Fine Linen meets Grateful Prayer

It has been so long since I have blogged! 

Back at the beginning of the summer my lovely blogging friend Lorraine from www.gratefulprayerthankfulheart.com contacted me to say that in September she would be travelling to the UK with her husband John and could we meet up?  

I was so excited and we planned our meet up and day together carefully. Together with my hubby we drove to Kent, picked up John and Lorraine from Tonbridge Wells train station and took them to Scotney Castle which is a National Trust property. 

We had a great day together, it was as if we had met up on a regular basis over the years, we got on so well. We do have a lot in common, big family, each have a child who has adopted a child/children and we all have a faith in God which was so lovely to share with each other. 

The sun shone, the sky was blue and formed a beautiful setting for Scotney, I think this is the only NT property in Kent that we hadn't already visited and so was a first for us too. We had a lovely lunch sitting outside in the sunshine and walked around the buildings and gardens, taking lots of photos. And chatting non stop :)  

We ended our day sitting in the car, sharing gifts for one another and praying together for our families before dropping John and Lorraine back to the station. 

I have enjoyed reading Lorraine's blog over a number of years and to be able to meet her and John in the flesh was an experience we will always treasure.
