This road I'm on ... be it to Elwood or New Castle, Liberty or Hagerstown, Brookville or Mooreland, Springport or -- Muncie on Tuesday -- it's a sweet road, one filled with interesting women, friends from different times of life or new ones altogether.
I spent a chunk of Tuesday with the women in my friend Betty Brown's International Circle of First Baptist Church of Muncie. I sat in on their business meeting, shared with them in prayer, laughter, sweet treats around the table, and plenty of lovely girl talk. I love the company of women. The age of those women matters none to me.
I met Betty when she was my (non-denominational) Bible Study Fellowship leader a few years ago and we've stayed in touch since! Thank you, Betty, for having me in to talk about my new book, That Sweet Place: At Home in the Heartland. And thank you Betty's friends for listening and even picking up some copies.
Wishing an early Happy Birthday to Betty. She will be 85 on July 9 and she wears it well. VERY well!
