My daughter, Diona, has asked me to post pictures of their trip to Fayetteville in January. The photos are of “the babies”. Diona and her friend since 4th grade, Heidi, have both had babies (2007). At the time these photos were taken in January Summitt was 8 months old and Blake (Diona’s) was 4 months old.
Michael W. Smith said it best in this old song: “Friends are friends forever, if the Lord is the Lord of themAnd a friend will not say never, cause the welcome will not endThough it’s hard to let you goIn the Father’s hands I knowThat a lifetime’s not too long… to live as friends.”
What can I say about friends? Real ones stick with you. Demographics don’t matter. Economics don’t matter. Social standing doesn’t matter. I feel most fortunate that I have had the pleasure of having a few good REAL friends. Thank you, Lord.
