Once again we have experienced the breaking of the fellowship. 

The Thanksgiving Visit – The Grand Highlight of the year – has been ended.  All the times past of counting down days and preparing the house and the feast with the most satisfying of anticipations have begun to fade away as mere shadows in the light of Eternity.  The selfishness of me!  Of our family!  To want the beloved Clarks and John Y. to ourselves all the year long!  {Is my way with words unnervingly odd?  I do not mean it to be, really – I do not.}

 

On a more practical method of conveying the joyous simplicity of spending time with friends that are kindred spirits, feel free to watch this little video of Beth (age 2 – wearing the cream colored dress) and Jenny (age 1 1/2) playing with their dolls and bestowing affection upon the charmingly oblivious Ben (5 months).  They had a splendid time.

   

 

 

The visit began with a cookout with the Abbotts and the Maltasses – other great friends of ours.  The Abbotts brought Belle (the cat we gave them this summer) along to have a reunion with her feline family.  She appeared to realize that she doesn’t have many kindred spirits among her own cat relatives.  She would much rather relax in a pleasant house than frolic in the yard fighting for food scraps and scrambling up trees.

 

Even the youngest children became interested while Dr. Y led a brilliantly thoughtful Bible study this morning.  We were only briefly interrupted (to our appropriate astonishment) by a Jehovah’s Witness knocking on the front door.  

 

A season of memories, indeed.  I would write more, but I might get carried away in details….and I really need to go through some more photos and videos.  I also need to let my siblings and friends have something to write about.

 

Farewell…

 

PRAYERS FOR THE NATION AND THE WORLD,

Friday, December 1, 2006 – a note from Rose

Hello Amanda,
Thank you so much for the comment! I agree completely with you!
I think that boy needs to realize that maturity isn’t how many dirty jokes you know or watching all the bad tv shows that are on. I love debating! Unfortunately not many people really ask my opnion on things such as politics or the bible or other things worth talking about. Mainly becuase most girls my age don’t care or don’t know anything about stuff like that.
Thanks again for the comment,
Love hearing from you,
Rose
