I am so very blessed to have many good friends who love me. Plus, two sisters who would walk through fire for me if I needed them too. No really. They would.

Well, my Good friend Shannon and I usually get together Saturday evening and have coffee and talk. About our week, our husbands, our peeps, our jobs, what God is trying to do in our lives, and if we are fighting it or letting Him...

We often talk over each other. No, let me correct that. We always talk over each other. And we laugh sooooo much. We didn't get a chance this weekend to have coffee, so I thought I'd "talk" here instead. You know, just to get it out.

Sweet Blue Eyed Husband will be so happy I didn't talk his tired ear off. Sometimes if Shannon and I haven't had coffee for a bit, or if I haven't talked Ericas ear off on her way to work, I might catch myself rambling on to poor Blue Eyes. He gives me one of those blue eyed looks that say, "Honey, I love you but don't you have a girlfriend for this?"

Hope your comfy and grabbed your coffee. Here I go.

I got to hold the cutest baby boys tonight at our church supper. These boys are twins and it just blessed me to hold and love on them. They and their parents have been through so much this past year. They are doing well, and are healthy!!! Mom is now pregnant with their little sister due in October. Praise God!!!

My sister is only here for another week. I love having her here. I miss her when she goes back to Florida. I get why she lives there and hasn't yet come home. I just wish it were different. Some day...

Ben got his orders a couple of days ago. Germany it is! All is well for him, and he is home Friday July 31st, for two weeks at least!!! We are so thrilled and excited to see him.

Sweet Baby Girl is safely home from a wonderful week at Girls Camp. She hugged on me tons, and said she really missed me!!!!! Yup, she did. (HUGE SIGH)... Thank you ladies at Girls Camp for all you do. It truly is priceless in my sweet baby girls life and I am one grateful mom.

We had a terrific BBQ cook off tonight at church. So many people came! The ribs were marvelous and the rest of the food was scrumptious. Our church body is very special. I feel blessed to be in fellowship, serving Him, and each other, in the body. Yeah, we are blessed.

Now that I'm on Face Book and I have this blog, I don't really check my emails at all. Yikes!

Sophie doesn't smell anymore. Don't know what that dog got into!

And finally, I love this house so much, it feels like home already. This neighborhood is quiet, quaint, friendly... God knew we needed to be here.

I go off to bed tonight thanking the God I love for everything He has given me. You folks, are on that list. You patiently read my ramblings and sometimes even take time to comment. If you were here right now, I'd pour you another cup of Joe, and we'd be laughing!

Hugs from Maine

Well I for one enjoyed starting my day having coffee with you! I don't have a good friend to meet with regularly like you do....consider yourself blessed to have that! But I'm still grateful for my on-line friends. :)

Glad you are feeling so settled in your new home. Just two weeks now until we move ourselves and I can't wait...What you said about God knowing that's exactly where you need to be, will fit us to a "T"!

Have a blessed day!

If you ever get a chance to visit Ben in Germany, take it. Southern Germany is stunning.

My sister is in Germany with her husband who is in the army. Do you know where he'll be stationed? If it's in the same area, I could give them a heads up to meet him.

What a great chat! So glad you are enjoying your new place. Sounds like a good move for you. I've gotten those looks from my hubby before as well. So important for us to have some chatty girlfriends to get together with over coffee!
