Reunions


Reunions. There are many kinds. Class reunions. Family reunions. Unexpected reunions with friends.

I moved three times in high school, so I was invited to three different class reunions. I never went though because I had made more friends at a nearby rival school than at my own school. LOL!

I love family reunions where family convene from all over the United States to spend time together. There seems to always be that one person in a family who is like the glue that holds everyone together. That person normally plans the reunion. On my side of the family, my cousin Cheryl organized a massive family reunion last year in West Virginia. Had it not been for her hard work, I'm not sure our family would have had that wonderful, memorable time together.

I also recently had a wonderful surprise of having my best friend from childhood contact me. I've also reunited with old friends (girls...not guys! LOL) on Facebook that I'd lost contact with. Was really nice to catch up with them. So the social network sites can be a great way to keep in contact with friends.

Our family has a page/network on My Family. That is also a wonderful way to keep up with what's going on with family in other states. We share pictures and stories and someone even does a devotion. That someone is often the same Cheryl who planned the reunion. I'm so thankful for her and don't tell her near enough.

My June Love Inspired (A Soldier's Reunion) is IN STORES NOW. It is a story of reunion of high school sweet hearts. It is also a story of reunion between the heroine and God. I've received many, many letters from readers saying that they felt romanced by God through the book, or that they had been far from God and were brought near by the book. There's no higher compliment that a reader could pay than that. I'm so thankful to be able to write stories that honor Him...our God who has a heart for reunion.

I'd love to hear of your most memorable reunion. Leave a comment if you'd like. I'd love to hear from you now.

Thanks for coming by!

Warmly,

Cheryl Wyatt

you know almost all of June's books were about a reunion of some kind. They were great reads though.

Jessie, that's neat about the reunion books. I'll bet that wasn't planned. Funny how those things work out though.

Thanks for coming by!

yay! i'm so excited about your book coming out. i haven't had a chance to stop by the bookstore to pick it up yet, but that's the plan.

i enjoy reunion stories - especially when it brings childhood "loves" back together. i still think of the first boy i thought about marrying (at the ripe old age of seven) *grin*.

visiting here via your blog.

Jessie, I noticed that when I read all the blurbs for the month's books! It's one of my favorite themes to write!
