Jet Setting Around the US

After leaving the D.C. area and seeing some wonderful friends there--being dined by many--childhood friends, church friends from long ago, musician friends, and Tolkien Elven language friends, I headed to North Carolina, then back to Atlanta, stayed with more friends, this time from Southern, and then jetted over to a "very" sunny and hot, hot, hot California [115 degrees]! We have heard it said that "God works in mysterious ways" and I'm viewing my being able to visit with long-ago friends as a true blessing. Each and every person has offered new perspectives on life, Christian experience, and, of course, encouragement and support for me in my venture. One very important thing that this entire move has brought to the forefront of my attention is that I have the best friends in the entire world and would not trade even one of them (no matter how much they tease me:-) for anything! The laughter, the concern, and the care of others, isn't that what life is truly all about?! A God-given family indeed and I feel very privileged!


  1. Hey Debbie, just found your blog! Mine is at

    Didn't realize you were a horsewoman! Equestrian activities run in my family. (I have two aunts who are horse trainers, one with Quarter Horses for ranch work, rodeo, and racing, and one with German Warmbloods for dressage.) We have to go riding together sometime when you get into town. There are some good bridle trails at the top of Shotover if we can rustle up some horses.

  2. Hi Debbie, Thinking of you and decided to look for your blog. Found your address on Google. Are you still in California? Do they know when you'll be flying back over? Praying for you girl!

  3. Aha! I finally found your blog. So excited about this experience you're undertaking! I am literally going to start saving money so I can come visit you sometime before the 2 years are up.
    Blessings, Ms. Higgins!!!!
