~Lunch with a friend~

This afternoon I had lunch with a friend of mine from our church. She served egg salad with crouissant rolls, grapes, and Sun Chips. Yummy! After lunch, I helped her fold, stuff, and stamp their prayer letter (they are missionaries with a mission board which builds churches in America). We had a nice time together!

I'd like to say how special it is to have friends outside of your age bracket. When you are in Kindergarten, you think that the only friends you can have have to be your exact age. But as an adult, it is wise to have friends of all ages! My friend is my mom's age, but we truly enjoy spending time together.

If you are so blessed as to have Titus 2 women in your church, get to know them! Allow them to be in your circle of friends!

It sounds like you had a lovely day. Isn't fellowship with a dear friend one of God's greatest gifts?

And I completely agree with you about seeking friends outside of your own peer group. I've always been one to do this.--I guess because we don't have children and for so long most ladies my age are busy with their children. I very much enjoy spending time with older, Titus 2 women. (o:

I've always thought it's a real shame to be age-limited in one's choice of friends. I've had several good friends who are the same age as my parents - and, now I am getting middle-aged, I find that I also have young friends. Age is meaningless where friendship is concerned.

Hi Tammy,

I'm glad you had a nice time.

I wholeheartedly agree with you about expanding outside our age bracked for friends. All of my life, I've had friends of varying ages and really enjoyed those friendships. People are so much more that their age!

As I am growing older, I find that I don't even notice the age gap between me and my sisters in Christ. It's wonderful!

Glad you had a great day!

Sounds like a sweet time of fellowship....we were Blessed this year to have some missionaries from Cornerstone Baptist Builders do work at our church...WE LOVED these people....their testimony and work ethic was such a Godly example...my dh worked quite a bit with them and was so encouraged and blessed.
