we have had both sets of parents, a sister, and now a whole big mess o’ friends come to visit us in the last year. all visits have been a bittersweet joy at the brief reunions and the all-to-soon partings. they are life-giving, encouraging, but the pang of distant friendship is felt all the more when they leave.
steph and i are no strangers to long distance relationships, between ourselves and with friends and family. the miles are many these years. it is an amazing blessing to know people like us enough to fly half way around the world to see us.
and from this most recent visit we get the reflections of our friend jd and his amazing photography. i write little today so you might read his words.
we welcome all who wish to visit us and see the good things our Father is building in dark places.
