adj.; dearly loved : dear to the heart

I thought this is the perfect title for this blog post (and not just because this word is tattooed behind Andrea's right ear). ;)

Actually, Josh and Andrea Bailey are very good friends of mine and I love them both dearly. They are beloved by their family, friends, church and by so many in need in the Richmond community. They started their own local non-profit, The Gray Haven Project, that has an amazing mission to provide hope and restoration to victims of human trafficking in Virginia. They have made such a difference and touched so many lives. I am blessed to know this humble couple and lucky to call them my friends. I am so happy that they will be expecting a sweet baby girl this June... the sweet and beloved Emilia Alejandra Bailey.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
