I had the extreme pleasure of meeting one yesterday, Diane from Partners in Prayer for our Prodigals. It’s been about two years since we first “met” in cyberspace. It was (as Diane put it) meeting an “old” friend for the first time. We met at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. It is a beautiful resort hotel.
We talked and shared life. It was great and felt so natural. She was as lovely a person as she appeared to be on her blog. Her heart for her family, God and His people was very apparent in our conversation. She started a new business venture and I think it’s wonderful that she’ll able to pursue her dreams. She’s a very intelligent lady that speaks with grace and humility.
I’m so glad we met for lunch. If you ever get a chance to meet a blog friend in person, do it. I hope that she is the first of many that I get to meet.
Here are some pictures from the hotel. It’s quite lovely as you can tell from the shot taken from the outside.
Here’s a picture of Diane in front of a longhorn.
Look at the pretty palm trees. (Tina, I took this just for you.)I loved this train village.
