East, West and In Between

I met a new friend in Windermere in the heart of the Lake District. (Beautiful but pouring with rain on the day we were together) Victoria comes from California where they have a four year drought. I come from England where, in the north, we never even have a four day drought.

She is from California and I am from England. I have never been to America, but was able to learn a great deal about her country and way of life. She has a large family, I have hardly any.

We had never met before, only through emails. We immediately got on very well. Our great uniting point was that we both loved the same God; we ‘spoke the same language.’ Our love of God does unite people right round the world, whatever their background or history.
