I have not been on here since 2013, I believe.
There is lots that has happened in my life since then, but I will not bore you with those things gone.
I would like to first off thank God for being such an Awesome, Almighty, Loving, and Forgiving God. Without him, I would be nothing.
What I have been up to is crocheting. I love crocheting dolls, stuffed animals, and little critters. I actually won editors choice twice on a crochet online site, I belong to. That was exciting.
I have also started beading. I do like to head bracelets, have not gotten that into necklaces or earrings, though, I have seen some that catch my eye.
I was invited to go to a woman’s summer get together, I very seldom go any where, just have made myself a big homebody. So…, I decided to go to this get together. Almost did not, tried to talk myself out of it all the way up until I got in the car and went. Honestly, I did.
Let me tell you, I am so glad that I went.
It was a Christian based get together, I knew that, the invitation came from my Sunday School teacher, and it plainly stated on the flyer that it was.
When I get there, there are other ladies from my church, which by the way, is the best church you would ever want to be a part of, if you do not believe me, come visit, you will see for yourself.
So Kelly’s front door kept opening, more women were coming in, mingling, lots and lots of chairs were set up in her living room, there lots of yummy finger foods on the table.
At about 7:00-7:15,(the invitation said 7:00), Kelly told us to get our drinks and food and to take a seat, so we did.
She gets up and asks us to introduce ourselves and to tell a little about ourselves, and why we were there. I remember, this one lady, I cannot remember her exact words, but something about, she got this flyer, and it mention God on it, and she had to come to see if this lady was gutsy or this lady was plum crazy.
Kelly, my Sunday School teacher did not know half the ladies there. (must have been about 25-30 ladies there). She had the same flyer invitation she gave at our church, and she had gone around her neighborhood, which she was new to, and stuck them on the mailboxes, held on by the mailbox flag.
How awesomely brave is that. She wanted to start a Christian woman’s group, she prayed about it, and God led her to do this.
We had a guest speaker, who happens to be Kelly’s best friend. She shared her testimony with us. WOW! What a testimony she has.
I am so glad that I went. So we all said we wanted more. This last Thursday night was our fourth meeting. I missed the second because I had dental surgery.
The night that I missed they watched a video, Kelly let me know that I could go onto YouTube and watch it. I did, it was awesome, I asked my husband, Dwayne, if he would watch it, he said yes, so we watched it together.
I challenged all my Facebook friends to watch it and share it on there pages, because, I really think it is worth sharing. It is a true story.
Go to YouTube and type in Fruitcake and Ice Cream by Loui Giglio, watch it. I watched the long version. It is maybe 53 minutes. Worth it.
I can not wait until the next meeting. We are going to hear another Testimony of how God has changed someone’s life.
I am so thankful that Kelly wanted to start this group, spending time with these women, getting to know them, knowing that they love the Lord the same as I do, making new Christian friends, what a great idea. Kelly is not crazy, gutsy yes, but I am glad she is, and so are the other ladies that keep coming back every other Thursday night at 7:00. If you live in the area, and want to come, let me know, and I will help you get there. It is like visiting my church, you will not be sorry.
So that is my blog for today, I am going to try to be here, every Monday and share with you how my week was, maybe some recipes, some scripture.
I hope I did not bore you too much.
God bless each of you and your family.
