We Got Together…

May 13, 2010

The other couple came over and we all just walked around the land and talked and shared the latest about our situation. It was good. If I heard correctly, they are looking to be friends…which would be wonderful for us…and, hopefully, for them. I know it can be hard for pastors to find friends when they relocate to a congregation. It is much easier to be friends with someone who is outside…like us. So, just maybe, this will be good for them and for us.

Hubby went to a bible study with him that evening and our son and I went to visit with the wife and her daughters. We all enjoyed it. I got to go see the new house they are trying to buy. We are excited for them. They “get it” that our living situation does not keep us from enjoying other people’s blessings. Not at all. We just enjoy being able to get together.

I hope we can get into something within the next few months so that we can invite them over and be able to do more with them.

I am hopeful.


  1. I’m so happy for you. I hope this turns out to be a blessing for everyone!

  2. Wow. Wow! You did it… you started a rhythm. A rhythm of your very, very own. Good for you! I am so proud of you! You are wise, and courageous, and you did a great thing. Now, everything is different than the day you were living before you picked up that phone. No matter what happens from this point on, you can remember the day that you decided to actively change the environment of you LIFE. And you can always go back to that day, that phone call… and all the things that came afterward, and remember that this was moment when you chose to believe that it IS in your power to shape the direction of your life… and not just be a hapless victim of the crappy life that just wasn’t your fault–or even about you–and know that you chose your SELF. You took your power. Good for you.

    I hope you journey well.

    This is so cool.


    • Goodness…I certainly did not see it as all that, Meredith! I do cry on people’s shoulders every once in a great while…but this is a bit different. I believe I am going to like this. It seems that they need friendship, too, which helps to make this a good fit.

  3. Well, I just think it’s great. You’ve written several pieces about different stresses and such over the past couple of months. I can’t help but be happy for you. Guess I’m just an excitable person. 🙂

    • You made me smile, Meredith! Please…be as excited as you want. I know that I am excited.

      We got together again last night. Woohoo!
