Friends, let me introduce to you the AMAZING Meredith from Life at 7000 Feet, my amiga online for
I can't even begin to describe how much this visit meant to me... Meredith has been such a source of encouragement, a sisterly sounding board, an inspiration for intentional homemaking, and a godly example that when she picked me up at the Denver Airport I forgot for a minute that it was the first time I'd ever seen her in person.
Mer had to move heaven and earth to make the meetup happen- her family sacrificed on a buncha levels- and I was oh-so-grateful for their willingness to give up their wife, mother, and gift cards to support this. I know it wasn't easy, but I felt so loved and appreciated as we sat for what seemed like forever at a Mimi's cafe chatting easily, going from deep topic to light and back again.
What a treat it is to know that there are some people in this world who are every bit as genuine, beautiful, real, honest, funny, generous, and purposeful as they appear to be on the surface. Thank you, Meredith, for dropping everything to see the shivering SoCal girl IRL- hope someday you'll find yourself at 1400 feet someday... I'd love to return the blessing.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
Reward her for all she has done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
