Making Friends



It's always a little scary when you move to a new part of the country. It's also a bit daunting trying to figure out how to meet new people and make new friends, even when you are 37 years old.

Fortunately, in this day and age, Facebook has come to the rescue. I know the date stamp says January, but actually this picture was taken over Memorial Day. It was a great day, Chris even got to make a new friend, Kirk Kraft. They are both equally goofy and had a good time getting to know each other.

We've been very fortunate that because of church family who lived in Everett previously and because of friends who are friends with others on Facebook we got to make some friends before moving. It's amazing how much easier that made life and the transition. It's still not always easy, but it isn't as tough as it could have been.

Dear Lord,
Thank you for paving a way for us to make new friends and embrace new ones into our family. Thank you for blessing us with good friends and helping us find a loving church family. Thank you for always meeting our needs when we need them, even if we don't always understand that at the time. Thank you for always having our best interests at heart and taking such good care of us. Help us to remember to be thankful and help us to remember we need to praise you.
Amen.

Have a good week.
Love in Christ,
Maureen
