The Lunch

this is from last month, but we have so busy that I have not had a chance to post it yet. I knew that my dear friend Krista was in town with her husband on a spur of the moment

trip from their current home in Belgium. I also heard that she could meet for one day during the lunch hour and of course I had a chiropracter appt that I could not cancel. I was super bummed, but was just excited that they were home visiting family and friends. The morning of "the Lunch" I took noah and sydnie to school and stopped home for an hour...i checked my phone and there had been a call from my chiropracters office, they needed to cancel my appt that day!!!! I immediately called my friend Dawn Denice and told her I thought I could make it. She told me that i had no option but to come. So I called a friend to see if she would be willing to pick Noah up from school and have a play date so that I could drive to Portland. I was super excited and when I showed up at Chevy's for lunch...the best part was that Krista had no idea that I was coming. The look on her face was so worth it. It was so fun to reconnect and catch up. I was so moved by her story that she told close to the end of our meal. On the drive from Clackamas she had said a prayer that whoever was suppose to show up, that God would allow them to and that it would happen according to His plan. It was such an insight into how God works, because the Holy Spirit worked in her to pray and then God's actions were already set in motion. AMAZING.
