Friendship Warms the Heart

The gentle flicker of the campfire softly illuminates the faces of the friends seated around it. The warmth of it's flames warms our chilly fingers, just as the warmth of friendship warms our hearts. Seated on low logs, we chat pleasantly as we gaze into the lively flames that jump this way and that. Occasional laughter rings out through the darkness as we discuss the latest happenings of life while sipping hot chocolate and munching on toasty marshmallows. As the evening progresses, the rhythmic tapping of sticks on a rock begins to set the beat as we raise our voices and lift our hands in worship of the Savior. Gazing up at the dark sky that is dotted with a million shining stars, I can't help but stand in awe of the Creator. We dance through the field, singing and laughing, nothing but moonbeams lighting the ground. As we return again to the warmth of the fire, I notice that the once lively flames are now dying into glowing coals. This perfect evening will end all too soon, but while it still lasts I'll enjoy the uplifting fellowship of friends and praise the Lord for the blessings He has given me.
