Dinner With RJW

Whoa!! How fun and exciting!! :)

The dinner was great. Honestly I was so excited by their company that I barely noticed the food, which was great too. Thank you Ryan and Jamie. You both are amazing. I am quiet and hard to discern on the outside, but inside I am glowing lol.

The initial seeing each other was really scary for me, but we quickly warmed up with each other. Ryan isn't 6 foot tall!! He is taller than I am though, which you will see in the pictures we took tonight that Jamie will post on her blog soon enough. I'm a small guy.

Thank you to everyone who prayed for our dinner. It was wonderful. Ryan, Jamie and their daughters, Devon and Savannah were so comfortable to be around. Devon and Savannah are highly intelligent and very funny. OH! We saw a guy with a tail too!! I sort of stared and giggled and kept to myself but Jamie, bold as she is, told the guy she loved it and that she wanted one which was hilarious. We should have gotten a picture, but I guess no one thought of it at the time. Darn it.

I can't wait to visit them again. I hope to in November to visit their home and their farm. Only Devon won't be there though. :( It was so cool to be around someone my age who is a Christian and UNDERSTANDS GRACE. Whoa! But I would love to meet Reagan. He sounds very fun. He likes Eragon and Halo, so he is my style.

OH! I forgot to tell him, but I will say it on here for you to read to him, Jamie. Tell Ryan he has a has a good handshake! LOL! I appreciate a good handshake. And thank you again so much for the Rob Bell books! I'm excited to read them! I like his style of writing too. It looks like a good, smooth read.

Tonight was wonderful. I'll never forget it. I love them!!!

How right you are!!! I love being with our family. It is awesome!! I was amazed by how friendly they are with each other and how they talked about Jesus with each other with such enthusiasm. It was beautiful. They are beautiful and kind and generous. It's scary but wonderful!!
