We finally met

This is my,dear blog friend, Susan of "BY GRACE". Please check out her blog
Her blog was one of my first blogs when I first started reading them.
She works along side her husband as missionaries in Canada.,
We finally got to meet in person. Oh I was so excited. Susan
is a sweet lady, with a accent that is just the best. You see, we
don't hear those accents as we type.
I hope we can get up and visit their church. Pray for them, as Wes and Susan work in Vancouver,BC.
I would also encourage you, if given a chance to meet a blog friend in person. Do IT !!!! Of course be prudent and be careful. We were....we had our husbands and were at a Revival type thing that was fantastic. Can't be much safer than that. Would love to meet her children next...saw Sam at a distance....Thanks Susan for your friendship !!!
We are still not feeling to great yet. We are 98% moved OUT of the old house
We have (my dh) has a few things he needs and wants to do before we put up the FOR SALE
sign. Settling here will be slow as there is some real TLC, needed. This is all going to be a process. THANK YOU for all the prayers, they are so appreciated.

It is awesome to get to meet blogging friends in person. I got the opportunity and privilege to meet Sis. Nikki (http://sturmfamily05.blogspot.com/) when I went to NC to visit with my sister-in-law a few years ago. Then I got the opportunity to meet Sis. Rhonda (http://missionary-mom.blogspot.com/) when her husband and the family came to the church my husband was pastoring to present his work and to stay with us for Thanksgiving a couple of years ago. That was so exciting. It has been an honor to call these two ladies my friends. And I have known Courtney (http://courtneyscontemplations.blogspot.com/) and been good friends with her momma for several years now. I hope to get to meet some more of my blogging friends sometime here...but if not here then I'll meet them and see them in Heaven!! I look forward to that for sure!!

Love you Sis!!
