Whatever is lovely…

Some of us have been friends for more than 30 years.


Through these years, we’ve walked through joy and sorrow, peace and anguish. Weddings, births, and deaths. Misunderstandings, impatience, and ugly attitudes. Fractured hearts and fractured minds, restoration and renewal.

We’ve spoken words of affirmation and acceptance, and we’ve encouraged one another to keep on keeping on, knowing that Christ will complete the good work he began in us, attempting to love one another as He loves us.

So we keep showing up, rejoicing in the gift of friendship, and like today, celebrating the birthday of a treasured friend.


Lovely? Yes indeed!
