Meeting Lisa! What A Joy!

I was given another blessed opportunity on Friday, July 31 when we continued our family vacation in Orlando, Florida for a couple of days.

I had the pleasure of having breakfast with Lisa Shaw of Sharing Life with Lisa and we spent a couple of hour together.

I can't begin to tell you what a breath of fresh air she is...I could have sat there all day and soaked her in like a sponge!!!

She is as dynamic in person as she is on her blog...there is nothing fake about this powerful, godly woman!

I would have loved to be able to spend all day with Lisa but with it being our family vacation and we had tickets to hit 3 parks in 2 days...I had to keep it to a couple of hours.

I wanted to just keep hugging her, listening to her and sharing the similarities of our lives together.

It still amazes me how God is bringing Christian ladies together from all across the country and how much we have in common. Many of our lives are so much alike, our joys, pains, ups, downs, heartaches and victories...from our past to our present.

Only God could put something this amazing together...through blogging. To honestly think in January 2008...I didn't know what blogging was or how it worked.

If you would have told me that one day I would develop true friendships via the Internet, drive 13 hours to meet and stay with some of these ladies...I would have told you that you were crazy.

I am so thankful for being introduced to blogging and the wonderful ladies that I now call friends. I plan to continue to strive to meet more in real life and I know those meetings will be just as memorable as the ones that I had over our vacation this year.

I have met 4 precious ladies so far and they are:

1. Laurie Ann - A Magnolia's Heart Beats

2. Kim - Homesteaders Heart

3. Debra - Clothed in Scarlet

4. Lisa - Sharing Life with Lisa

Meeting Lisa was truly a joy for time, I want to meet her husband and daughter plus spend much more time together. I'll be back ladies...I promise.

I love you, Kim, Debra, Lisa and Laurie each hold a very special place in my heart!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. Aww sweet sister you blessed my heart with your warm words. It was my pleasure meeting you, Roger and your son -- truly my pleasure.

    You better come back girl! Bring your bathing suit and we'll hit my pool and share about GOD and I'll BBQ some chicken and steak and you can make a good salad in my kitchen and we'll hang out and talk about EVERYTHING especially JESUS and my hubby and daughter would love to meet you.

    Love you sister.

  2. Girl, I am so jealous -- well, in a good way. :o) I love Lisa too! I'm so glad you two got a chance to meet! And of course precious Debra and Laurie Ann! (I'm' sure Kim is precious too -- I just haven't chatted with her much.)

    What a great trip!

  3. I love you too, my sister, my friend. It was my joy to hug your neck and walk down to the beach with you and experience some Sonshine with you!

    Big big hugs!

  4. That is so neat. i am so happy for you to have met Lisa. She does seem so precious on her blog. I love her dearly. You are one blessed lady this summer:)

  5. I cannot wait to meet Lisa in October.

  6. What a privilege and a joy. GOD is indeed at work. He is awesome. I recently met a fellow blogger, Leslie from Writing for the Lord! GOD BLESS and I look forward to our meeting one day.

  7. Jenn,

    I am beyond being thrilled with you getting to meet all these wonderful women. I could only imagine that Lisa was as wonderful as her blog portrays. She just streams forth all the blessings of God, imagine just how amazing it will be in God's presence if Lisa is just a piece of the pie?

    Oh Jenn, one of these days we should all find a time and place to get together, a Blogger's family reunion.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  8. I wish I could have had breakfast with you two that morning!! I know I'll probably get to meet sweet Lisa sometime this year!
    Love you my sweet friend and you know our door is always open,(except at night!) LOL

  9. I too am SO amazed at God's leading, and the blessings that truly more than I could have ever asked or imagined through blogging.
