Marvelous Monday.....

I've been so privileged to "meet" some very special ladies thru the world of blogging!! 
It's very rare that we actually get to meet face to face, though!
Last Tuesday, that very thing happened to me.

I've been blogging friends with Ms. Cindy at Creations by Cindy for at least five years.  She and her husband vacationed near where we live a few years ago and we decided then that if they were ever back in the area, we would have to meet.  Well, we made that happen.....
after she convinced her sweet hubby that I'm not a serial killer.....
We met at Bass Pro Shop and Mr. Marty bought all of us coffee.
We all 3 sat and chatted for a bit, but then he went off to venture thru the store and left us to talk.  Close to two hours later, she called to tell him we were ready to step outside for pictures.  It was like we had known each other forever......realize we have a lot in common......and what a blessing it was that God brought us together thru our blogs.  I'm already looking forward to their next visit to the Great Smoky Mountains....or God landing me in Florida one of these days!!!

Thank you, Ms. Cindy, for taking the time out of your vacation to meet with me.
(and thank you again for my precious little owlies)

Breathing in Jesus,



  1. Oh my sweet friend, it was a pure joy and God ordained for us to meet in person. Sharing our sisterinhood in Christ along with truly feeling like "long time friends" was nothing but pure bliss. I am grateful that the Lord opened a door for us to meet in person. What a great time I had chatting with you. My sweet Marty laughed later as he said, "I do believe you gals could have yakked all day". LOL! Love my scarf that you made me and I will always treasure it. What a sweet gift made by your hands that I will treasure! Thanks for meeting me as well and maybe one day we can make that happen again. Got a feeling that "we will pick right back up" where we left off and not miss a beat!!! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. Just a little jealous here :)
    Do you remember a few years ago when we were planning our pass through Strawberry Flats (is that the right name) and tried to meet?
    Maybe next time. We get through there maybe two times a year.....
    Isn't it fun to meet people whose words you've come to love?

  3. How cool is that??? Blogging friends are the best!

  4. How much fun! So glad you were blessed with the opportuniry to get together!


  5. How great for you to meet up. I just love your header by the way. God Bless

  6. How fun! I sure hope we get to meet up some day! My heart is longing to see those mountains again.
