What's better than reading blogs?
(Marilyn & Liesa)
Meeting the author of a blog in person, that's what!
Up until today I only knew IRL (in real life) two women out of all the blogs I have read. These are two women that I have known for many years. Lisa of "Butterfly Place" and Jana of "Scrapped Knees and Calendula Ointment".
Today Liesa George of "Life By George" and I met ...in real life...at McAlister's Deli for lunch. (Which she most graciously treated me to!) Liesa's teenaged son and one of his friends were having cross country running practice later in the afternoon so they came with her. They were so polite and just sat quietly while Liesa and I talked a mile-a-minute! It was just like we had known each other for years! We talked, ate, and visited for two hours! I hope this is not the last time we are able to get together and visit. Thanks Liesa for a great time!
(What we ate!)
Talking with a new friend about the Lord over a big glass of iced tea is about as good as it gets! The only thing better is talking with the Lord Himself in our quiet time with Him. He is truly the Friend of all Friends who will stick with us through the good, the bad, and the ugly !
"A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother." Proverbs 18: 24
