Before I could swing the bathroom door open, the phone range back! Knowing it was my scheduled phone call, I expectantly answered in my Tennessee dialect. "Well, I can certainly tell that I am speaking with someone from the south," said the sweet-sounding voice on the other end! And from there, the journey with Rhonda Quaney begins.
You see, Rhonda and I have never met. Our first phone conversation EVER was just this week. With nothing more in common than the tie that binds us to Jesus, Rhonda and I began a partnership journey of encouragement for women everywhere. We ended the call by praying with and for one another, and I felt in my spirit that my life as a woman of God would never be the same.
Both chosen to represent inCourage as a community inCourager (blogger, writer, supporter, leader) we were unlikely comrades connected by only thing we have in common - the love of Jesus!
Immediately, we felt a connection in our kindred spirits and we are off on a new road - a road less traveled - two women from different situations, different backgrounds, different experiences, different wounds and different joys; but together wielding over 100 years of experience in navigating this stormy journey called life. One from Nebraska, one from Tennessee - more than 930 miles and fifteen hours by car span the distance between us. Held together by the deep desire to encourage the hearts of women everywhere.
So.....we are off! Working on our description of our blog/website and FB page. Praying for each other and our respective families. Asking God to touch and bless the life of someone we don't even know - but have entered into a partnership with that is sure to bring glory to our Father in Heaven.
Displays of His Splendor. Yup. That pretty much sums up Rhonda and Tracy. And I, for one, look forward to this new bend in the journey called life! Thank you Lord!
Do not lose your courage, then, because it brings with it a great reward. You need to be patient, in order to do the will of God and receive what he promises. Hebrews 10:35
