Momma, Sarah Mae, Myself, & Breezy (Photo by Jesse)

Last weekend we had Sarah Mae (from Like a Warm Cup of Coffee) and her family over from Wednesday through Sunday morning. It was a wonderful weekend of rich fellowship and getting to know one another in person. We originally met Sarah online through our blogs over a year ago, and we were blessed to actually meet her in person – and get to spend a whole weekend with her family!

After they arrived Wednesday evening, we talked and got to know each other a little better. It is interesting how strange it is to finally see someone “move” who one has only seen in pictures. It was also a relief (not that we had any doubts) to find that we all got along splendidly! What kindred spirits they are!

Journeying through the Creation Museum.

Thursday we ate, talked, watched Return of the Daughters, ate, and talked the rest of the day away. On Friday we all drove down to the Creation Museum and spent the day there. It is always so good to go through there (no matter how many times!), and we were able to help watch over the children so that Jesse and Sarah Mae could soak it all in.

One of the special parts about their visit was having children in the house – it was wonderful to get to practice our “mothering skills”! Children are such precious blessings from the Lord, and it is amazing to see them grow and learn – just like we do in our daily walks with God!

We spent Saturday much like Thursday, but in addition to that we worked on Sarah’s new blog design . Sunday morning was their departure time. It was sad to see them go, but if they did not go we would not be able to visit them, nor could they visit us again.

We loved listening to and learning from Sarah Mae, in her gracious and joyful manner! What a blessing this dear family has been to ours! They are forever friends . . . always there, always in our hearts.

Momma’s Post , and Breezy’s Post (coming soon).

    Hello Emily Rose~

    Your blog is beautiful! I love the way you design…amazingly professional, and I was wondering if you could share any tips about how to learn HTML or if there are any books that taught you what you know…I am really hoping to change my jewelry blog so it looks more professional and would love to learn how to do what you do. But I totally and completely understand if you cannot share that information. I just thought I would ask!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Emily Rose,
    That is SO wonderful….
    awww, the rich joy of sweet fellowship
    there is nothing like it!! :)
    That is so nice that you watched “The
    Return of the Daughters”… it’s one
    of my favorite documentaries.:>) It is
    such a blessing to know other young ladies
    like you and your sister who are seeking
    to serve their families and preparing to
    be industrious homemakers!!

    Bless you dear sister in the Lord!
    With Much Love in Christ~ Miss Jen

    sounds like you learnt alot from each other… i have soooo much respect for you and Breezy for being trained as homemakers. i know that you are an inspiration for me and for many other women, hopefully one day i will be able to raise my kids to be like you :) (but i need to get the chance to be a homemaker first – at the moment i need to work)

    It looks like you guys had a lovely time! How neat to be able to actually “meet” a blogging friend. We got to do that twice on our trip over here, and it was fun both times!

    Have a very bright, very cheerful day!
