There is a couple in our church who are the very definition of love and faith and kindness. They were the newlyweds in my art class, and I have had the pleasure of drawing their portraits, getting to know them in Bible studies, supper clubs, and family meal nights at church. Tonight they received some very hard-to-swallow news, and I pray that all that love, kindness and faith they have been giving out their whole lives is reflected back on them tenfold. I am so thankful that we have them as an example in our church of how to live the kind of life God asks us to live. Even if you don’t know them, I know they would appreciate your prayers. I know our lives just wouldn’t be the same without them.
