When we first moved to Kennesaw one of our prayers were for Godly, close relationships with other couples our age! We lived in Statesboro for a year and never really had any relationships with people our age. I think it was the end of the first year that we met David and Becky in our Sunday school class. It's so funny to think back on because at that time they only had Ashley-Noelle and now they have three beautiful children! At around two years we met Jon and Courtney. The lady I taught High School Sunday school with taught 5th grade with Courtney. Jon and Courtney were trying to find an adult Sunday School class and I told Stacy to tell them that we would meet them and they could come and visit our class! And so our friendship started. Through them we met Matt and Lydia. Lydia and Courtney went to Berry College together! Almost every one else we met through our Sunday school class.
I know this is boring for some, but to me it is so neat to think back and see how faithful the Lord has been to bless us with these relationships. Also, neat to see how these same relationships have changed over the past 4 1/2 years. Some we are closer to now than we were and vice versa, but people come and go at just the right times in your life!
All this to say, we were so blessed to have all of our close friends and some of our family up for a pig roast as a goodbye party for us!
