The Party

Can you believe it!  She was a no show.  I feel certain Noah did not miss her.  After all, he invited everybody he knows to the party... his basketball, baseball and football team mates... throw in all the aunts, uncles, cousins and half the neighborhood kids...  . whew!  I am tired just thinking about it.

What's this?  A picture has come on my blog and now I have proof she's at the beach.  Who are these people?  I know them well.  Yes sir, from left to right we have Cece, Suzanne and there she is--my Grandmother.  To top it all off, you can clearly see she is having a good time.  Just look at their faces, those suntans and that beautiful water in the background.  Oh my, I plan to have a serious talk with her tomorrow when she gets home.  As for now, I am exhausted and....I have to go to school tomorrow.  Wait just a minute.  She has sent me a note.

Dear Annye,

I miss you terribly.  I can hardly wait to get home.  There is so much to tell--lots of new beach stories.  And, guess what?  I found myself down here and got that Rest I have been looking for.  Friday morning I awoke humming a lovely song, one you know well.  We sing it at church often.  It goes something like this:  We thirst for You; we search for You.  In a dry and barren land, we're longing for Your hand to guide us to a place where You can cleanse us with Your rain...Baptize us once again.  We thirst forYou.....*

I love you so much,
