We are blessed beyond measure with a kind-hearted, Jesus-loving group of friends in our Life Group at Long Hollow. We’ve been friends with some of them for nearly a decade, and they’ve walked with us through college, engagement, marriage, deployments, illness, highs, and lows. They always point us to The Lord through sound doctrine and loving kindness. But, in addition to all of those things, none of us take ourselves too seriously.
These friends know how to laugh, and that adds joy to our days and refreshment to our bones. I think this “Speak Out” picture may be a better representation of us than our normal grins.
A friend for seasons of hardship, of joy, of love, and of laughter is a gift.
