IFF-ish: Islander Edition-ish

Greetings from de island,

So you may have noticed that it’s not Friday. I honestly did begin writing this yesterday, but some events transpired within our family that far overshadowed the need to post. I felt like you were pretty reasonable people and would understand, and for that I am grateful.

That being said, this Islander Feature Friday is a bit of a cop out. I won’t pretend it isn’t, but I feel like I have a pretty okay excuse! My dear friend Shruti is leaving island on Tuesday (NYC bound). Her husband, Chris, was accepted into Columbia University! While the circumstances are fantastic for them, I am, of course, devastated. I asked Shruti to be my Islander Feature a week before I needed it for this month. Shame on me, right? She has the most incredible story for how she ended up in St. Thomas and has endured on island. I won’t spoil it, but I will say she is originally from India. It’s incredible! Of course she could not put this immaculate story together in a week, but I will absolutely make an exception and post her story as soon as I receive it. When Wilson left island, Shruti cooked us an amazing Indian dinner, so for her sendoff, I cooked her a proper Southern meal of chicken pot pie, corn casserole, and blackberry cobbler 🙂 We took a walk and cried a lot. But I am taking so much solace in the fact that we will be REUNITED in September in NYC!

I still feel that I owe you some personal testament to the island life, so I am delighted to link you to our church blog to read some of the personal testimonials from our summer interns about their experiences: Shannon and Jeremiah. They won’t disappoint!

Thanks for checking in friends. I hope this wasn’t too lackluster for you! Until next time folks!

Cheers,

Megs

P.S. Happy Birthday to my dearest Danielle (aka “Aunt Nelle”)!!

Bigger Story

Our lives are stories that interconnect and weave together into a greater, much bigger story of love, grace, and redemption.
