Never Met A Stranger

Have you ever met someone and immediately felt like you've known them forever?  That's just how I feel this morning.  I'm typing this post from the guest bedroom of some of those very people right now.  I mentioned a tag along trip with my hubby yesterday….only I had no idea how wonderful the trip would be.

I have had the most fun!

The plan was for us to stay in an apartment (I use that term, very loosely) at the home of the company owners.  When we arrived, we were told that someone else needed the apartment (a new family — that is waiting to get into their house) and that we would be staying in their home with them in their guest room.

Awkward, right?

Not at all.  Steve & Sandy Hageman aren't the type to let you feel weird.  They welcomed us in with open arms and full access to their beautiful home.  We had planned to just work and quietly slip in and out but they wouldn't have any of that.  Dinner was a throw together (and very delicious) meal of pork loins, potatoes, green beans and Indiana corn-on-the-cob.  The new family staying out in the apartment joined us and it was one of the best evenings ever.

All impromptu!

I love meeting new people and this was definitely an encounter specifically arranged by God.  Thank you, Lord.  You know just how to bless me–just when I need it most.

Did I mention that I'm in the middle of nowhere?  Remington, Indiana is known for its farms, miles of land and those fancy new windmills you see as you speed by on I-65.  Only, from where I'm sitting…..I can see them up close and personal for miles and miles.  They're a little daunting, or impressive.

The lesson I've learned from this whole trip is never miss an opportunity to make new friends.  Not that I would ever do that (people claim I could make friends with a rock).

Well, I'm off.  My new friends and I are heading to West Lafayette to shop and see the sights.  I hope your Wednesday is full of new friendships and hospitality!


Hebrews 13:2 says, Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

 I'm convinced that angels have been entertaining me for the last few days!
