Memory Lane, Moving Forward

A story of three strangers who met a long time ago…

Friends-

It’s been awhile since I’ve written so I wanted to share with you some of my birthday experiences. I’m happy to share that I celebrated my birthday on July 30th! My first “shout out” goes to God! God is so good, God is always GOOD! I am so blessed to have so many loving and caring individuals in my life and I thank each one for making this year’s birthday celebration so memorable and fun!

First off, I had dinner with several friends from my church at one of my favorite restaurants. We shared in a great meal and some awesome cheesecake (birthday cake). Then, I was able to attend a minor league baseball game and pre-game party with all you could eat/drink for free! All with a great group of people who work on keeping the environment safe for everyone along with family and close friends. And today, I traveled to the Chicago area to visit two very special people in my life. I’ve known these individuals for more than three decades and I just love them! Several years have passed since we’ve seen one another face to face but they have always remained in my heart. We met the first year I started college, and well I guess one could say they rest is history. But, it’s more than that! I’ve probably never adequately or appropriately told them just how thankful I am to be friends with them! And, do you know what the best part of our friendship is…truth! I can say that now, after all these years and it’s the foundation of our friendship, they have never had any pretenses of who they are or who I am. I love that! They are very near the top of the list of people I’ve known the longest in my life and with whom I completely trust. Looking back I can now see the artistry of God working in our lives, God working through the years and even today with bringing us together. My heart is filled with happiness!

Memory Lane, Moving Forward
A story of three strangers who met a long time ago…
As the sea washes the shore line sand clean with its ebb and flow
So did the decades of time and space evaporate when we met again face to face
Friendship never lost through the years only paused from time to time
Life, kids, jobs, school, college, travel, weddings, family, just things and stuff
Never forgotten, always close at heart, closer still in prayers
Friends connected at the heart are never far away
Conversations, experiences, sharing laughs things that time doesn’t change 
Closeness and connectivity are not bound by proximity, matters of the heart are limitless 
Friendship as full and fresh as the day it started so many years ago a blessing then, a bigger blessing now 
Memories come flooding back and new ones made they all warm the heart
Looking back it seems so long and short like a blink of the eye
Meeting you, becoming friends has forever changed my life, our lives will continue to change and grow through the years, our friendship is a priceless treasure that only grows in value as the years pass by.

As the sea washes the shore line sand clean with its ebb and flow

So did the decades of time and space evaporate when we met again face to face

Friendship never lost through the years only paused from time to time

Life, kids, jobs, school, college, travel, weddings, family, just things and stuff

Never forgotten, always close at heart, closer still in prayers

Friends connected at the heart are never far away

Conversations, experiences, sharing laughs things that time doesn’t change

Closeness and connectivity are not bound by proximity matters of the heart are limitless

Friendship as full and fresh as the day it started so many years ago a blessing then, a bigger blessing now

Memories come flooding back and new ones made they all warm the heart

Looking back it seems so long and short like a blink of the eye

Meeting you, becoming friends has forever changed my life, our lives will continue to change and grow through the years, our friendship is a priceless treasure that only grows in value as the years pass by.
