"Daughter's of Zion"

Today my friend, Deb and I had a brunch at our home for our Sunday School class that we team teach together. I hesitate to say that we "teach" anything because let me assure you that prayer is lifted up every Sunday morning that God teach "through" us and that we not teach in our own strength. Also, I would say that this group of women teach us far more than we can ever teach them...about life, love, and honoring God. I am so proud of each and everyone of them. The brunch was scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. and at 10:05 there were only two or maybe three women present. My sweet husband said that as he sat on the front porch that he prayed that God would fill our home with our Sunday school class members. Before I knew it, my very small family room was packed with wall to wall women...laughing, sharing, and getting to know each other better. We even had two very young women present: Selena (Helen's daughter) and Sarah (Sabrina's new baby)....what a joy! With each encounter with these women, I love them more!

How grateful I am, as one of the "older women" of the church, that you and Deb are taking time with our younger women. They will be changed because of it and will never forget the time they spend with you. The life lessons you will teach them will remain constants in their lives. Praise God for you and Deb. I love you both!

These women mean the world to me! I feel so blessed to be a tiny part of their lives...and the ways in which they have helped me grow in my faith walk, I'm so thankful for!
