A man who has friends must himself be friendly

That's Proberbs 18:24. We had supper tonight at our friend's house, pictured above; in total there 16 of us eating there. Other cars were parked on the street.

Our subdivision has organized into four 'dining in' groups. Each group has around 24 people.

Proverbs 18:24 reads: A man who has friends must himself be friendly, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.


This is our friend, Don. It was at their home, Don and Charlotte, that all we met. This couple is the 'friend' who stick closer than a brother. Thanks, Guys, for opening your home to all of us, you were very gracious.

We have known them for seven years now, have attended the same Sunday school class, and play 42 (a Texas domino game) with them and eight others once a month. We do a lot of other things together, Mrs. Jim and Charlotte both play in our church orchestra.

Don is a very good golfer. I do not play with him very often, he is way out of my league. One Saturday Don played with my son, Mike, and a couple of others. Mike had the best score, probably par or very close.

That was fine, but Don and his group have a tradition that the winner buys a Coke for the others. Mike thought they were teasing him and refused to buy the Cokes.

[Note: There is another Proverb which can apply here, Proverbs 17: 17 "A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity." I don't have a brother. So? Maybe back when the Bible was written, everyone had a brother?]

Hi Dad- It sounds like a great time! Of course, I can't help but think of Ephesians 4:32 everytime I think about a friend! :-)
Jim you always have such nice stories to tell. I hope to make some nice friends like you have over the years.

I can send you some links with templates on them to change blog pages.

Let me know if you want them.

Take care xx
