Girls and Boys

I sat in the backyard Tuesday, watching kids play. And it struck me that even though they are all friends, they are so vastly different from one another.

The girls, well they will be girls... and girly ones at that!

And the boys? Well, they will be boys!
They spent their time making faces, climbing the slide and sliding backwards.
Calling eachother *names* and using baseball bats and t-ball stands as swords. I serisouly do NOT understand these little boys!!
Yet they are friends, and incredibly protective of their siblings.

I love watching them grow and their personalities shine. God has made them each such indiviaduals yet there are enough similarities that they bond and become friends. It is so cool to watch.

I pray for good friends in the lives of these kids. Friends that will hold them up when they stumble, friends that will pray for them and show them the way, friends they are *safe* with. Friends that are friends no matter what the world tells them is cool or popular or *right*.
