Yesterday at the conference I met Rosy. Right from the start she seemed to be the most interesting person in the room. I met her just before the Ladies Coffee, which was a social time built into the conference. I didn’t register for the Ladies Coffee right away just because the idea of a Ladies Coffee didn’t really appeal to me. I don’t really fit in with most of the women there. But the Holy Spirit had urged me to register for it at the last minute, so I did. I asked Rosy if she was going to the Ladies Coffee, and she said that she was. So we went off together, leaving her boyfriend, Bobby, to attend the next session without us.
Rosy is doing something that I had always dreamed of doing, but never had the freedom or the resources to do: she lives in her fully-equipped camper van and has been traveling around the country since she was laid off from her job. That’s a courageous and daring thing to do, and I admire her a lot for doing it. When I bought my camper van in 2011 (see my first book, Look, Listen, Love) I had thought of doing that, but in Europe. My camper was stolen, which put an end to that dream for me. Nevertheless, I still think about it sometimes when I’m traveling around in Europe.
Rosy also blogs. So there we have a lot in common: writers, nomadic at heart, plus we’re both attending the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Conference, so we both keep our ears open for the trumpet’s sound. I love all the new friends God has for me! God is good!
