For food when many walk in hunger,
For faith when many walk in fear,
For friends when many walk alone,
We give thanks to you O God and
May all that have life be delivered from suffering.
The next day we met then at Café Nero for a cuppa before they got on the road. We were having such an interesting discussion about the American South (Last year Lorna took a trip to Nashville as well as further down south) that I think we didn’t want it to end. But they said goodbye and drove home and we walked home in the drizzle (I was back wearing my long pink winter coat again).
There were also three (count ‘em three) jars of homemade jellies and jams. Yes please!!!!
There were fabric remnants from their fabric stashes that had long lain unused and were looking for someone to think of a use for them. Me! Pick me! I can use them!
There were card making crafty bits like fancy paper and little wooden doodads which filled me with so many ideas I could hardly wait to make something.
There were also several craft kits and projects and game ideas --plastic fillable Easter eggs anyone??? Oh the fun we will have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There were thoughtful cards from several of our friends back in England that I will treasure because of their kind messages.
It would have been a perfect weekend with just their company but I gotta say…the pressies were really nice! Food and crafts and books! Oh, I forgot the books!!
Lorna found some a trilogy of interesting books all about Merlin the magician (who was born in a cave outside Carmarthen dontcha know!) in a charity shop and bought them for me. How kind.
It truly let me know how blessed we are--with good food, good friends and a shared faith that draws us together.
Diolch o galon! Heartfelt thanks!
