Birthday bash

What a joy to celebrate Jim’s birthday (again) along with missionary friends Al and Alice. Alice turned 70 just two days before Jim’s birthday, and we finally found a time that the four of us could get together.

We ate at a Georgian restaurant not far from our flat — only two blocks away — so, for us, it was an early night. We’re still waiting to hear that our friends made it home to the other side of Kyiv.

Lord, thank you that you give us these delightful evenings to share special days with special friends. We pray that the four of us will have MANY more years to celebrate together!

And I pray that we will have as much love for life and as much energy as these two when we reach our 70s…what examples of humble servants of the living God.
