Thank thee for kindly accepting our invitation. I hope to get to know thee better. I do not come here as frequently as I used to, nor do I participate in the discussions as often as I used to, but I do wish to start visiting a bit more and participating more as well as get to know thee and other Friends here: the ones I'm used to and fresh newly formed friendships also. I hope to be an agreeable and upright Friend to thee.

Thy Friend in the Light of God and His Christ,

(:(: ~Timothy~ :):)
