These were my earliest visitors this morning, running down the road in front of us, doing the "turkey trot":
I apologize that I haven't yet had a chance to get around and visit all of your posts today...because we DID have REAL company here, enjoying the cool breezes and the wildlife and The Secret Garden! These were very special friends from over 35 years ago! They were members of one of our early churches in another state, and have been faithful friends ever since...visiting us in so many places throughout the years. It was such a privilege and joy to be able to share The Secret Garden with them today...and they pronounced it "very peaceful and beautiful". Actually...they agreed that the Presence of the Lord was in that place, and they found themselves wanting to sing and praise the Lord just while sitting there...The first song that came to mind was "Our God Reigns".
Here is a picture of my sweet friends today in the garden:
And here is a picture of these same friends when they came to visit me way back in 1982:
Here's the three of us. I didn't have the appropriate country garb at the time...but I do now! (No, I didn't wear it today.)
They are still a lot of fun...they couldn't believe I had these pictures!! Won't they be happy to see them on here? I love you girls!!!
Here we are with our hubbies today also...enjoying some Strawberry Shortcake:
