Default Summer Holidays/Vacation

Our summer holidays this year have been a two-way street. Rita and I spent a few days in Sussex on the south coast of England. We went up the new viewing platform in Brighton, and had a ride on the "Bluebell Line" steam railway. Our train was hauled be a restored steam engine dating from the 1890's. We were also able to visit some long-standing friends in the area, and generally "chill out".

This week, we are back home and have been receiving visitors. A very dear American friend has been visiting over here with her husband. She lived near our church for a year while on a training course over here a few years ago, and was a great support and help in our church. She is back in England this week with her husband doing some sight-seeing and meeting-up again with old friends. This lady is now a Pastor in a Lutheran church in Madison Wisconsin.

What a joy it is to go away and relax for a few days, and also to renew acquaintances with old friends, enjoy Christian fellowship, and catch up with all the news in one another's lives.
