Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

It's Time For Girl's Weekend!

Every year some of my very best friends - old friends - very old friends - come for the weekend.  We graduated from high school together in 1964.  Gasoline was $.25 a gallon, McDonald's hamburgers were $.15 each, and we all wore wheat colored jeans and button down collar shirts every chance we got.  But not at school.  At school we were dresses or skirts, no pants.  Pants were forbidden.

We had so much fun then and we still do.  We might not look the same but we laugh the same!

Sometimes we act our age.







Sometimes we don't!








And today's the day we do it all again - I can't wait!

Cherish those moments, my friends are all gone or moved. I lost one to cancer and the other to religion, the other one lives far away in the Southern hemisphere, one more in Finland and we have not seen each other in yrs..Enjoy it..

It sounds fabulous!! I just returned from a Double Date Birthday Trip with my best friend from high school and our husbands. It is great to have friends who have memories of you in a younger body, but only see the "You" that is always there! Hope you have grins and giggles until you can't stay awake anymore!!
