I have so much to be thankful for this week and every day. The Spring Refresh was amazing. The speakers, missionary moments, and all the women in attendance were vibrant and full of joy. Many great testimonies encourage d and uplifted near three-hundred women in attendance.
From our Spring Refresh with the Alliance Women:
Mags old enough to attend with me
Equal number of adults to teens this year!
Safety while traveling
A growing church
Authentic women of God
Indoor swimming pool
Hugs from FB friends
To meet a FB friend in person (go figure)
Time to get away
Deck boards lay when I returned home (Thanks Dad, Ed, Scott, Josh, and Mom!)
Sunday through today:
A purple heart for the tough days
A daughter wishing to serve
Children’s church lesson planned and taught…by Mags
Blessed to work with friends
Words written in obedience to God change my heart
Clothes in dryer when I left, folded and put away when I return
Great ORC team
Doctors who care
Doctors willing to work together
Healed in His name
Hope for tomorrow
Lemon water in the morning
A green salad each day
Equal a healthier version of me
Dar…for joining me on Monday night
A six year old’s giggle
Smiling is contagious
Thankful Mags trust Him to care for her!!
These are only a few of the things I am thankful for this week. There are so many. Each day I wake up is cause for thanks and praise because has blessed me with another day here on earth. Yet as I write this, I think of a statement made by one of the girls at youth group a few weeks ago.
A discussion question during one of our youth group icebreaker activities the wisdom expressed through one of our teens triggered a fabulous conversation. I cannot remember the exact “scenario” on the paper but it had something to do with “the worst thing to happen” and “death”. One of the girls said, “If the worst thing is death and going to heaven, is it really that bad?” The conversation that ensued lifted my heart. If children are our future, things are looking good.
