We had the pleasure of fellowshipping with some friends from the past today!
Eric was the youth pastor at West Morris St. FM when we attended there a few years back. Carrie was his lovely helpmeet and consistently joyful chicklet. We started becoming friends with them right before they left our church...(waa waa) and moved back to Greenville, IL.
Carrie called me yesterday to tell me they would be in town for one of their past teen's weddings and they wanted to catch up. (I am so glad you called, Carrie). It was so great to see them and catch up. We hadn't seen them since before their last daughter, Emmy (which stands for A-DORA-BLE) was born 19 mos ago! They have Wyatt, who is 6, brown-eyed and dark olive skin like his momma, Sophia, 4, brown-eyed, dark olive skin again like her momma and Emmy, lighter hair, pretty light blue eyes and spittin' image of her dad (but prettier than you, Eric, of course :)).
And ya know what? They are moving out west (Colorado to be exact)! double waa waa. But it's a good thing. They are going to see where the Lord leads them and they have some good leads and good things are going to happen for these peeps. Ya know why? they are open to whatever the Lord would have for them. David and I have a new little saying for these lovelies..."The grass gets a little bit greener when the Jewett's are around." Good kids to tromp through this life serving Christ with! We love you guys! You make us want to be better servants!
They have a blog (yah!!)...check out their link in my buddies section! Keep these folks in your prayers too...lots of big changes on the horizon for them!
You guys rock. we are blessed to know you. Can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you!
