I reunited with an old friend this past weekend at the Greystone 100th anniversary reunion. This friend is the one who gave me the very same green Bible that I read every morning of my life. She left it on my cabin bunk in 1994 with my name embossed in gold and a note inscribed in the front about making Jesus my first love.
We all need that friend. And we need to become that friend to others.
We’re so much older now by 25 years. But what a legacy Elizabeth Madden Pehrson left in my life from that summer onward!
