A Bridge-Playing Town

When we moved to Seguin, it seems as though I was basically asked the same three questions: (1) Do you play bridge? (2) What church do you attend? (3) Were your grandparents from Seguin?

Well, the answer to numbers one and three were "No."

However, it has been quite fun and special to meet with two dear friends twice a month and try my hand at Scrabble. We enjoy the fellowship, the laughter, the meal (this week: pizza) and dare I say it? The wine (or beverage of choice).

These times with close friends are very special and it really wouldn't matter what activity we were 'indulging' - for it is the companionship and the sharing and the spiritual closeness that really brings us together. I am so thankful for this gift.
