Wonderful Fellowship!

I was so blessed to spend 1 1/2 hours on the phone with a very dear friend, mentor, and brother in Christ.  He and his wife are such a blessing to us!  B isn't a phone person, so we email, but J and I can, and do, talk at length. I am reminded of Paul's longing to see his Christian friends, " I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong—that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith."  (Romans 1:11-12)  As we closed in prayer, my arms ached to hold my friends again, to see them smile, to hear them laugh.

The Lord brings people into our lives for a reason or sometimes for a season.  J & B are lifelong (nearly 20 years now), and I praise God for them.  They are a true brother and sister in Christ.
