Today is Wednesday and we deliberately tried not to overbook ourselves. We made a trip to the bookstore at Armstrong State University to get our daughter Becky a tee shirt from her alma mater before they merge with Georgia Southern and change the name.
We also went to World Market. I love this store as it is a feast for the eyes. I was also interested in getting something interesting for the grands from Savannah that I thought they might like. We found toys, games, jewelry, and exotic foods.
We went to visit my mentor and one of my all time favorite people Anna Betz. I have always told Anna when I grow up I want to be her. We had a great visit and prayer with her. Saying goodbye is always hard but I know she prays for me daily. She baked us some cookies for our trip back home.
We went to the Wednesday night dinner at the Henderson Campus where I met up with Linda Vaccaro. We talked for hours on what God is doing in her life. I had "holy ghost bumps " from listening to her experiences. She is now a chaplain with the Billy Graham emergency ground crews. They go in after a disaster to minister to the people in that area. She will be amazing in this capacity.
Mr. Wonderful had several opportunities to minister to several young men at the church. He was quite excited at the opportunity and gratified that he could speak truth into their life and pray with them. We came home happy but exhausted.
We plan on leaving tomorrow morning to head back to Tennessee. The trip has been exhausting but also greatly rewarding. God is good all the time. All the time God is good.
Goodnight from Savannah!

Sandy and I went to Richmond Hill to meet up with her friends and former neighbors at a lovely place called " All Things Chocolate". Audrey Allen also joined us so it was a fun outing with new friends . The restaurant also features gluten free options that were amazing . I had a gluten free crepe filled with delicious chicken salad. Yummy!
Mr. Wonderful and I met up with Joe and Melinda Elkins at a coffee shop in Savannah Mall. We enjoyed catching up on their kids, retirement, and church activities. We had prayer together before we left and Melinda told us about some elderly friends of ours that we were concerned about but hadn't seen. I love how God either brought the people we were longing to see or at least answered our questions.
We had a feast at Audrey and Colin's house in Richmond Hill. The Archers ( Steve and Dana) were also there. Colin grilled steaks on the grill and Audrey had potatoes, corn on the cob, salads, and fresh asparagus. It was Dana' s birthday and Audrey had 4 cakes. We talked and talked and laughed and had the best time every . It made us very grateful to have such wonderful friends.
We didn't get back to Savannah till after midnight. Long days, short nights.

Mary Sue taught music to our kids at Windsor Forest High School and has forever ruined any hope of ever enjoying a high school choir again. Her choirs were so amazing . It was good to catch up on kids, life, ministry, and most of all compare adorable grandchildren. (personally, I think my grands won, hands down but I could be somewhat biased.)
After lunch we started working on our Savannah list of goodies. We went to The Byrd Cookie Company for key lime coolers and were delightfully surprised to find that they now have gluten free key lime coolers. We also picked up 2 bottles of Carrie Hillard's barbeque sauce for Becky in Canada.
Since we were already on the east side of Savannah our car just naturally headed over to Connie and Denny Shippy's house. We had a great visit with them and bought a copy of the book Connie illustrated for The Living Vine ( is called "The Hidden Treasure".
a crisis pregnancy center). The book
We had dinner with Lynn and Dave Stewart at Ruby Tuesdays. It turned out to be a 3 hour meeting. We went away encouraged, enlightened, challenged and amazingly grateful for their confidence, trust, in us personally and whatever ministry God was leading us to.
It was a very full day but one we never want to forget.
