I didn't want to steal her thunder by posting a picture of them together before she has had a chance to post her pictures. (you can revisit this post, I may update it with more pics, later!)
They are such good friends, and have been for years. I'm also friends with her mom. Isn't it a blessing to have good like-minded friends that share the love of the Lord with you?
My husband, Mary, and I were all there for the picture taking, and then we dashed off to a function that my husband wanted us to go to for his work—as they all left for the ball. (only the young lady and her escort and immediate family get tickets to attend the ball because of space limitations) Doesn't Alex look handsome? ☺
My friend, Fran, the mom of the young woman whom Alex escorted, called me yesterday morning and said she was praying Psalm 15 over Alex. Isn't it wonderful to have friends who pray for your children? What a gift to us when I heard that!
Well, you better believe when I heard her voicemail, it didn't take me two minutes to find my Bible and find out what it said. She called it, "A Gentleman's Psalm."
I loved it—and am adding it to my prayers for both of my sons' lives—that they will live lives of integrity—set apart for Christ. (Alex, 18, on left below, John, 20, on right)
Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
Who may live on your holy mountain?
The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.
Walk by Faith,
