Making Memories

Grace Gift
Good Food, Good Friends, Good Fellowship

We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 1:2-3

I can’t think of anything I like better than sitting around a campfire with people I love. So I was thrilled last night as we went to our very first campfire of Autumn with John and Teresa and Terrie and Rick.
I love that campfires welcome you just the way you are, clad in grubby clothes, hair wild from the wind and  no make-up to be seen. None of that matters. Just pull up a log, sit yourself down, and be enveloped in the coziness of wood-smoke, crackling flames, and good company.
Not texting, not tweeting, not updating our Facebook statuses; talking. Telling stories, rehashing memories, laughing. A campfire  tightens bonds.

Dreamily mesmerized by the dancing flames, feeling like the luckiest people on the planet.
Talking about our Jesus.............

Roasting hot dogs................. 

 roasting marshmallows...................

For some, this was their first time at making s'mores........
Watching the International Space Station flying overhead......
Hey, John, all the times I've posted to you about the times the ISS will fly over our homes.... tonight, we got to actually watch it together. Thank You, Lord for good food, good friends and good fellowship.

The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you

and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26
