We attend a large Church and even though we have been there for 25 months it takes time to get acquainted on a personal basis. I had often seen Sandra and she reminds me of my sister, Marion. Recently the Lord placed her and her husband in the same Sunday School class with Mickey & I. It is from this Sunday School class that we had begun to develop more than a just "Hi, how are you?" friendship.
It is Sandra who brought the 2 sets of Per*ry St*one videos that Judy's Monday Woman's Bible Study is using. She has a job on Monday's and can't attend but told me about the studies and asked if I thought they would be something we would enjoy studying. Boy would we, and do we!!!
Last week, Tuesday the 24th, she came by to have lunch with us and visit. She arrived at 11 and we talked, and TALKED and TALKED!!!!
Would you believe we talked and visited for almost 5 hours? We did, and even then I didn't want to see her leave!! What amazed us the most was all the "connections" we had: people we knew, experiences we'd shared, etc. It was just an instant DEEP connection that are few and far between.
Sandra and her husband, Tr*avis, live about 30 miles SE of us toward Lake Ft. Gibson. They live on 80 acres, but Tr*vis works about 1000 acres. They have chickens and cows and coon dogs. She brought us 1 1/2 dozen fresh eggs. I can't remember the time we had fresh eggs. Yummy!!
This past Tuesday, the 3th, we went out to see them and Mickey loaded up his pick-up bed with cow & chicken manure for his garden areas. Another huge blessing. They have a lovely country home, that they built, with a huge, covered front porch. I love big front porches!!!!
I feel so blessed to have Sandra as a VERY SPECIAL friend and look forward to what God has in store for each of us.
There are friends, and then there are FRIENDS. Sandra is a FRIEND.
