I got to meet Sis Julie!

Now that I have the time, I'll tell you all about it. We were going to be in Birmingham AL, headed to Florida. I told my DH that we could easily swing through the Atlanta area so that I could meet my friend. He agreed, so I contacted Sis. Julie. We would be there the Wed. right before Thanksgiving. I don't know what she was thinking, but I knew that we were in for a treat! She is exactly as she seems to be on her blog, a woman passionate about her Saviour. Our families hit it off at once. Julie's girls are several years older than my 12-year-old, but they were great with her! She felt so special having the "big girls" paying attention to her. They even taught her to crochet, and she's doing quite well. My little Ronnie and her big Ronnie are quite similar. All Boy. Of course now her Ronnie's "all growed up" since he married his sweetheart, Jessica, which we also got to meet. We enjoyed worshiping with them at their Church. Sis. Julie's husband kindly invited us to his Mom's for Thanksgiving dinner. We gratefully accepted and had a wonderful day where we felt like part of the family. Pastor Brown's folks are sweet folks, too. I don't think that I could explain to a non-believer just how easy it is to become friends with other believers. We are family and there's no other way to explain it.
I'm honored to have Sis. Julie as a friend.

Oh Sister!! Kristina told me you had updated your blog so I had to come by and check it out. And then to find a post about your visit with us was a special treat. I'm so thankful that you and your sweet family enjoyed being with us. We felt we were the ones who got the blessing!!! Please tell your momma hello for me. She was such a blessing as well.

We counted it an honor to have had you stay for a couple of days and to spend so much time with us.

I love you my friend and Sister in Christ!!
