Sidra is going home to Pakistan. She and her family drop by the porch for a goodbye. Her husband is on a military visa, along with officers from around the world. She and the children will head back tomorrow. This is the nature of overseas friendships: people come into your life, enrich it, and go home again. The networks span the world.
Sidra has been a lovely addition to our walking group, as were her kids. They'll be missed. Her husband leaves us a pewter medallion:.
"Don't forget me," Sidra says. I won't. We put the token on the memory shelves in the nook.
*Some give freely, yet grow all the richer; others withhold what is due, and only suffer want. Proverbs 11:24
*Paul said, “In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35
Moravian Prayer: Lord, you gave your all for humanity; teach us to give sacrificially, so that the message of hope and reconciliation can reach all peoples. Amen.
