“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled
Celebrating the opportunity to visit with my high school friend, David and his family was an unforgettable treasure! The memories, great fish fry, the surprise appearance of our Bennett High School yearbook and laughter were an elixir! Friends the opportunity to reconnect with a dear friend and his precious loved ones really blessed our souls. They were so gracious and kind. It felt like a family reunion. David reminded me that we last time we visited each other was in 1979. I was on my way to grad school, he'd be starting college. Soon his career was being jumpstarted in news and broadcasting. It's 2009, this is certainly evident that time is fleeting! I’ll surely have to share a post about the importance of staying connected and reaching out to those that have impacted our life for the better. We can celebrate God's faithfulness over our life's journey.
Friends, I contend it’s a must do in our lives. Consider reaching out to some positive friends from the past, you’ll be surprised at how revived you feel. David and I shared that it’s probable that there are more days behind us, then ahead. But, indeed we’ve got lots of living yet to do.
A family pose with Poncho!
In a word-exceptionable! That’s who Larry Poncho Brown is. There were missed opportunities in the past to attend Larry Poncho Brown’s Open Houses, but thank goodness not this occasion. My husband navigated our way and before long we were in Poncho's studio eating up the goodies and marveling at his creations! Wow, what an amazing artisan! His work defies labeling! Yes, I am truly a fan. Friends, kindly visit his virtual site to wet your artistic loving taste buds. You can acquire his work online to add to your collections. If you have the opportunity to stop by his gallery once, you’ll go back again and again. He’ll graciously receive you! Maybe we'll bump into each other at the next event?
Cousin/ Sister Loretto and my Sweetie Ricky!
Finally, meet this remarkable order of The Oblate Sisters Of Providence. They are a unique order of nuns that are of African descent. They’ve unselfishly dedicated their lives to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, providing solid educational opportunities and enriching the lives of those in impoverished communities in the United States and abroad for over 179 years.
