Next Door

She invited us to church .....AND gave me a hug.

We met our new neighbor tonight! Yes.....she invited us to her house of worship.....embraced me....and called me Honey. Truly a woman after my own heart-right next door. I have big plans for our relationship. Waving while on the lawn mower, watching her house while she is away, baking things for her, having her over for tea or dinner, and having nice conversations in our driveways. This is the first time in our married life that we have a neighbor who's dwelling isn't attached to ours. We actually live in a real house now - with a real yard - and real neighbors. What joy.

Thank you, Lord.
