Hello on Friday, everyone! Have you all been keeping warm in this frigid weather?
Here's a scene showing our backyard around here this week...reminds me of being in Canada a few weeks ago! It was 1 degree this morning--cold for Virginia! Jonathan has been in Toronto on a work assignment, and it's bitterly cold there. We'll be glad to have him back home tomorrow!
Today was my first day out this week. Here's part of our steep driveway that I nervously traveled down this morning. Trees keep the snow from melting...and there's a steeper snow-covered hill further on that I needed to climb before I made it out to the main road--much prayer that I wouldn't have a problem. Thankfully, all was well, and I made it on my way! And where was I headed you ask?
Well, the story began last week when I received a phone call from a strange number, and a lady asked to speak to me.
Turns out that she reads the blog but has never commented. A true lurker! :)
Well...we chatted a bit, and she told me a few things about herself and mentioned some mutual acquaintances and then asked if I would be open to going out to lunch with her.
And today was the day! She picked Panera Bread and traveled there to meet me from over the mountain.What an enjoyable time we had talking and fellowshipping together. The meal was delicious, and the time spent was very encouraging. Thank you, Anonymous Lurker, for a fun adventure!
(Remember when I met a lurker a few years ago?)
