Thank you for your prayers! My back is better! :-)
~It has been 12 years since I have had my engagement gift hanging in our house!!!!
My dear parents kept it safely for me while we were on the mission field.
The other day Phillip hung it above our bed.~
(The lighting was not really the best when I took this pic.)~
He used a technic called pointillism.
There are no straight lines on the whole picture. They are all POINTS...OR DOTS!!!!
Talk about a PATIENT man!!! I wouldn't last drawing dots for more than a half an hour. :-) ~
Her sister and 2 other close friends who had attended with her the year before, were not returning that year, and she was coming back all Alone!
That lonely girl was Kelly.
One of her friends happened to be on campus visiting and was chatting with Kelly.
I had come as a freshman that year. I knew the friend, so I ran up to say hello.
Little did I know that after I walked away....the friend told Kelly that I would make a nice friend for her.
Kelly and I became fast GREAT friends...and then became roommates for 2 years.
We made a TON OF GREAT memories during those years!
Our boyfriends attended G.B.S. ministerial dept. together as well, worked at the same place and carpooled together.
Kelly and I got married the same summer and we were in each other's weddings.
We have stayed close friends since those college years.
Now...it's fun to see our children being close friends too.
So, this past Sunday we invited Steve, Kelly and children over for Sunday dinner.
So, I enjoyed doing it on my table for Sunday.~
First thing Monday morning....
guys showed up to tear down the FALLING DOWN house next door to us!
So, it became an "outside-the-house-
watch-and-learn-experience" for all of us!~~It was chilly outside and rainy, so I ran inside and made some COCOA...MOCHAS for everyone to drink.~
It was unreal!
He had this house basically down in about an hour.~
Jesus kept our house safe!~
~Isn't it crazy how LONG it takes to build a house and get it just right...
And then in an hour or so it can be DESTROYED?
Quite the lesson for LIFE!
Let's put our time and effort into winning souls and touching LIVES FOR JESUS...
For ALL THE REST will be
Destroyed some day!~
~The empty field beside our house now!~
So Laura ran inside and made biscuits and soppy Chocolate, and I ran inside my house and made boiled eggs and sausage.
It was a yummy fun time together.~
then our Global Holiness Missions Missionary Convention Thursday-Sunday,
Then we leave TUESDAY MORNING FOR MY BELOVED I.H.C. ...
I may not get to blog for a few more days.
BUT...If I get an extra minute tho, rest Assured...that I will. :-)
