A Special Weekend

Every once in a while you make an acquaintance that you can sense will impact your life in a special way.

 Several months ago, Steve Sensenig at Theological Musings and I began engaging in discussion on various topics. There were some things where we have differing opinions, many others where we are of like mind. Regardless of the outcome of the discussions, we both felt a kindred spirit. Several times we discussed how it would be nice to be able to get together and fellowship.

This weekend it happened. Steve and his lovely wife, Christy, and their son Dylan drove all the way from Boone, NC, to Cairo, GA. After arriving about 1:00 A.M. Sunday, they ministered in music to the congregation at Pine Park Baptist Church. That afternoon, they came to our house for dinner and one of the most refreshing times of fellowship I have had in a long time.

I have mentioned this recently, but it bears repeating. Steve is an excellent pianist. He has several CD’s available that will bless you. You can listen to some samples at his Worship Keys site.

They are on their way back home now, but when they get there and read this Iwant y’all to know you are welcome here anytime. (They drank enough sweet tea while here to become honorary South Georgians!) 🙂

This was one of the highlights of my thus-far brief blogging career. I look forward to perhaps having the opportunity to meet some more of you at some time.

  1. That sounds wonderful. I’m looking forward to meeting a fellow blogger in January. I can hardly wait.

    I’m so glad that he enjoyed that sweet tea…probably had to make a few stops along the way. 🙂

  2. Gordon-
    Thanks so much for the lovely thoughts…we feel just as refreshed (even though we just arrived home from a 10 hour drive!) We can’t wait to see you all again very soon. We’ll be encouraging you all to make plans to come to Boone in October!
    Love to your sweet family-
    Christy 🙂

  3. Jealousy and envy! Is that what you intended to provoke here? 😉

  4. Beverly, I understand that he did make a few stops, but it was for Starbucks.

    Christy, October would be great. We will see how things work out.

    KC, the only thing that would have made it better would have been having you here too, brother.

  5. Gordon, thanks again for a wonderful weekend. I know we’ve said it on our blogs, and Christy has already commented here, but we were very blessed to meet you and your wonderful family (including PPBC). I’m pretty exhausted today after the drive back, but it was worth it! We look forward to more fellowship in the future.

    In the meantime, I look forward to more interactions here online. You are a blessing!

    steve 🙂

  6. fyi, steve grew up on sweet tea, although my understanding of the southern tea is that it’s very sweet. while ours was sweetened and homemade, it wasn’t overly sweet. i guess PA could be considered southern? 😉

  7. Here in South GA we like a little tea with our sugar.

    I suppose we could cut PA some slack since it is in the southern part of Yankee land. 😉

  8. Yeah, I did grow up on sweet tea, but southern style sweet tea is exactly like Gordon described – “a little tea with our sugar”. And ever since becoming a southerner, I’ve gotten hooked on the southern style.

    I probably need to lay off the sweet tea here (it’s about all I drink here at home and whenever we’re out), but it’s one pleasure I have trouble giving up. 🙂

  9. Just had to chime in and remind y’all that it’s one word: sweetea. Mercy! It sounds like a bunch of Yankees in here.
    🙂

  10. what a treat for you to be able to get together!

  11. Cameron, really, down here, all you have to say is “tea” and everyone knows what you mean. You only have to specify if it is unsweet.

    JG, it was a treat indeed.

  12. hey I love sweettea 😉

    and hope y’all have a great christmas!
    and if you got time I, put an link on my blog you might wanta checkout.
    peace!

  13. your special weekend is making others feel jealous. Great get together.
