We spent last evening with some friends. One of them is a paraplegic. He was shot in the back when he was about 26 years old. He’s had a really hard life but manages to have a smile on his face when we visit him and his wife.
Today we were invited for brunch at another friends home. Such wonderful food from these wonderful Lebanese friends.Â They looked tired today and the wife told me “we are getting old.”Â They are 73 years old now.
I used to think that our friends were mainly “older” but as I ponder it more, they are not much older than us ~ about 10 years.
Looks like I’ll be preaching the sermon this week at church but I haven’t yet picked a topic although the word “instruments” keeps popping up in my heard.Â Hmm …
Today I’ve been feeling dizzy but not enough to keep me down.Â Just enough for me to “feel it.”
And then I heard from a friend in Michigan today.Â It was so nice of him to call.Â He’s going to school to become a Pastor which will be a great investment of his time ~ and a great sacrifice.Â I hope I can make it to his wedding when he sets the date.Â I’m so thankful he has found a lifetime friend.
God is good.
