...The Other Is Gold

     Once upon a time, in a land very much like your own, five little girls were born. Each one had their own unique personality, and life. Their names were Courtney, Abbey, Bree, Hannah, and Lauren. They were all born within a year of each other, and went through life together. As in any little girl friendship, there were times of intense conflict. However, as time moved on and took each girl in a different direction, they all remained faithful friends.
     These little girls were blessed with the most wonderful mothers. Growing up, many of them heard the saying, "Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver, and the other is gold". Golden friendship is what these girlys had.
     Years past, and little girls became young ladies. Each one was on fire for Jesus, and the Father was actively moving in their lives. They are now all in different stages of life. One is married and getting ready to have a bebe, one is engaged and getting married in July, one is starting a relationship and starting school, the other is in nursing school and serving in Dayton, and I am leaving for Thailand in 16 short days.
     Before I left and there was a bebe added to the mix we decided to take a trip together. We all loaded up in a little car and drove 8.5 hours to the upper peninsula of Michigan. Laughter eating, relaxing worship, more laughter, and heart sharing was the agenda for 4.5 days we were gone. It was wonderful to reconnect and have time to step away from busy life to catch up.

We were loaded down!! Court did a fantastic job of making it all fit in the trunk.

A long but beautiful drive

Sunset = Breathtaking 

We made it to our cute little cabin in the woods

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. 
~Matthew 5:14-16

A gorgeous part of the world

Our most fantastic transportation
