Titus 2 Tuesday


Click here to Join Titus 2 Tuesdays!!! I had this one alllll ready on Monday night and then never finished. Boo. :)

What have you learned from a woman this week (or ever)?

This week I'm sharing about my friend Jaclyn. I picked Jaclyn because on Friday, she and her husband, Kirk are coming to KC.

Jaclyn is a lot like me... short, sassy, and HILARIOUS... wait, I'm hilarious, right? :)

Jaclyn is one of my "internet buddies" that I met 5 years ago. I immediately loved her. She had just separated from her husband and was in need of some Christian fellowship. She came to the chat room I frequent... people immediately started ragging on her because she wasn't divorced yet. The chat room is for singles only and people got in an uproar over her being there. I stuck up for her because I thought what she needed was friends...

Our friendship quickly grew into phone calls and random cards in the mail. A couple of years later, she and her husband decided to try again... just 'dating' for quite some time. It took three years of "knowing" one another before we met.

I was actually going to San Antonio and had a layover in Dallas. She and her sister-in-law picked me up at the airport and we went to dinner... and laughed the entire time. {I don't have these pictures on my computer, but I so wish I did...} They took me back to the airport and I continued my journey. On the way HOME, I had a twelve hour layover in Dallas (that was planned) and stayed with her for the twelve hours... and also met the boyfriend.

Since that trip I've gone back to Dallas every year to visit. Kirk and Jaclyn got married (again) two and a half years ago. Here are the three of us last year after church:

One of my most favorite couples ever

Jaclyn has a heart of gold and would do anything for everyone. She always says I understand her... she gets me too, so I think we've both learned a little something. :) Her husband? He's absolutely amazing. A true gentlemen (yes, ma'am; no, ma'am) and funny as all get out. I can't wait for them to get here!! AAAHH!!!
