I have not dropped off the face of the earth! School started here this week, and I have actually substituted for the past two days! Quite a change from the lazy days of summer just as recently as this past Monday!! Oh, my! I love subbing! The children are precious, crayons are in one piece, lunches are WAY too early (I'm eating my turkey sandwich at 10:40 am!!), and best of all, NO LESSON PLANS! Subbing has its advantages! I also am getting up at he crack of dawn--not to run--but to work! Finding time for my "quiet time" is a struggle! I personally enjoy spending time with the Lord first thing in the morning! It just seems to get my day off to a better start! And if Jesus did it, I can at least try to also! Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. Mark 1:35 I will try to get caught up over the weekend and read your wonderful new posts!!
God's vision for our church's Women's Ministry is growing! I am so excited, ya'll! We are scheduled to have a planning meeting on Sept. 3! It's just around the corner! We are inviting a cross section of women of various ages, and those who are married, single, widowed, etc. to pray, dream and share what God has laid upon their hearts for our church. Our mission statement is to have women fall in love with His Word. The verse for next year is "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength." Mark 12:29.
Here's where I need a little help from my bloggy friends!! I CAN'T think of a cute name for this group!!! All I can come up with is "Dream Team." That sounds like Michael Jordan and the Olympic basketball team from years ago! That is not what I envisioned this group to look like!! Do y'all have any ideas? I would love to have a great name for it when inviting ladies to attend. I'm sure that we'll have yearly meetings such as this, so some continuity would be wonderful! Help!! And bless your sweet little hearts!
Hope that y'all have a fabulous weekend! Child #1 has his first cross country meet in Charlotte in the morning, so that's where we'll be until lunch! I am really excited! I hope that he has fun and enjoys the event.
