i've blogged about jeff a number of times. he and i have been friends for a hundred million years... well since 1985! back when ronald reagan was president, "back to the future" hit the big screen, and every little girl wanted a cabbage patch doll. when tears for fears was singing "shout," madonna was singing "crazy for you", and everyone was singing "we are the world." yep, jeff and i have been friends for. ev. er!
25 years (gulp)!
jeff and i had similar upbringings. both our stories could have played out tragically, but God rescued each of us, and lead us into victory.
over the years i have watched jeff overcome, seen him lavish love on his wife and boys, and have taken notes from him on how to be intentional in my walk with God. seeing him live his life in faith thrills me to no end!
it has been a gift to grow up with jeff, but it has been a greater gift to grow up in Christ alongside him.
we celebrated jeff's birthday with a ride in his 1964 convertible corvair!
next time i will use duct tape to secure my scarf.
after i tamed my hair, we enjoyed a delicious italian dinner together. after dinner jeff was
bit of an obsession with old cars).
eventually the gang pried me away from ginger, and we went geocaching (another first for me)!
