The day in south Georgia was warm, over 75 degrees in February. I know colder days will return, but this day of spring was like spring to my soul.
We have our third social worker visit, and I had plans to do some fundraising work this afternoon, spending a lot of time on the computer.
I'm so glad God had different plans. When we had just begun our interview with the SW, someone I dearly love drove up.
It was Brother Ronnie! He's in town from far north Tennessee. I've posted about how special he is to our family here.
He is in town at a neighboring church encouraging couples at a marriage conference. We spent a couple of hours visiting with him at my parents' house between separate interviews with the SW. We made plans to order pizza and continue our fellowship time when Brother Bobby called. Josie-Tatum had spent the night with the Russells, so they came over and enjoyed the pizza, too.
Caleb and Casie came before the SW visit was over.
And, we had a house full for lunch.
Not my plan....
God's idea was FAR BETTER!
Then, the afternoon grew more fun. Brother Bobby and Brother Ronnie sort of have a regular practical joke time when he is in town. So, I joined Brother Bobby in an act of crime...only I took my girls with me.
Brother Ronnie went to the motel to take a nap.
We followed after we thought he might be sleeping peacefully.
I posted this photo on his FB wall, so he would wonder what was going on.
Then, we set about "decorating" his beautiful Navigator. (Good thing this is a small town, and we know the owners and managers of the hotel, so they didn't call the police.)
And, if all that fun was not enough....
I went to Wal-Mart.
When I came home, there were two beautiful black trucks in the driveway. The two stooges are both home!!!!
Not the day I planned.
But, so much BETTER!!!!
