Our good friends Julie and Chase proved their friendship to us by driving over 13 hours to come and visit us for about a week. It was a great time: we got our game fix for a while (Settlers any one??), went down to the beach in Destin for a day and a half, and I even planted some herbs to try and redeem my previous lack of success in the green thumb department.
It is such a blessing to have such good friends. It was another reminder to me about how important the body of Christ is for encouragement in running the race of life.
Here are some pictures from our fun times:
