Fun with Friends

Tonight was a fun night.  Anna and I hosted our friends at our house.  Well, actually Anna's friends (at first).  The four young ladies you see in the picture were in a small group during college and they've stayed friends in the years since.  And all of us guys have been added along the way.  So, while they started as Anna's friends, they've grown to be my friends as well!

We had great food, lots of laughs, and deep conversations.  About marriage.  Weddings.  Faith.  Consumerism. Communism.  Mars Hill (in Grand Rapids, Michigan).  So many different conversations.  I feel really blessed to have so many Godly people in my life (both in my immediate community and in my blogging community, with both Steve and Ehren being particular blessings).  I thank God every day for the support around me.

On to my exercise updates (not too much so far, but I'll make up the gap!):

It looks like you guys were having a great time. It is awesome to have friends like this. This is one area my wife and I have always struggled. We have had a few friendships that were not as they seemed. Now, we are both pretty leery to let anyone get to close. Yeah, I know that is an issue, but it is the truth.

Like you, I consider both you and Ehren a great part of my journey. It is nice to have other Christian men that are going through the same thing as me there as support.
