Christmas GTG from Omaha

We had such a great weekend. Kristen and her husband, Devyn braved the rough 80/90 all the way from Nebraska to come visit Steve and I before heading south to Lafayette to her in-law's house.  They arrived Saturday night at around 7:30 and we went to dinner at Indulgence in South Bend.  Yum. I love that place.We sat around and talked about all kinds of stuff until the turned the "Open" sign off.  I guess that was our clue to go home.

After Indulgence, we went back to our house and talked some more and played with their cute little dog, Bruno.
We talked about everything from life to work to Wycliffe.  Devyn seems to especially like Da Jesus Book.
Here is a picture of all of us after church this morning.

I hope that they had a great time too.  I loved getting to meet someone from an online group that has been so important to me, in real life.  Even though we have "known" each other online for about 9 months, we met in person for the first time on Saturday.  It felt so comfortable, like we had known each other our whole lives.  At least to me it did.  This group has been a God-send to me this year.  There are so many spectacular women in this group.  Now, I'm looking forward to Christmas.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NIV) 

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.


  1. Hi from ICLW! Looks like y'all had a fun day!! Have a Merry Christmas

  2. So glad to have found you through ICLW! My godparents are with Wycliff and spend 10 years in the Philipines. Our family is originally from Hawaii and Da Jesus Book was a BIG hit with us when the paraphrase was first published. Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog. Merry Christmas.

  3. Sounds like you had a great evening. How nice that you were able to meet up with a couple that you met online, and that now you can be "in real life" friends too :)

    1. It was pretty special to meet them in person. :)

  4. So awesome to be able to meet new like-minded folks! Happy holidays and ICLW!
