for and with us…protected us…never gave up on us…always believed in us. Always. When I talk about Jim and Beth in this way I cannot help but be overcome with emotion. My heart is full of gratitude and my eyes are wet with tears. I wrote a chapter in my book about them and could say a million thank you’s to them and it wouldn’t be enough. Here’s #243… Thank you, Jim and Beth. My heart adores you. Is there someone you need to thank?
