Recently I had a solo road trip to a wedding in Texas and took the opportunity to ask a mother-daughter pair if they'd be available for a BQ meet-up as I passed through their town on my way home.
They said "yes" to my random offer and we coordinated details to pick a meeting place.
I navigated my way through thunderstorms and arrived at our rendezvous point to see an eager face peeking out the window. I knew immediately we were going to have a great chat!
And, indeed we did.
We talked about washi tape, pets, and brothers. We discussed potential topics, tabs, and spacing strategies. We shared pages and swapped stories. Our words flowed freely and our ideas seemed endless.
What fun to meet face-to-face and make a sweet heart connection in the process. God is so good to fuse us through His Word!
If you've got a potential BQ opportunity in your area, I encourage you to reach out over that awkward "not-quite-a-stranger-but-not-quite-a-friend-yet" barrier and let God do the rest.
