Our friends Paul and Stephanie have been here this week. Stephanie was my matron of honor when Michael and I got married 33 years ago. Paul and Michael became good friends right away. We introduced them to camping early on and we have enjoyed many camping vacations together.
They moved and then we moved and they moved again. But through the years, we have remained friends. We may not see each other for a couple of years, but when we connect again, it is like we were never apart.
We have had an enjoyable time together this week, even though we haven’t really gone anywhere. We have simply enjoyed being with each. We’ve gone to the lake a few times to walk around–it’s a small lake and very small park–and enjoy getting some fresh air.
Early this week we went and visited with Brian, Lauren, and Liam. We ate at a new restaurant in the area–Eddie’s. It was delicious! Afterwards we went to Brian’s favorite place for boba tea and introduced it to Paul and Stephanie.
I got mine with only 1/4 the boba and it was much better for me than with the whole amount of boba.
After that, Brian showed us around where he works, at Life Church.
Brian loves his job and the fact that his day job furthers the kingdom. So proud of him.
Stephanie and I have had some art time. She has been doing stamping and card making for many years. I’ve never been very successful at stamping, so I asked her to give me some pointers.
She also showed me how to emboss. I’ve never used the embosser I got for my birthday last year. So she showed me how to use it. Thankfully, she said I got a good embosser and an excellent deal.
She also showed me how to use copic markers, which I have had for several years and never attempted using. I shared about that last Wednesday.
We’ve had a good visit. I hope you have a great weekend.
Until next time, God bless,
