"God is love and those that abide in love abide in God and God in them." - St. John
I love the word "abide". It speaks of a gentleness and comfort. When we "abide" with another we rest in the security of our love and the peace that true friendship gives. That is what we did this past Championship week. We "abided" with each other in quiet moments and raucous cheering. We shared in the "nacho man" chant and cheers for the Sharks and the Wolves in the Kids Championship Game. Hand shakes after victories and defeats were heartfelt. New friends were made and old friends embraced.
It is the love of God that brought us together and sustains now, tomorrow and next year.
