Linny and me
Sharing a hug and a laugh
One day there was a need and we spoke on the phone for a long while.
She and I shared similar pasts and were in similar situations.
Among other things.
We have talked and texted now for a few years. I also have the privilege of facilitating her prayer group, The Knee Team, which has been a blessing for me. I never thought much about meeting in person, since I was very ill when we began our friendship, and was not leaving home except to see the doctors. But God had other plans. Joel and I were both healed and life has been quite an adventure of thanksgiving ever since! Joel and I were both so thankful we were able to get together with the Saunders!

What a delight they were!
So, a visit to Linny's world was on our list and God opened the doors. We were able to fellowship with them, enjoying a meal together, and ending our time in prayer. As I said before, it was surreal to sit with the family and break bread. I found myself very reflective, emotional, and so grateful that God guided us over the years for us to be friends. Only God!
I am showcasing Ruby here because Linny just finished writing her
book about Ruby's amazing journey.
I will let everyone know when it comes out.
I can hardly wait to read it!
Isn't God amazing? He loves us so much and is in every detail of our lives. Who would have thought that Linny's life in Colorado and my life in Iowa would bring us together in Arizona! I just love how God orchestrates our lives, bringing joy and blessings into our days. weaving the tapestry of our journeys into a beautiful work of art! To God be the glory!!
