On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Betcha' Can't Top this One!!!

Having been married to someone who has been a firefighter for the past 37 years, I know fairly well about the great camaraderie they share. They love to tell stories, have been known to exaggerate just a tad, and anybody who has a tale to tell knows there will always, always be somebody else who will top that one and tell yet another one even better.

So the telling of my story of meeting up with fellow blogger and her Mister, has been made easy, because your sweet friend and mine, (better known as Sweet Tea), has already told it delightfully right here.

I can't top her telling of the tale! She does have a way with words, doesn't she? Her creative blog posts always keep it real, leave me smiling, and her comments to other bloggers are thoughtful and encouraging.

Although there may be negative things to be said for the space-age technology in this age, I think we would all agree that one of the greatest positives is how it has enabled us to re-connect with people we haven't seen for years or otherwise might not have connected with.

The meeting place we chose was The Potpourri House in Tyler, Texas ..."an experience of southern hospitality and comfort"--perfect for a meeting with this warm and friendly couple.  We had never before sat down at table together, but there was no lack of conversation and laughter. My DH and I went away grateful that we had taken the time to make this happen and wishing there had been more time to visit.  (Why are we all so BUSY these days?)

Are they adorable or what???
As my DH always says, "Ain't love grand?"
These two radiate love and they should know all about it!
It has stood the test of time.
Her parting comments, and mine as well are: when you have an opportunity to do something like this, go ahead and do it. Now is the right time to enjoy the people we love, to make new friends, or renew old friendships. Perfect timing ... perfect day.
We had such a good time.
Thank you.

I read her post and I told her how much I love your blog and I love hers' too.! I'm glad you took the time and I'm going to get to meet a fellow blogger at the end of November. Knowing someone just by a blog makes it seem like we're meeting a celebrity when it happens! Life's too short to put off having a good time!

" when you have an opportunity to do something like this, go ahead and do it"

I so agree with that and so glad you got to spend that time Nonnie!

I had breakfast this summer with a blogging buddy from Iowa. I so appreciated his efforts to make it happen and I really enjoyed our time together!

I find it interesting that so many other Bloggers have had meet-ups too. Gurl, we are behind in the loop. LOL What a great time we had. Still thinking about it.

I read Sweet Tea's blog about y'all meeting, so I just had to read yours too!
LOVE the photo of the two of you with great big smiles, I am so happy that you met. Wish I could have been there too! Lots of laughter, I am sure!

What a lovely post. I will go and read Sweet Tea when I finish my comment. I've met a couple blog friends in person. Like you and your husband, now one of our dearest couples, is ones I met on the blog and now we actually spend time in Tahoe together. Wonderful times.

Very lovely post. The only bloggy friend I have met has been Sparky from My Thoughts Exactly. She and her lovely husband drove over from GA (we were living in Ala. at the time) and we all have become fast friends and remain so to this day. She & my son even correspond. Blessings
