Memory Lane

Across the table from me yesterday sat these two beautiful women. (Regrettably, this was the best photo I could get given the lighting situation.) One, 92 years of age, is the mother of this dear junior high friend of mine.  When we moved from Winona Lake over 45 years ago, I left behind several friends I'd made while my father attended Grace Seminary.  Yesterday we were reunited!  These are not only friends, but sisters in Jesus Christ.  What a joy to see their souls prospering in the present and to exchange memories of the past. 

I was on the "inside" of the booth so didn't have a chance to take photos on my phone of the two other friends sitting next to me.  I look forward to receiving some that the kind server took of our whole group on another camera..

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.  For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth.  I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.  3 John 3-4.

Judy summed it up when she said, "What a great time that was! I'm so glad we could get together and catch up. I was thinking today that times like this are a little taste of what heaven will be like. I guess we'll know someday!"

  8. I think this is a perfect picture! I can see the light of God's love in their eyes. Yes, God is preparing us for a future glory that far outweighs our all. Every now and again, we catch a glimpse. A grateful, good hurt indeed. Keeps me hungering, sister, for more of the same.

    Blessings and peace to you this week~elaine
