Thanks to a Very Good Friend

I have lost track of how many years it has been since I met Gary but its been several years now. He's a deep thinker, a very honest and compassionate person and he's an incredibly talented artist. He has done the logos for Backpacks For Pine Ridge and REZonate and has done so with short notice and never asked for a thing in return. That's just how he is. Just happy to serve. Tonight he sent me the header that you now see on my blog. Its beautiful! I really love it and it is extra special because it brings to mind a mutual friend that Gary and I shared for several years who is no longer with us. Thanks Gary! Your friendship is a treasure.

Amber, it will be 10 years in November. How life has changed in those times, eh? So hard at times. But God has redeemed all the pain.

If I were half as giving as you, my world would be a different place. It's been a total privilege to be able to do a few things for your ministries. This time it was great to do something that was just for my friend Amber.

Even though I have not yet met you and Brian in person, I consider you both to be special friends. You are certainly special people.

Once again I am impressed and envious. Gary's made you and KBob banners but not me - boo hoo! I guess I could ask him to make me one :) I agree, he's a great guy!!

It looks GREAT, Amber!

"talented artist" is somewhat of an understatement. He is gifted... in many, many ways.
