When friends come to visit.
I think it was July 17, 2003 when Toni from England left his first comment on this here blog. Over these eleven years we've built sort of a friendship that can pick up where we last left off, even when we don't see one another for a bunch of years.
If you search for the word "Toni" in the search box here, you'll see that they have found a place in our hearts and you'll also see that life hasn't been particularly easy on them.
But they've been to visit this week and it's been good to spend some time together. Really good.
So we share some stories and memories and prayers and part ways again until some time down the road.
It's a good grace to us, these times.
They will be missed. Again.
