Some Changes

This year has been a busy one! The Lord has been opening new opportunities in His service, which have been amazing. I've been asked to share my testimony with women from different churches on behalf of First Choice Women's Resource Centers, where I volunteer and it has been a privilege to serve in this way. Psalm 51:15 says, Unseal my lips O Lord, that my mouth may praise you. I have found that telling about what the Lord has done in my life, is a way to praise him. So far I have been answering the call, as He leads and trusting my schedule to Him.

In the next few months, there are going to be some changes to the Women of Hope meeting dates, for which I apologize in advance. I do hope you will still plan to join us, as the Lord leads. May your life be a testimony of His grace and power.

Our next meeting will be on Saturday morning March 20th at 9:30am

Happy New Year!

The Women of Hope ministry looks forward to 2010! This year I'd like to encourage all the women who read this to make a different kind of resolution for the new year.

Along with possible goals for a new body or better finance management, include a resolution prayer. Ask God to create a deeper hunger for His Word. It's a fail proof resolution. God loves to answer these kinds or prayers and requests!

Father, create in me in a deeper hunger for your Word this year. Cause me to greatly desire to know you more than ever before, through your eternal Word and in his name, Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

Let me know what happens!

Our Christmas Gathering

The Women of Hope had a Christmas gathering with lots of sweet treats, laughs and we spent time writing out Christmas cards to injured soldiers. Thank you Kathy for that idea and information!

We played a game that was a mix of Boggle and Scattegories. We rolled for a letter and I gave a category. Then the ladies had to list words that started with that letter and for the category. One example that stuck out was the category: Flowers and the letter was R. Of course we had Roses, Rhododendron, etc. but then it started getting shaky, when Marie tried to include the ever rare flower, Rosacea!!! You can imagine how much laughing was taking place.

It was truly a blessing to spend time with these great and very funny ladies. Thank you all for the gift of laughter and fellowship. May the Lord greatly bless you all with His peace and joy this Christmas and in the new year!
