FULL OF JOY! REJOICE!!


PHILIPPIANS 4:4
MY FRIEND, LISA, WHO LIVES HERE IN THE OMAHA AREA, 
HAD BEEN DOING SOME NURSING IN THE
TACOMA AREA.  SINCE I WAS RAISED
IN THAT AREA AS A KID,
AND HAVE SISTERS AND FRIENDS AND
NIECES AND NEPHEWS AND
LOTS OF OTHERS OUT THERE,
I TOOK A PLANE OUT SO
I COULD SPEND HER LAST FEW DAYS THERE WITH HER.
I WANTED TO SHOW HER AROUND 
THE PARKS AND THE PUGET SOUND AREA AND MY FAVORITE DINNER PLACE.  AND MY FAVORITE COUSINS,
MY SISTER AND FRIENDS.

WHAT A WONDERFUL TREAT TO SPEND THOSE 
DAYS LAST AUGUST TO SHOW LISA AROUND.

MY SISTER, BETTY, TOOK THE PICTURE.
 LISA GAVE BETTY, AND
MY COUSIN SHARON,
ALL THE STUFF LEFT FROM HER
LIVING PLACE WHEN SHE WAS HEADING 
TO SEA-TAC GET TO OMAHA. 

HUNDREDS OF PIECES OF FOOD AND MANY OTHER PIECES
WERE SPREAD AROUND AND SHARED.  
IT TRULY WAS A BLESSING.

SO, WHEN THERE, WE WERE FILLED WITH
THE JOY OF THE LORD
AND WE WERE REJOICING,
TOGETHER OR SEPARATELY.

SHE'S BEEN A TREAT TO ME HERE IN OMAHA
AND THEN A TREAT IN TACOMA.

I STAYED ANOTHER 3 DAYS AFTER LISA LEFT
WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS BEFORE HEADING HOME.
MISS IT ALL SO VERY MUCH!!

AND SUDDENLY I GAINED A "GRANDSON".
WE'VE BEEN TALKING OCCASIONALLY.
WANT TO SEE HIM AGAIN WHEN I'M OUT THERE
AND I WANT HIM TO MEET MY HUSBAND, 
HIS "GRANDPA".

What a blessed time to spend with your friend, and then she was able to share food and essentials with your family and friends as she prepared to move. Thanks for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.
