Last Weekend ~
I also was able to visit my childhood friend that in recent years reconnected with through classmates. I'm so blessed to have her in my life. We got together on her lunch break - the visit was to short, but wonderful. I also got to see another girl from school who remembered me. In fact she went into detail as to where I lived and even the old white stucco pillars that had pieces of all different colored glass in them. I loved those things and apparently everyone else, how funny. They were the fascination of every kid around there dating back into the late 20's and early 30's. My Uncle told me they were there before he was born and he was born 1931. I wished I had a picture! I think I've loved sparkly glass ever since. I feel badly that I'm so bad with names, faces I'm very good at - even details. I have to admit that I'm getting better with the names though - I hope -- I think! LOL
I did have a wonderful time - I ate and snacked way to much and loved watching movies with my Mom - which we don't ever get to do. On leaving the area I was going through Springdale heading out to the turnpike. As I got to Cheswick (all in like a 5 mile radius or less) I thought to myself, I never got a picture of the house my grandpap built in the early 40's. I didn't know the address but I knew it was in the area. Also, I've wanted to see it for years and never took the time to do so.
If I could have I would have stopped in and thanked the people for taking such good care of the house with the high pitched roof. Maybe next time!
Isn't it something that we can remember even the smallest detail of things that are important to us?
Scripture tells us that God knew us even before we were born into this world,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:16
Also in - Jeremiah 1:5
I can not even comprehend how much the Lord loves us and how important we are to Him. Even the very hairs on our head are numbered!
Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows. Luke 12:7
I pray you have a blessed day and week to come and I pray the Lord will give you insight to what is truly important in your life.
