Friends in Christ are FOREVER!!!!

That was the theme of the party my sweet friend, Jessica, hosted at her home on Saturday afternoon. From the time I got the beautiful, handmade invitation in the mail,

I started counting down the days until the event! You have to understand something about my friend Jessica. She is extremely creative and a very gifted artist! She has a knack for throwing the most beautiful parties and no detail is ever over looked. Jessica loves finding a reason (any reason-really) to host a party. Saturday, she decided to throw one in honor of friendship! What a great idea!!! I mean... how often do we get a chance to celebrate the friends the Lord has given us to "do life" with? You know...those friends who walk along side you, encourage you in the Lord, pray for you, and just love you for you! Well, for me, Jessica is one of THOSE friends!


The table was beautifully set and we indulged in a delicious lunch.


The Menu: Chicken Salad Croissants, Melon, Parmesan Cheese Bites,
and for dessert...


Vanilla Ice Cream rolled in Coconut and Toffee Chips


Everything was fantastic!!!

Jessica shared some stories from her heart about what each person there meant to her. Can you say..."pass the tissue's, please?" There was not a dry eye in the house!
At the end of the party, Jessica presented each one of us with several beautiful favors...

homemade bubble bath (which I CAN'T WAIT to use), personalized stationary, and a library card set.


What a perfect way to spend an afternoon...great food, sweet friends, and precious fellowship with my sisters in Christ!

I was so bummed to have to miss this. When I received her invite several months ago I knew I would be in Virginia on Saturday celebrating my sister's birthday. I would have equally loved to have gotten together with you ladies because I rarely have that opportunity. Sounds like, and I know it was, a very beautiful afternoon.

Thank you, Jenny for writing this post and including the pics. What a fabulous idea, for any age!! I just started in a summer Bible study called "One Month to Live". Very thought provoking. Having an event like this is such a great way to seize moment, to share love and show appreciation for our friends, our sisters in Christ. Thanks for the inspiration. Blessings, Donna

Hey sweet friend!

I was honored to have you ladies over and hopefully let you know all the ways you are so special to me.

Each of you has truly become my family and I am so honored to walk through whatever God has for for our lives together.

Love you,

Jessica <><
