Good Morning Sweet Folks,
How are things in your corner of the
world today?? Hope there is something
fun and exciting happening for you!!
Well, our company left yesterday near noon, and I
have to say we were sorry to see them go...........
what a precious pair they are!!
Wanted to say thanks to all of you for leaving all
those encouraging comments, they meant so much,
and gave me warm fuzzies and smiles.
Our company was one of our previous Pastors and
his wife. We were over helping friends that were in
the process of moving on Thurs. afternoon, when on a
whim (so it seemed) they decided to drop by, they were
just coming into town planning to stay with another family
from our church. We were all so overjoyed to see them,
as about a year and a half ago, he had an aneurism and
almost died ( you might remember me asking you to pray
for him if you have been following my blog for awhile).
He is truly a walking miracle because you would never
know anything had happened to him, he was just as spry
jovial and wonderful as ever. He will be turning 78 in
April, and his wife 81 this month. There were gazillions
of prayers going up for this couple as everyone loves
them so much. He said the only thing different is he
doesn't have as much stamina as he used to, which
at 78, I would imagine most feel that way!!
Anyway, when we saw them over at our friends home,
hubby was asking them where they were staying,
and he was saying I wish we had known you were
coming we would have loved to have you stay with
us, we have a spare bedroom yada yada.
So not long after we got home we got a call from
them, because the family they were going to stay
with wound up having an unexpected emergency
with a parent in the hospital in bad shape in another
state, and of course, they didn't want to be a burden
to them,so they called us.................and we are so
happy they did, we had a truly wonderful time
catching up and hearing the details of what went on
during the time of the aneurism situation, we laughed,
we cried, we ate, we shared stories and jokes, we
loved on one another and it truly was such a joyous
time of fellowship,
Think we all felt like we had been to a retreat!!
And I felt like I got out of the boat, and walked on
the water, as my Pastor was saying on Sunday,
cause I did a spare of the moment hostess
situation, which was way out of my comfort zone,
but my love for these lovely people over road
my discomfort or fears.
And everything turned out fine, I lived and loved
through it hubby was a huge help, and they were
great house guests, and were so sweet to take us
out to dinner on Sunday, and because of the way
it happened we all felt it was a divine appointment.
Still can't say this would be my favorite way to
entertain, but at least now I know it is possible
for it not to be a disaster, and am a little bit
more flexible than I was before!! lol
Yesterday was hubby's birthday and we were
so hoping we might hear about the job, but
still nothing, but who knows maybe this week
or maybe never!! Whatever!!
We are going out to celebrate today, cause
we were too pooped yesterday, so looking
forward to another good day.
Well, going back to bed for awhile, I have
been awake since 4:40, so maybe I can get
comfortable now and catch and hour or so!!
Hope so anyway!!
Hopefully I will be around to visit some this
evening or tomorrow!
Have missed you guys,
Love, Hugs and Blessings Galore,
