Spa Day With the Spa Girls

What a weekend! Months and months of planning finally came to fruition on Saturday when The SPA Girls visited Pearson. We had a GREAT time. The Girls ministered to the ladies present in ways I could never have imagined. Here's how it came to pass....
Friday night over Dinner at Mrs Billie's house, the Girls were telling us a bit about themselves and their families and eventually one of them said "We weren't planning on giving our testimonies at Pearson tomorrow....but.....
We all agreed to pray about changing the "line up" on Saturday and would discuss again before things got started Saturday morning.
Saturday morning arrived and we all agreed that they should give their testimonies.
They almost missed their flight home because we cut it so close!
I am so grateful that they felt God's pull on their hearts. Today I had woman after woman after woman come up to me and tell me what a great event "SPA Day" was. Know what they all went on and on about? How touched they were by the Girls testimonies. Seems everyone there related to and were encouraged by their honest sharing of themselves.
I never cease to be amazed at what God will orchestrate.
AND... I now have 2 new friends in Texas! These girls just fit right into my close circle of friends! We laughed and talked and just had the BEST time on Friday at lunch and Dinner and were able to relax and enjoy the entire day on Saturday.

WOW! What a weekend!

We had the VBS Kickoff party on Saturday and our first night of VBS last night. I think we fially got home around 10...and then I couldn't fall asleep....the Boo-mer-rang express was running thru my brain!

We had a blast and I can't wait to see all the kids again tonight!

I LOVE teaching music because i get to see alllllll the kids.

We "Go All Out" for VBS....I hope that we all spend as much time preparing to share Christ with the children we will meet this week as we have spent on decorating our rooms.
The amount of time and effort we have all spent getting ready for VBS has put the following thought in my mind...
"It is SO much easier to make sure everything looks right than it is to make sure everything IS right"
This is not necessarily applicable to the VBS workers at Pearson, but the hours and hours that were put in getting the rooms decorated made me think of how much time people in general spend in life making sure that everything LOOKS the way we want it to.
Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (1Samuel 16:7)
Just a thought....

Question of the day

What do women need to know about God?

There is SO much to say about my maker. My relationship with Him is so very personal and dynamic...I am often overwhelmed when I meet someone who doesn't have a relationship with Him. I want to tell her ALL about Him.....

So, what do women NEED to know about God????????

Let me know what you think

Lord help me this week to be an example of your love to the people you have placed in my life. Help me to live each day in such a way that others want to know You because they know me. Help me to love unconditionally. Help me Lord to care for the people you have entrusted to me as precious gifts to be cherished and nurtured. Help me to be a good steward of my time, money, and resources. Help me to live this week like a woman who has been freed from the bondage of sin and has been promised eternity in Heaven with You. Help me to let go of the past. Help me to forgive and, where appropriate, forget. Convict me of thoughts, desires, and behaviors that do not bring you glory. Help me Lord, help me become a women that does not have to tell the world that I am a Christian. Help me become a woman whose life is a reflection of Your grace. Help me become a woman whose words are a reflection of Your love. Help me become a woman whose actions are a reflection of Your mercy. Oh God! More than anything I want the world around me to see You in me!

This was the prayer on my heart when I woke up this morning. I used it to open the week on the FLO ministry blog as well. So many times, I get sideways because I think I should be doing something "big" for God. This seems to be a recurring theme with me these days. Again, I am confessing my unrest and asking forgiveness and asking God to give me patience while I till the soil He has planted me in.
Help me Lord to be a reflection of You where ever I am.
