Kristen is from Nova Scotia.
The hour-and-a-half drive landed me and 8 others at the airport.  After a marvelous and intense weekend, I was anxious to spend the day sight-seeing in Denver, so I quickly said my goodbyes to these treasured women and searched for the car rental location.  Once I got my bearings, I hopped on the escalator and headed down one level.  I looked behind me and next to a cute pink suitcase stood Kristen, one of the girls I had spent the weekend with but hadn't had a lot of time to talk with.  We did have a brief conversation about Prince Edward Island and our love of Anne of Green Gables.  Later she had witnessed the quick filming of my short testimony for Mom Heart, and she was so complimentary.  So, here she was standing with me on the escalator.  We quickly discovered that neither of us were catching a flight that day, so I invited her to join me on a walking tour of Denver.  She accepted and we had the most wonderful time talking, walking, photographing, crying, getting lost, eating, & discovering together.  We were fast friends.

No, we didn't want a shot of Kristen in front of a dirt pile...
someone had crocheted those flowers all over the fence.  
It was odd and interesting.
You never know what God-ordained moments await you in a day.  God placed both Kristen and I on the escalator at that moment and oh! the glorious time that resulted.


  1. I LOVE Kristen too!!!! YAY! I'm so glad you guys got a day together. Her blog is food for my soul.
