#2,572 First Friday.

Recently our church made the plan to start hosting a community prayer luncheon the first Friday of every month to pray for folks in our town who are trying to make an impact on the community and Ben and I were so honored to be the first guests today. Most of my family was able to come, despite our first winter ice storm in a long long time. I was feeling bit awkward at first because we like that the good we are doing is part of a bigger group effort and we struggle with being singled out, but to feel the love of our church and family there praying for this huge moment that’s ahead of us was humbling and so very very appreciated.

Here’s a very nice photogenic picture of me eating with my parents:

It means the world to have these people in my life, on our side. My sweet family.
