Having a Few Friends Over

Friday night turned into a night of fellowhip for the Justus kids.  Virginia had planned to go skating with her friend Gideon; that didn't quite pan out as the rink had changed its hours (an unannounced change too, may I add). Virginia, Gideon and Gideon's mom went to McDonald's then came back to our house. We had a wonderful visit. Gideon's younger brother, Gray, was with them as well. Michael came home from the college with the boys, and JT and JM had a great time visiting with Gray. Then, Gray's dad came over on his way home from the College!

Eventually, Virginia went to Gideon's house with her parents for supper, and Gray stayed here with the boys for supper.  There's a pretty big age difference between Gray and the Justus boys, but that didn't stop them from having a great time. Before supper, they played games at the table; after supper, they played in the living room and watched some of their Hanna Barbera classic cartoons.

I enjoyed talking to Gideon and Gray's mom, Morgan. We share many of the same views about what our children should read and watch and so forth.  I am really grateful for their friendship and presence in our lives!


  1. Sounds like God orchestrated a wonderful fellowship for all of you!

  2. Lynda, that is such a good way to describe what happened. Everyone had such a great time. Our weather here has been pretty wet and cold (no complaints here) and all of us being together inside with a a hot meal and warm friendship was great!
