Make new friends, but keep the old

I need a better camera, but you get the point. The extra kids here playing with my kids are some old friends of ours. They lived across the street from us when we were all stationed in FL together. Until we moved to CA, the kids had not seen each other since summer of 2007. A couple years is not a big deal for adults, but kids take it differently. My little man was so young that he did not have memories of playing with H & J.

So we had a sleepover last night and everyone had a blast. This morning we had breakfast, some TV, sprinkler fun, Wii action, and a trip to the park. How awesome is it that we have built in friends that we already love and cherish?

Want to know something awesome, me and my next door neighbor were the first people to ever invite these kids and their mama to church. They eventually came and their mom, K, invited Jesus into her heart. Thank you GOD! Now these kids have had the opportunity to go to church, hear the word, and become apart of Awanas. All because God planted us across the street from each other.

That is way cool! Praise God. I love hearing stories about how God uses us where we are. Good stuff.
