and a brother is born for adversity. " - Proverbs 17:17
I miss my brothers.
It was wonderful to see all of them turn up for dinner tonight, some of whom I haven't seen in months and years.
One came with a heavy burden in his heart to share, one came with a heartfelt card and the Brian Littrell album. Another came with a handmade present, another came with an early birthday gift. Two came despite the rain and their sickness. Yet another came just because he wanted to see me.
I am, to say the least, touched by their gesture of love, kindness and concern. Of their sharing memories with me, of their appreciation of who I was to them, of their unwavering faith, patient support and insistent truth.
People come, people go and people change. But thank you Ben, Eugene, Josh, Kaf, Keith, Loy and Phil for reminding me this season that I am loved and remembered.
