Yesterday Kristine and I and the boys took the Wineys, wonderful friends of ours from Minnesota, down to Richmond Beach to watch the sunset over the Olympic mountains across the Sound. Amazingly beautiful. We found cool rocks and shells, ran up and down the beach, threw rocks in the water, watched ships pass and finally watched as the huge red orb in the West plunged into the southern olympic mountains. Wow! If you come and visit us this is where we’ll take you.
As we walked down the beach and the sky turned to brilliant gold and orange we came upon a couple walking our way. I commented on the beauty of the sky, as did they. I asked them if they came down to the beach often, and carried the conversation into discovering where they live and how we might share the Gospel message with them. They ended up asking us why we came to Seattle to which we got to reply, “A vision.” We got to tell them why God called us to the city and they told us right away that they are Christians and are looking for a church and would love to come and “check us out.”
Then she said, “You look so familiar, I think I’ve seen you before.”
“Yeah you look like the guy who bought an antique baby buggy from me a month ago.”
