Michelle and I meet today at 12:30. We recognized each other instantly and greeted each other with smiles and a big hug.
What a sweet gentle spirit, Michelle has.
We spent 2 hours just finding out all about each other. Questions flying back and forth across the table as fast as we could talk!!! Such an easy flow and we kept remarking how amazing it was that you could become so attached to each other over a blog! But it is truly a fact of the blog!! Those connections are made and are real.
I had an emotional morning reading a blog of a one week old baby who was dying. Consequently, I was in a real weepy mood and just felt very burdened for this family losing this precious child and just for the problems of our world and the state of affairs in general in our world and in our individual lives.
SO, I spent a great deal of the time weeping!!! Even though I was so overjoyed with meeting and sharing with Michelle. Just fair warning to any of you who meet me.
I am a weeper!!!!!!
Michelle prayed the sweetest prayer over me just before we parted. It's so wonderful to be able to sit in a restaurant in Tulsa and pray openly. May we always have this wonderful freedom. I do not take it for granted. It is a privilege!!!
Michelle & I both are sure that God has a bigger purpose than we can know, at this point, in bringing us together and forming such a bond. It is exciting!!!
We shared a couple of private dreams and desires!!!
Michelle doesn't blog a lot but be sure to go here and check her our. Be sure and scroll down her side bar to the picture of her lovely fair face & blond hair surrounded by the beautiful faces of black children. This gives you a little taste of the heart of this precious young mother and missionary wife.
Michelle, I am honored to have shared 2 wonderful hours with you today!
And yes, Ginger, I gave her a separate hug from you.
We both talked how we wished you'd been here to share the time with us.
With my cup running over with joy.....I arrive back home to find this lovely hand made card in my mail box from my United Kingdom friend, Barbara! The sweet, handwritten message reads "Wishing you both a very Happy Anniversary with the richest of anointing in the years to come. Love & Blessing from across the ocean. Barbara & Alan xx"
Life with my God is such a joy and His mercies are new every morning.
I feel so sorry for those who do not know the thrill we have in serving such a wonderful RISEN SAVIOR!!
