Our dear friend Claire visited St. Louis last weekend from Seattle. It is always good to catch up with her through lots of short but meaningful chats. She mostly came to be with Vicki, as they have celebrated their birthdays together for 10 years in a row! This year, we all got to celebrate at the Jensen's during their usual Sunday night scones.
We continued the Meeks family tradition and danced our hearts out to the Beatles 'Birthday Song' on The White Album.
After the kids headed upstairs for a movie, the rest of us enjoyed singing worship songs together like we used to in the old days at Green Lake Pres.
Eli helped dada with keeping the rhythm.
On Easter of 2003, I had only met most of these people (besides the Jensens). It was a beautiful thing to worship with them while thinking back to that time in my life. I've been following the Lord now for almost 7 years and that night was a beautiful reminder of His faithfulness to me through it all.
