Thoughts at Random

Hello friends,
First off, I just finished reading The Restorer's Journey a few moments ago. It was really, really good, but to agree with Flinn, there should definitely be another one. When I go back to my mom's house tomorrow, I'll start reading it aloud to her and my brother. I've been thinking about how much I treasure that time...the three of us just feel so close when we're reading together. Most of the time we're in the car when I read aloud to them, but sometimes we curl up on the couch or on my mom's bed to read. It's a really neat feeling. When I'm reading to them, or Mom's reading to us, I can't help thinking how much I love them both, and how glad I am that God put me on this earth with them.
Secondly, I was just lying in bed the other night and I got to thinking about what it would be like for all of my Young Christian Force friends to meet...then I realized something. I will meet you someday. It may not be until we're all in Heaven together, but I will meet you. This may not sound like anything special to some of you, but it just hit me really hard. Now I look forward to that day more than ever. Once I realized that, this warm feeling curled in around me. It was reassuring, comforting, wonderful. I will see you all one day. I can't wait.
Well guys, thanks for listening to my random ramblings.

I cannot wait for the day that I stand before my King, with my friends and family and you guys, praising him for ever and ever and ever...sigh. What a day that will be!

I can't wait, though my mom thinks we should all try to get together at some writer's conference or something.

That is an interesting idea about a writer's conference thing. But where would it be? Our locations range from all over the North American continent. Ian resides all the way in Canada, you (Araken) are up north, I'm way down here in Arkansas, Shelby Marie is in Virginia, and Kaili is in Washington (I think). I don't know where everyone else lives, though. It would be a bit hard. We could always pray about it. God can do anything:) In life or not, we'll see each other some day!

Ian said...

WE could meet in Australia, or on Mars, or something like that...

One question, though. How would we know we each other are?? Hmmm...

Elliot Reed said...

Well, I reside in Eclecticville, which I will say is central time in the North (just to give a general idea...)

Shelby Marie said...

That writer's conference is an interesting idea...but we all do live very far away from each other--I suppose I live closest to Sapphira...Either way, I'll see you all sometime!!!

Write On!!!

That'd be so cool if we could all meet each other! Of course, we do live all over the place... But, as Sapphira said, Nothing is impossible with God! If he wants us to get together, then you can bet your life we will get together sometime!

I have NO CLUE what any of you looks like, so yeah, that could be a problem... We could meet in, say, Chile, or Niger, or Congo, or maybe India. perhaps... Maybe on some missions trip! That'd be cool! If we all went on a mission trip together!
