a Blessing from being on line

Connecting with people from the past.
That is the neat thing from being on line.
I saw this on my friend, Sharon Ramirez' site.
She found us and wow, did this picture bring back memories.
Her dad, Paul Escalera was our pastor in England.
Let's see....our oldest son was a Senior is High school
our daughter, a Sophmore
our youngest son a 8th grader.
My beloved and I----much younger and thinner !!!
This was our last Sunday there....I cried when we left England. I loved it there.
We then went to Italy for 7 years.
Thanks, Sharon for this walk down memory lane.
Oh what a sweet reunion Heaven will be.
Now I need to stick on this diet....
first week I had a great loss

What a sweet picture of you, chickee! AND the family is adorable. I know what you mean about connecting with people from your past that mean a lot to you. I've done that recently, too.

Mark and Melissa said...

Wow we all look so young and thin huh! Dad looks like Josh... or Josh now looks like Dad then! That seems like a lifetime ago! Thankful for better hairdo's and not so high bangs!

Love you!

That is so cool! I haven't read here long enough to know your history. How cool that you have experienced so much abroad.

It must have been so fun to make this re-connection!

Is that Paul & Melody Escalera that are now in Nevada as Missionaries?? If so our church supports them. What a small world, they are wonderful people.

Hi Deby! Stephen Escalera here - just wanted to stop in and say hi! Facebook is definitely making this small world even smaller. It's good to hear you and your family are doing well.

Carrie, you asked if this was the same Paul & Melody that are currently in Nevada? Yup - one and the same! And I would definitely have to agree with your kind comment - they are indeed wonderful people! :)
