A quick hello from Miami!
Adding a picture of our son Joël here, who turned 17 on the 14th of May! He was in Romania at the time and we are so thankful that his life has found meaning and hope in Jesus Christ!
Arrived Sunday afternoon at our Hotel on Miami beach after a 12 hours journey - three of those hours we were waiting in queues just to get into the U.S.!! Security is huge these days and quite a strain! I still feel I have jet-lag after four days! Pure determination got me to a Michael's and I found the beautiful craft things I was so longing for!! Some girls from the Hero Art's group had sent me some coupons for craft shops but I couldn't get the Michael's coupon printed out, it was invalid - so I thought well I will ask for it..... well they refused to give it to me.. until my DH came to pick me up and flashed a smile at the lady at the cash register and I got 40 percent off of a paper punch!!
(Me and Marabel)
We have had contact with Marabel Morgen - you remember the lady who wrote the book 'The Total Woman'? She lives here with her DH in Miami - they have a beautiful home and took us out to dinner at Joey's Stone Crab - that is apparently a very famous restaurant - it was such an experience!!
We have a beautiful room looking out over the Ocean and only hear the waves as we fall asleep!
I find the USA always a bit overwhelming! It takes me days to get used to everything! But it is SO GOOD to have a TOTAL BREAK with DH - brings alot of tiredness and other 'stuff' to the surface which you don't always know is there!
