Something that is precious to us, is the visitors we have on a regular basis. A few years ago, Youth group was held at our home on Wednesdays. But since the girls are older and in college, now we have College Group in our home on Tuesdays. And then, there are Friday nights, when we have various guests for Friday Night at the Movies, along with Pizza.
On Wednesday nights we have a ladies prayer meeting and on Saturday evenings we have a group meeting with friends.
Sunday is always a surprise. Today it was an imprompu group of college kids and friends for an after church swim at the lake, and then people playing spades and backgammon. We taught a few people the ins and outs of backgammon tonight. That along with Pizza; we had a great night.
I love it that the young people who were once in high school, now come over as young adults. I love it that they are a great group of young adults who love Jesus and love spending time together.
Several years ago, when the girls were young, we decided to change churches to make sure the church we went to was close by so the girls' friends would be close by. This is precisely what has happened.
I love it that the girls have a large friend group and that they are all very close. What a blessing it is to have friends.
"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"
“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
