Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Who Says You Can't Go Back Home?

Posting this from Wisconsin Rapids. "Home" for all my Junior High and High School years.

I'm sure I can't put in words what is in my heart. These folk are part of who I am. What fun it was to see them all again.

Vernon and Sharon

Dad performed their wedding ceremony during a driving blizzard. Looks like it "took" just fine!!!


One of my special high school friends. We weren't in the same school, and she graduated before I did - - - but we were friends all through my high school days and she has a special place in my heart and in my memories.


"Adopted" us. We went camping in her garage, had paper air plane fights all through her house, and watched TV all night long. She loved us through it all.

Pam, Anita, and Me

Anita is Pat's daughter and the reason Pat was forced to "adopt" us. There was always a laugh involved with Anita - - - and she was on hand at my "near drowning" at Lake Wazeecha - - - but that's still another story.

Pam, Connie, and Me

We used to take Connie and her siblings to church with us. Now Connie is an amazing lady, one I wish all of you could meet!

Pam, Harvey, and Me

What a good sport! He consented to have his picture taken with us.

Pam, Connie, Jerry, and Me

Connie and Jerry were our youth pastors. They had no formal training, but they loved us and gave us leadership skills, and loved us, and put up with us, and loved us and loved us. I know I owe much to them for what I have become.

Memories and relationships come out of what you do today! It appears you had some very good days in your past~

Oh Papa - - - the Lord has blessed me by his Grace far beyond what I deserve. These people are DEAR to me.

Today has been a wonderful day of renewing relationships and visiting old "haunts."

I'll be posting more about that either tonight or in the morning.

There's only one problem I find when "going home" - my friends seem to have gotten older! The things people do when you're not looking!

Keetha Broyles said...

Oh - - - there was a tiny bit of that, but the parts of us that matter - - - the INNER spirit - - - that was not older, and it was still kindred.

How wonderful! It looks like fun times!

Keri said...

Mom you are beaming!

Keetha Broyles said...

It is fun times - - - these people had SUCH an impact on us. Jerry Delaney was the BEST youth pastor EVER until your dad, Keri!!! :-)
