And I got one of the BEST ever yesterday.

I'm busy in the kitchen making a huge salad to take to our friends house
for a Memorial Day cookout.

The phone rings and Mickey answers and handing the phone to me says,
"I don't know who it is"

It was Pen-of-Jen!!!!
calling ME from Alamogordo, New Mexico.

Took me a few minutes for it to sink in - Jen you sound exactly like a
girl I use to go to church with.

Now, any of you calling me would be a HUGE thrill, trust me,
but Pen-of-Jen is one of my favorite bloggers
because she has such a passion for Christ
and is so truthful and up front.

I love that about you Jennifer!! :o)

Talk about making some one's day.

She made mine.
I just floated about 3' off the floor the remainder of the day.

Some day I hope we meet in person---

I KNOW we'll meet at HIS throne

and worship HIM together.

Just in case you aren't already checking out her blog everyday already go here
for her Pen=o=Jen blog.

or here, for her McBenning School blog.
Both great reads.

You are so kind! I love you and your passion, thank you for being such a wonderful friend.

OK now I am blinking back tears. I know like you, that we will worship together.

Oh, you are so special that it was me that felt like I was flying, and it is you that has been a beacon to me!

I must confess that you are every bit the way that your voice is- sweet, loving, warm, and gentle. I send my ((hugs)) and love your way!

Wonderful surprise! Making new friends is terrific.

Susan, your post from yesterday about the words really struck a chord with me. I hope it is OK that I linked to you in my post--seeing as how I was discussing the concept you presented! Somehow I thought it would be OK--since you love visitors and all!

Have a great day!

A lovely surprise indeed:-) I've had the pleasure of talking on the phone with a few of my blogging friends and it's always such a joy to hear their wonderful voices and chat like we've known each other forever!! xoxo

What a blessing for you! I've talked to a few of my pen pals on the phone before, and it was such a thrill! It really closes the distance gap, doesn't it?

Pam said...

Can I just say this? "I'm Jealous!" No not really, I'm thirlled for you Susan. That is like getting a call from a big celebrity only better, because this gal loves our Lord!

Blog postings thoughtfully laid out - like that around a dinner table - nicely prepared.
