If you were young like we were when we were when we got married 15 years ago (tomorrow), you remember what it was like to have lots and lots of friends. College friends, church friends, high school friends, siblings, etc. We had a very large wedding party. I was looking at this photo today and wondering about these friends. Four of them I have hardly spoken to since the wedding. Our lives separated. We took our own unique paths. Life was good with them for a while. I loved them dearly.
Here’s the breakdown of everyone else:
1 Prison inmate serving a 15 year sentence
1 English as a Second Language Teacher
1 Real Estate Genius
1 IT professional at GCC
1 Owner of a wonderful scrapbook store
1 Pastors wife (other than me)
1 Early Childhood Education expert
It’s amazing to see where God has taken these individuals and their families. Some chose to keep following Jesus, some didn’t. Some followed Him to the Ends of the Earth. Some serve Him by unique means in their homes and jobs. I am so proud to have known and loved these friends.
