Friday I was boarding a plane to fly to Milwaukee (through K.C.) where I was going to be speaking at a children’s ministry conference about Like Ice Cream. As the plane was boarding I noticed that a mom and her son who were boarding as well looked familiar. Well, it was Nicole, one of my youth group kids from years ago. Not only was she in my youth group, but she grew up to be a fabulous writer and editor and I used her as the editor on my first book – Falling in Love with God’s Word.
Turns out, she was also going to Milwaukee to visit her younger sister. When she told her sister that she ran into me, Lisa said, “Hey, I’m making a ton of pasta. Have Keith come over.” A few hours later I was sitting in Lisa’s apartment, eating pasta with two of my former youth group kids, who are now grown and still walking with the Lord. To hear them talk about their faith, Bible study, and family was truly an amazing gift.
Then, to top it off, what was for dessert? You guessed it – ICE CREAM. Outstanding!
