"I Didn't Find My Friends, The Good God Gave Them To Me" Ralph Waldo Emerson

The kiddos and I spent the day with the Hayes family- Jeff, Kelly, Simon, and Elliott.

Jeff and I have been friends since Jr. high (he had a crush on me. I'm sure it was the feathered hair, pegged pants, and Keds that wooed his little boy heart).
I have enjoyed how our friendship has changed over these 20 years (wow!). We were new Christians together, both from broken homes, both in need of a Father. We both wanted more, and fixed our eyes on Jesus, and ran for more. What a delight it is to see the "more." To see him with a wife he adores (Kelly Rocks!), to watch him play with, and love on his children, to see a man faithful to God. He is all the Jeff I hoped he would be.
