Bits and pieces of HER LIFE’S JOURNEY completely BLEW… ME… AWAY!!!  I JUST HAD TO MEET THIS WOMAN… TODAY.  I quickly called to RSVP, however the event was completely booked!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  But, I just HAD to…???…???…???… “MEET and GREET” her!!!  In short, I did manage to get away from work for about 90 mins. today.  AND… Linda and I were able to spend precious moments together in a semi-private room at the River House here in St. Augustine, FL.

What an inspiration, folks.  Her “JOURNEY”… has been…???…???…???… “DIFFICULT”… to say the least!!!  So many obstacles.  So many trials.  Yet Linda Brandt has survived it ALL… with a steadfast Faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.  AMEN.

Oh, and guess what???  Yep… Linda and I “Bonded” during our brief exchange today, 2/24/18 (as I sit here at the computer with my fingers crossed in display of the connection I felt).  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  What an amazing day offering me the opportunity to “meet and greet” an AMAZING woman, Linda Brandt.  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

“THIS is a day that the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it”.    Psalm 118:24

Folks, I encourage you to become acquainted with Linda Brandt.  Her writings.  Her paintings.  Her blog.  Her “LIFE”.  She has suffered great tragedies, however chooses to focus on the positive blessings bestowed her.  ALLELUIA!!!  AMEN.

In parting this afternoon, Linda suggested that perhaps we could meet for coffee sometime.  I was quick to respond:  “Yep, Coffee With Linda”!!!  😉  Thanks, Linda.  I NEEDED today… weeks ago!!!
