Hello, Kingsville!

Evelyn with some of her very cool stuff.

Do you have a place that you go to every year? And it starts to feel like home? Welcome to my Kingsville. I’ve been to First Baptist Church in Kingsville, OH for three years now, and they are just sweet people. Yes, this was the site of the famous outdoor concert where my car broke down a mile from the venue, so we hiked it in July heat and 3 inch heels, and as I was singing the words, “Goodbye, goodbye!” I saw my own car being towed past the park where the concert was! Mmm, hmm. We can’t make these things up! And then, those lovely people found me a ride back to Columbus, 3 hours away. And THEN, when I went back a week later to collect my car (broken upper ball joint, glad that didn’t happen on the freeway!!!), those same lovely people had paid for the repair. Really, you can’t get much better than my friends in Kingsville.

This time, I got to stay with Evelyn. You see, Kingsville doesn’t really have a hotel, so Evelyn offered to put us up, and she is just fabulous. And her house was literally an incredible museum and auction house rolled into one – so many interesting things to look at! I was really glad the kids weren’t there, though – so many interesting things to break. 🙂

Love you, Kingsville.

    Aw… We love you too! 🙂 Hope all is well. I’ve been reading your parents’ book in the mornings before work. It’s so good and powerful that I have a hard time putting it down; learned quite a bit. 🙂

    Praying for you all. 🙂
