A Guest From Poland

We had a wonderful time tonight at the home of our friends, Jackie and Lou…

I’ve been experimenting with some different settings on my camera so not all of my photos are good…sorry…it’s that learning curve thingy.

The company was a wonderful mix of some truly wonderful people…one of those special times that just happened to work out beautifully…

image

Our hostess, my best friend Jackie cooked a gourmet meal that we ate every bite of…

image

A delightful couple who are new friends fit right in perfectly…

Paul, a good sport to take all of the teasing from us, enjoyed Jackie’s meal.

image This young man is a missionary from Poland and was a wonderfully personable addition to our little party. We learned so much from him about how God is changing his life as well as those he is ministering to. Funny, articulate and devoted is how I would describe his personality.

After dinner conversation with our host, Lou was stimulating and fun.

This is a shot of the dining room of this beautiful century old home that has been renovated by my friends. This is Jackie’s childhood home.

Look at the chandelier that was above our dining room table…ooohhh…isn’t it beautiful!!!

Michael, has anyone noticed his taste in shirts???

This man is a great representative for the country of Poland.

I’ll be posting more photos of this lovely home in the future because it is such a special home.

  2. This was such a nice post in so many ways; we saw new friendships being formed and old friendships being nurtured and we saw a beautiful home.

  3. Oh Becky...
    Thank you for sharing this evening. I could hear the laughter as I browsed the pictures, and even smell the wonderful food. Goodness it was lovely. That chandelier was breath taking, and sparkled like the sun. I so loved it.

    I love this post sweetie. Such a beautiful home. I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures of Jackie's home. What a wonderful place to grow up in. I loved it.

    Country hugs...Sherry

  6. It does look like a special home and the chandelier is gorgeous. I am glad that everyone had a fun evening. I was in Poland last year for the first time and everyone was so nice to us.

  8. Hi Mrs. Becky!

    I miss ya'll!

    You got some beautiful photos of the dining room. (We all thought Mr. Smith was going to have a heart attack when Daddy told him to paint the ceiling pink!)

    If I could pick up Momma's home and move it (and ya'll) up here to VA, I would do it in a heartbeat. Looks like ya'll had a wonderful time as usual.

    I'm sorry I'll miss Thanksgiving this year but I'm sure you will take lots of beautiful photos for me. I'll see you at Christmas!

    Love,
    Francie

  9. Wow, what great pictures!! I especially love the one of the chandelier... how did you get that beautiful shot? How fascinating to get to dine with a missionary from Poland. That's just not something you get to do everyday. Thanks for your sweet comment about my poinsettia painting.

    Blessings,
    Christi
