visit to Canberra in January I have been wanting to go back to her fine company and beautiful part of Australia... I managed to get a couple of days free this week. And though we were pressed for time we managed to pack a great deal in! Many many cups of jasmine, black and earl grey tea, sandwiches, homemade cookies, roasts, hot chocolate (that knocked us out for a good 5 hours), conversations about love and faith and life late into the night; we laughed and cried and reminisced...
We rifled through 50 year-old women's magazines and laughed hysterically at the way things were...
I spent time with her precious children; talking, drawing, laughing, rolling in daisies, finding animals,And on the long train trip home as the night closed in
I remembered how blessed we are -
I cried for my rugged country,
in knowing places like Hillview -
I cried in joy
for the future,
in finding kindred spirits,
in meeting the love of my life -
and in knowing
and loving Him,
more and more each day.
