First of all, thanks so much to TCIE and JBTC for organizing prayer buddies this year for Advent. I needed it a lot.
To my prayer buddy that I'm praying for: Thanks for letting me be a part of your journey. I remember you morning and night with morning and evening prayer, and pray that this has been a blessed Advent to you. It has been so wonderful to have the opportunity to pray for someone else and has helped me to keep my mind off myself quite as much.
To my prayer buddy that's praying for me: Thank you so much! It really means a lot to me to know that someone out there is praying for me. An intention of mine for this week is for not just surviving the holidays, but to truly be able to rejoice. I'm really trying to be in that frame of mind, but I'm apprehensive because this is the first Christmas away from my family and it's been a pretty intense fall with struggling with the single thing.
To everyone else: I'm still praying for you, too! I really appreciate this experience because it has made it a lot easier to remember all the people that need prayer.
