Trials and Joys

We had a great ladies retreat! But it was not without great personal trials and tribulations.
I praise the Lord for walking with me each step of the way, and bringing me down to level where He could work on me.

We had over 60 women. I am so thankful for the ladies in my Church who worked very hard. I'll tell you though, next time, we want to be Marys instead of Marthas. I'd much rather sit and listen than cook and clean. Well, as the Good Book says, there is a time for everything!

I praise the Lord because I saw how he worked in some of the women there. When you see tears streaming down a friend's face and see her jumping out of her seat to come to the altar, it makes it all seem worth it. We even had one lady get saved!

I am thankful for those who lifted me up in prayer. I really did have some hard times, and I'm still smarting from the blow.

On a another note, I am having trouble getting my Vonage phone to work properly and I am frustrated! It seems that my broadband connection isn't fast enough, and I am working on it. It means alot to me to be able to call so easily! I feel that I am sooooo close, and yet no quite there!

Grace and Peace!

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

I'm so glad that your ladies' meeting went well. I was praying that y'all would get a great blessing from it and that although it took lots of work and such to get it all together...that it would be just as much a blessing for you and your ladies as it was for those that were coming in from other places.
