For weeks, we had been invited to go to church with Holly and her family, and to lunch at a dear friends home and the men to have a target and skeet shoot competition after services. Well yesterday came and I just knew I was not going to be able to go, Was in so much pain, I think I tried everything but standing on my head. But you know what? About 9:30, I sneaked into the bathroom and had a little talk with my Master. I told him Sunday was his day, and if he would ease the pain, I would go to service and go to the festivities afterward as I wanted to so badly. I came back in the great room and sat for a few minutes, went to the kitchen and made a ice box lemon meringue pie. The ladies were to bring desserts.
Come this morning, yes there was pain, but nothing like yesterday. I was able to get ready and us be at church on time. God had answered my prayer. After hearing a great sermon, we all arrived at the home of my dear friend.
Let me introduce you to Judy. We were just kiddos, when my Daddy became pastor of the church where her family went. We grew up together and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding. She was a best friend. Over the years, we grew apart, both of us busy with our lives and her having 6 children
A few months before Mother passed away at the nursing home, Judy's Daddy was admitted. We saw each other there and began to reconnect. She came to our girls party last year for Christmas and here we are today. Seeing each other more lately than in many years. Isn't it sad to loose contact with someone you love and share so many childhood memories with?
Thank you so much Judy and Ben for a warm welcome and a wonderful afternoon, I still love you girl.
And of course Darbee Rae has fun everywhere she goes. She and Judy's grands are the perfect age for doing some serious playing
Ben was so good to the kids. They got their turn at shooting too,
I think Darbee Rae found out, playing, and being a girly girl was much more fun,
Then came the time for the men to act like boys and the real shooting began, It was so much fun to watch. For me the skeet shooting is amazing, I could watch all day, Mr, P did okay but .......shhhhhh his son in law out shot him by a mile, In fact he got first place and got a trophy.
Yes today we did something out of the ordinary, and it ended being a wonderful day. Memories that I will carry with me forever. If you have someone you have been wanting to reconnect with , don't put it off, Make arrangements to get together soon, You will not regret it,
All you prayer warriors, please continue to keep me in your prayers. God is good. I thank him for a great day.
Until next time.
