But keep the old, one is silver and the other gold. We have some amazing friends. Sometimes I truly marvel at the people God has allowed us to know and love and be loved by. He is kind. And though we are making great friends here in our new home, our old friends are still so precious and dear to us. Maybe even more than when we lived near them. My BFF from way back, is a shining treasure to me...a reminder of God's perfect love for me. She's the one who really introduced me to Christ. And there are my treasures from college and China too. We have some "gold" friends from each stage of life!
And our kids have a few "gold friends" that we still talk about a lot. See that candy jar? It was a gift from some of our china friends when we were leaving. They are in every little street shop in China, filled with lollipops for little ones. The plan was to bring it home and eat the lollipops as a reminder of each other and our time together in China. And we did. The lollipops are gone, but we keep refilling it and remembering! YAY for friends and candy! To the golden friend who gave this to us, do you still have yours????
