Sweet Fellowship

This weekend, two of my very good friends and Sisters in Christ came to visit. The Lord was so gracious to us through the weekend. We enjoyed many hours of great fellowship together. On Sunday evening we had a wonderful time at our house in fellowship and celebrating Michelle's birthday. The evening was filled with laughing, singing, and talking about things of the Lord. It was such a wonderful way to end a great weekend and start a new week.

I'm so thankful that the Lord burdened Elizabeth and Karla to make the trip up here and that He provided the way. It was sad to have them leave Monday morning, but I spent the day (and still today) reminiscing about the great weekend. It also made me anxious for the time when we will all be together forever, bowing at the feet of Our Lord and singing "Worthy art Thou." Until that glorious time, I'm just so thankful for the bonds of love and that bind such hearts together, no matter the distance.

Here's a picture of the ladies from Sunday evening.

Yiipppeee! I had such a wonderful time, and I thank you again for the birthday fun. I too keep thinking back to the weekend, and I am thankful to God that we were able to be together. What a wonderful gift it is to have the blessing of friends to encourage us, pray for us, weep with us, and worship with us in this world. Thank you Elizabeth and Karla. We started missing you the moment you left... and we continue to miss you.

{well}..."And I'll sing Hallelujah and you'll sing Hallelujah, and we'll all sing Hallelujah when we arrive at home!"

I miss you all too, but Lydia is quite correct in that one day, there will be no more missing.

Friendship and fellowship of the saints is most delightful!
