I look forward to it…long for it even. Homecoming weekend here at York College always brings lots of house guests, soccer games, and festivities. All throughout the weekend, we run into so many friends that we love catching up with. Often, we don’t know who will be coming, so bumping into people we love all throughout the weekend is always so much fun!
One of the highlights of this weekend was that Matt was able to talk his former YC roommate – the best man in our wedding – into making the trip from Texas. They played soccer together, traveled to church camps together during summer breaks, and have been wonderful friends from the time they first met. Having him here for the weekend was fantastic. The only thing that would have made it better is if his family could have joined him. Next year. (Cindy, that was a hint.) :)
Here they are after playing in the alumni soccer game. Watching my guy play in that game is a highlight of my year – probably because it is a highlight of his. Why yes, he did score a goal that day. :)
Before all the running around began, we were able to sit in the living room and play games together. Love this.
I had the most fun making meals for all of our guests. I’m thankful I had so many meals made up ahead of time so that I was able to relax and enjoy my company. Our friend Lisa was celebrating her birthday while she was here, so the Cake Boys rose to the occasion. That episode will be coming soon, I’m sure.
Lisa loved the cake. Well, we all did, as a matter of fact.
The hugs, the visits, the fun – they all filled me up and left me refreshed. I am so thankful for all of the wonderful people God has put in our lives to encourage and sharpen us.
