Never have I ever met someone like Pamela. No surprise as to why we met, God clearly wanted me to take notes. This girl has a heart of courage, wisdom, love and kindness. 1Corinthians 13 talks about what Love is but I think it describes my girl to the T. She is patient, she is kind, she does not envy, she does not boast, she is not proud, she does not dishonor others, she is not self-seeking, she is most definitely not easily angered, and she does not keep record of wrongs. She delights in the truth and not in evil, she protects, trusts and can be trusted, always hopes and always perseveres.
Pamela came into my life almost hidden; like a ninja looking for his next kill (LOL). We didn't know how to approach each other because well, she is Betty's best friend. That Betty, the "that girl over there is my ex" Betty. Can you see Pamela's dilema? At the time, Betty and I were not friends and Pamela and I shared a stage every Sunday for worship. We talked here and there but an actual relationship didn't exist for a while after. I'm absolutely sure she prayed for God to reveal the meaning of all of this because it's very much like her to do so. The circumstances were all very weird and awkward for everyone involved, but here we were, 3 soon to be traveling buddies but for now individuals letting God lead them.
Pamela became the mediator between me and Betty. She would talk to us individually, hung out with us individually and shared her life with us individually. Me and Betty were not comfortable hanging out together just yet and Pamela literally was in the middle of all the unmentioned tension. This girl is gold! As much as Betty wanted to know the dirt about me and I wanted to know about her, Pamela stayed grounded and showed us this is NOT what she was here for. She was a true friend to us back then and will always be. She showed her true colors and character when things were questionable and this is nothing short of admirable.
Pamela Lira is:
Pam is my road to follow. She has been paving the way for many years and now I've come to walk down the road. She is someone I look up to, although she is younger. She has many qualities that I adore and she is absolutely stunning!
Dear Future Husband, she is the sister I never thought I needed. She will most definitely be at our wedding and one of the bridesmaids. She will probably babysit our child almost immediately. She will absolutely have a key to our home so just like with Betty, stay dressed. Need any advice on what to gift me? Ask her. Need any advice about me in general? Ask her. Need to surprise me? Pam is your girl. There's nothing Pam wouldn't do for her friends and I'm glad I'm not the exception.
