A day with sweet friends

Christian and Abby came to play yesterday while their mom was resting. I have to tell you, their presence in our home was such a blessing. And I am not just saying that. It was such a delight to me to listen to the sweet chatter of children who know how to play without fighting over every little thing.

"How about we play market together? Would that be a good idea?"

"Sure! That sounds like a GREAT idea! You be the shopper, and I'll be the cashier!"


So sweet. A tribute to their dear parents who, even though they are very sick, are faithfully training their children in the ways of the Lord. We are very blessed to have friends like them. The kids had such a good time together yesterday, and I am so glad they came!

Abby sure does look like her mom. That's a cute picture of Ethan and her sitting together. It's always encouraging when children play well together - then they will probably get along with others when they are adults. And that is a good thing! Love you all, Mom

Friends are such a blessing from the Lord, aren't they? The Lord is so gracious in giving us wonderful friends to spend time and fellowship with. What a great redeemer we have and can call our Savior! Hopefully, i'll get to see while you are you in town for a couple of town!
