If all goes as planned,(and believe you me, this has been planned for months!!!), FarmgirlCyn and Farmboy will be in the sweet burbs of Chicago come Thursday afternoon till Sunday, visiting Cityfarmer Joy, with her darlin' Don!
We go back a long way, Joy and I. From a little, full gospel church in West Michigan, back in 1987, to the present. We have truly been there for each other, thru thick and thin, joy and sorrow, life and death. We have laughed together, and cried together. Told each other our deepest longings, our deepest fears, our deepest sorrows.
And we still love each other.
"Iron sharpens iron", the Word of God says. And that has been true for us. We sharpen each other. We say things that might hurt, but brings eventual healing. We say things out of love, for the Word of God says "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails."
I love you, Joy.
