Rhema Connections

I hung out with some new friends today.

 Arland and Barbara met my dad and stepmom several years ago when my dad officiated their vow renewal ceremony. 

They reached out to me after my dad saw they were here for Winter Bible on Facebook. (Thanks, Dad!)

We ate lunch together, along with one of Arland’s close friends who is also a fellow Rhema graduate. 

Talk about a great time!

After our time of fellowship, I was encouraged and excited. 

It’s always good to make new friends because friendship is designed for each person to add something to the other person’s life. 

Future Rockstar?

I spent the afternoon wandering around the mall with my friend Nichole. 

There were a TON of people at Woodland Hills Mall! I even got stuck in some traffic. This is the first time I’ve sat in traffic since moving. 

It was fun to window shop, though, and I even rode a hover board.

Not sure I’m ready for a future of hover boarding…it’s just better for me to stay on the ground. 

Nichole and I then drove over to Mardel, a Christian bookstore. Our friend Andrew lives close to there, so he joined us. 

The three of us talked  about books and had a great time getting to know each other more. 

Andrew wanted to go into The Guitar Store. He showed us around and played a Fender Strat. 

I’ve always wanted to play the guitar, but today Andrew encouraged me to play  a bass guitar. 

I tried one out and it really fits me much better than a regular guitar!

I almost bought one, too! (It was only $16o.)

Don’t worry. I fought the impulse. 

This is not a decision to make on a whim, but it got me excited about learning how to play again. 

Who knows? Maybe you’re following the blog of a future rockstar? 


Future rockstar or not, my Saturday was awesome. It was fun to hang out with friends.
