New Family Members

These are new members of mama and papa's family. The top picture is Papa with Russ & Lydia Hutto. We stopped and chatted with them for about an hour at a ice cream parlor. Russ is a media & worship team leader for a church in southern GA. Lydia is a speech therapist for children - a very unique couple. We are definitely family now. They were so very friendly and warm - gentle and huggable. lol

Our first encounter though was with Nanatrish. We met her for lunch earlier that day. What a happy, friendly, bubblie, lady! She has a very unique ministry. She is very excited about her life's profession ! She works for an Eye Bank Organization. She manages the office staff that makes this happens. She says the reward comes when others find sight - some for the first time. Can you imagine?!

This makes 17 bloggers mama and papa have met - when do we meet you? Maybe we have!!

Mama and Papa, I think something was wrong with your camera. I look like a stuffed piggy. I am on a serious weight loss program as we speak. I'm so glad you got to drop by. Maybe next time I can give you a tour at my job. If you'd like? You guys are so sweet and it's too bad you are so far away. Thank the Lord we have our blogs. I must pop over to meet CrossView when I get a chance. luv ya, Trish

Hi Papa,

Happy (late) Thanksgiving! Thank you for checking in on me. I so appreciate it. I am doing great. Just in a season of 'quietness'. I check in on you though, just to make sure you are behaving! ;)

I am praying that God will provide a way for me to get to Indian Lake next summer. I would LOVE to spend time with you, mama, and CDC. 3 of my favorite people in one place! That's close to Heaven on earth!!!

Love ya!

Indian lake Papa (and Mama) I am delighted to meet another Nazarene in the blogosphere... and a SS teacher at that! LOL! We are in Jacksonville, Arkansas and welcome you anytime you get around this area. I spent 20 years in the road in the US and Europe promoting Little Rock and Arkansas. Needless to say, for a while I plan to enjoy staying at home. Maybe by next year the bug to go somewhere will bite me again and we will take you up on your offer to visit. God bless you both richly.
