Recently I was invited to join a small group of childhood friends to gather for lunch. What a treat! It was a delicious meal and a beautiful day, but the best part, of course, was the time we had together as we celebrated so very many years of friendship.
We all went to church together growing up, and so along with sharing those special, longstanding relationships, we also share a love of God and trust in Him that has carried each of us through various hardships that have shown up as we have lived our lives.
We all said it was the best time and we must do it again soon. I hope we will!
Since we are living at the lake these days, my trip to get to the other side of Nashville was a long one. And of course, it was both to… and from. Even so, the hours spent in the car were worth it to have this refreshing time with wonderful friends.
But I was SO tired when I got back home!
Because of traffic – or lack of it, I was able to make a couple of pictures of my route. I had quite a change of scenery as I traveled from one place to another:
Ahhhh…. the green, green grass of home!
...a sweet friendship refreshes the soul. Proverbs 27:9
Love these words “rolling slow in the country
Ahhhh…. the green, green grass of home!”
Nothing better than spending time with childhood friends.
Sounds like a wonderful visit!
And I’ll take that green, green grass in the country over Nashville traffic any day of the week! Sounds like a wonderful time with friends.
It’s nifty how those two photographs serve as contrasting frames for the reunion experience.
