And that is what we are!”
1 John 3:1
On the guest list were our family members and Jim’s dearest friends. Some of these friendships have spanned up to 20 years. A few of these friendships have just developed over the last few years. One friend and his wife have just started to become good friends, and I knew the Lord wanted me to invite them. (I will be posting on this at a later date, called “The Invitation”.) Jim and his cousin, John, have been friends their whole lives. Only a few people could not attend the party, but they were with us in heart.
Jim was indeed surprised. That’s an understatement. After the initial shock, he joyfully got in the groove and began enjoying and taking in the evening set aside for him.
1 John 4:16: “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.”
