to Shepherdsville, KY for a gospel meeting and ladies class was one wonderful week! One baptism, four responses, and LOTS of encouraging discussions from the Bible. Being able to finally meet some of you Pleo Pals in person was a big bonus.
Sorry I don't have any pictures from the ladies class on Saturday. I was too busy to keep up with a camera that day. But Frani
got some, so you might want to go there to see pictures from the luncheon break.
Sunday, Tom and Elaine Hehner came down from Ellettsville, IN to worship with us. We got to eat lunch together, thanks to our kind hosts and hostesses, then Elaine and I visited in the afternoon while the guys rested. Since we share three precious grandchildren with Tom and Elaine, we always have plenty to talk about!
Sunday evening we enjoyed supper with my nephew and his family, Nathan, Sarah, Kaelyn and Jackson. Since our gatherings at Thanksgiving are large, getting to really visit quietly doesn't happen. So having time with just them was a huge treat.
Monday evening Bruce and Diane, Grayson and Gaven shared their food and home with us and the Deaton family. But first we sang hymns for 45 minutes. THANKS for that!! Ya'll
are great sightreaders!
When Shirley asked what we like to eat, she may have wished she hadn't asked. Hey! We're from Texas! We love Mexican food!! Which explains the wall decor at the restaurant. Thanks, Shirley
and Stan! Pleo is fine, but in person is better.
works magic with chicken. The last time we were in their home was for Nathan and Sarah's rehearsal dinner. This was MUCH more relaxing! And we actually got to visit.
One day some of the ladies invited me to join them for lunch at a HUGE gift shop/restaurant. The food was good, and the conversations even better.
Due to an unavoidable change in his travel schedule, Ron Halbrook was in the Philippines the week of the meeting. But Donna was our most gracious hostess (She also lurks. Hi, Donna!), and I loved being able to spend time with her, catching up on family and friend news.
An hour and a half after our return from Kentucky, Josh and Lisa's family arrived for a 3-day visit. Pictures soon!
Hmmm. Proofreading this, it would appear we spent the entire week eating and talking. Not the ENTIRE week. But mostly...
