A few months ago I blogged about a special new friend, Gogo Joanna that I met along my ministry travels. We met in July of last year and I had the awesome privilege of telling her about Jesus. I tried to visit her often bringing her sweets and biscuits (cookies) by request.
I met precious baby Noah via cyberspace just 1 month later, August of 2006. He captured my heart and his parents love and faith is nothing less than inspiring!
Both new friends from different walks of life….one old and grey the other just beginning life……one born into a God-fearing family full of faith the other learning children’s bible stories only in her 80’s. Born oceans a part with generations between them yet both have one thing in common;the most important thing in my opinion……they are with their Lord afresh and anew right now.
I did not know either of them very well yet I fell in love with them like they were my own flesh and blood. Both went Home last week. I can’t help but wonder if they’ve met? I envision baby Noah cuddled up on Gogo (grandma) Joanna’s lap both full of laughter and eating biscuits!
Although it was only a short time that I knew these two, my life has been enriched by both. Gogo Joanna and baby Noah I will see you in heaven one day soon and for that I am truly grateful!
