Meeting Face to Face

The circle of life.

     Well this past Monday, I had the pleasure of meeting one of my facebook friends and a loyal blog follower.. Cathy.  She is my dad's college roommate's sister.  Isn't it strange how the circle of friends in our lives evolves.  She was twelve back then.
      Cathy is doing a peanut butter drive for a food pantry/outreach center so my donation sparked our reason to meet face to face.  She also came bearing gifts, 2 necklaces.  One was from Amazina Ministries, where women in Uganda make them.  The program helps keep them from a life of prostitution, digging in the trash and alcohol brewing. All of which are means of survival there.  I hope to share the story each time I wear the pretty purple necklace.
     Our visit was an encouragement to both of us.  We both knew about each other but a face to face meeting is so much more insightful and rewarding.
      As true it will be when we meet our Maker that we've learned about.  What a glorious day that will be!
1 Corinthians 13:12  ''For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.''
