Meeting Up with Friends

Friday was a great day! I have looked forward to it for a long time and it finally arrived. Time for a road trip! We all know I love a good road trip. If you didn't know that, now you do. I love road trips!
I got to meet to of my bloggy sisters for lunch! Laurie, from Women Taking a Stand, and Jennifer, at Through the Storms of Life, and I met halfway. We each drove 2 hours and had lunch at McAlister's in Grenada, MS. It was AWESOME! We had a great time chatting and fellowshipping together for over 2.5 hours, and even had the opportunity to pray together twice, once while blessing the food and once before we left. Prayer meeting at McAlister's with friends, does it get ANY better?! The four hours total on the road were worth it. I got to see alot of God's beautiful creation along the way. The trees were so pretty this time of the year and the smell of fresh cut grass along the way was nice, too. They were mowing in some spots on the interstate.
Here are some shots. Maybe if you click on the first one, it will be bigger. If not, friend me on facebook and you can see...

These ladies are women after God's own heart, ya'll. If you ever have the opportunity to meet them, don't miss it.

Ok, jealousy is not a fruit of the Spirit -- ha, but I love both of those women. They are so sweet.

I know you ladies had an AWESOME time! That Jennifer -- she LOVES to drive. I'm surprised she didn't bring Dorinda with her. :o)

The pictures are great!

What a precious time the three of you must've had - truly in the presence of the Lord!

Have a blessed week, my friend.

Thank you for praying for my family and I over the past month and 1/2. It has definitely been challenging times.
