Our Ruby Tuesday Disappointment

three months ago dad golden called me to come and see him as he had something important to tell me and so i went..."i want to give you the money you will need to fly to norway."..oh i was so surpised! see the whole golden family loves felisol and dad golden is her prayer child..."oh dad that would be so nice!!" you can see by these empty red chairs standing under felisol and gunnar's tree, the trip did not come about....and it was suppose to be TODAY!

bernie and i had been so looking forward to meeting our loved family on the far side of the sea...we wanted to see their slim beautiful silver birch trees in person...this is the picture that felisol took of them....the picture just one of several that i have swiped from her blog!

i think that these are "forget me nots" and they are so delicate and so pretty!
norway "forget me nots!"

we wanted to walk with felisol beside the sea...with bernie on one side and felisol and gunnar and serina on the other side, i am sure that i would lose my fear of the sea...i have always been afraid of huge bodies of water...i don't know why.

and oh the wonderfulness of it all if i could have only seen this flock of sheep and lambs...oh! oh! oh!!!

and the bight silver path that the sun has made along the sea shore.

at the end of this rugged path is the shadow of a touching!

i have always had a fascination of windows that look out into lawns and trees and flowers and i am sure that this would have been one of my favourite spots at felisols'.

ha!! bernie would have loved to meet gunnar's car!..maybe gunnar would have given him a ride in it..

we probably wouldn't have had enough time to go and see the house where felisol and her brother, kel were born but it would have been nice.

this picture of mom ljung's sweetheart and felisol and kel's dad and gunnar's father-in-law and serina's grampa is my favourite photo of he is sitting with his beloved granddaughter reading his most loved book, the precious he must be to the lord who he lives with now and how he waits for his faithful family...of course that family will see him again!

oh the treasure that felisol has in books!..i KNOW that i sure would have looked some of them over although time WOULD have been short!

and that kitty...i think i would have played him a little tune on the piano and i think i would have packed him away on friday and brought him to canada!!hahahaha!

maybe the family would have showed me their church...i don't know if they have their prayer meeting on a wednesday but that would be good.

mom ljung loves gunnar...

and serina loves her daddy!

felisol loves her merry-go-round horses...

and her brother, kel!

felisol loves the sea..

she is like a fish in water!...maybe i would have loved the sea too..who knows...when betty went to prince edward island, she spent most of her holiday swimming the ocean..she loved it! could two sisters be so different, eh?

well one thing i know for sure is that felisol sure has got her feet wet!

is gunnar saying hi?

is mom ljung saying welcome?

and is princess serina looking sad that we couldn't make the trip?...i really hope so!

this summer sky was photographed by gunnar and i must say, i have never seen any sky so stunning as this! have seen it in person must of been so great for felisol and gunnar and for them to have taken the time to get out of the car and snap a picture and share it with so many people was a kind thing!

gunnar wil never know how i love bon fires! has been so long that i have seen one..and alas, it will be another long time before i see another!

this must be the sun setting in the sky..

and so everyone will be sleeping in this lovely home on the far side of the sea!...............well, felisol, i have at least spent about three hours enjoying your blog and writing this post so all has not been lost!..if i never see you this side of life, i know that we shall all meet in the meantime god bless you and you have a happy ruby terry

Oh, I am so sorry your trip didn't work out! Sorry for you and for Felisol and all the families! You are such a precious, giving lady and it would have made my heart sing to know you had gotten to make your trip. As you say, whether on this side or the other, we will meet!

Many hugs............


Felisol said...

Dearestest Terry,
Your post made me cry, long and bitterly.
I would have loved sharing our home and country with you.

Since you are making my everyday burdens lighter and spreading light and hope upon my road, I sincerely do hope our Lord will have mercy and open the gate between us here on earth too.
Yours Felisol
P.S. We don't usually have prayer meetings on Wednesdays, but I'll do my best to tack one down when you come.

Oh the crying rose depicts the extent of the disappointment'

I am so sorry to hear this and don' t want to offer glib comfort.

But whatever is the cause - God can overcome it and don 't lose hope Bernie and Terry. God knows your heart and love for Felisol and her beloved family - if He wills so He will remove the obstacle and transport you across the Atlantic.

But Terry in the midst of your unfulfilled desire you have presented us with such a meaningful an d true gallery of Felisol 's couontry, family and mutual friendship - its gladden the heart and eyes.

I will pray that the desire of your heart may be granted by the good Lord.

Hi Terry ~~ The more you wrote and the more I read the more disappointed I got. ;) I do hope that someday you will get to make the trip.

We also want to see Felisol and just may do that by taking a side trip from seeing our daughter Karen and the kids and Billy in London.

(Karen is coming here to work next week. Just her by herself. We'll meet at a Houston restaurant with the other kids for Father's Day. Then she will head to a fancy hotel that BP is paying for her to stay AND WORK. She plans on spending Thursday night with us and flying back on Friday.)

Keep your chin up. Posting a lot will help things. I post quite a bit too, did you know that?

Felisol said...

Dearest Terry,
Thanks for all the nice comments on my blog.
I would be dishonest if I didn't say I appreciate praise, even though I know you are always so generous and hardly can speak a harsh word to anyone.

Now, I praise you for being my best friend and also the kindest person I know.
I've googled Pentecost for you, and send you a wondeful link.
Please enjoy.
Yours Felisol
