Hi! It's been a long time since I wrote. Last weekend, Darlene and I joined about thirty others from our college on a bus ride to spend the day in New York City. We love visiting the city. We took a carriage ride through Central Park, road the subways, and visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. We shopped around in the Apple Store, American Girl Doll Store, had Starbucks in Trump Tower, ate at Roxi's Deli and had the best burgers ever at a place called The Counter.
It was a fabulous sunny day for sight seeing. We spent most of the day with Rick and Judy Dunham, a couple that work at the college with us. It was a great day in the city enjoying the sights and fellowship with the Dunhams. They had never spent time like this in NYC so much of it was new to them.
Have you ever noticed that some experiences are just more fun when you share them with others? God created us to live and work and grow in community with other believers. There are some things that are fun to do alone, but even coloring seems more fun when you do it with a friend. Darlene and I have been to the city many times. It is always more fun to see things when we are with somebody who is experiencing them for the first time.
It's Thanksgiving week and you will have opportunity to enjoy spending time with family and friends. I pray that you will have fun visiting and celebrating all of the good things God has done for you this year.
