Blessing #2


I really have the best women's team on the planet! I enjoy them so much. They are dedicated women who love the Lord, love the ladies, and love me. They are great supporters and armor bearers and I am more excited about our team and what God is doing than I have ever been. Tonight we had our women's leadership meeting and we are right in the thick of planning for our biggest outreach of the year. Our meeting tonight was at my house and I decided to start with high tea and then have our devotional, planning and prayer time together.

First we had scones and I had made homemade devonshire cream to go with them. Then I made three kinds of tea sandwiches - my homemade chicken salad (which always gets rave reviews), egg salad, and parmesan pesto ham with provolone. Then we had three different desserts - mini cannoli's, chocolate filled tarts and strawberry filled tarts, all topped off with...Paris tea! Now doesn't THAT sound special? I just love doing things like this. I was hoping to do something special this week for them, dependent upon my schedule. And so...thankfully, it worked.

By the time we were done tonight, we had taken ourselves completely out of any box we had been in before, (I don't think we ever were - we just sort of keep trying to stay away from any boxes or limitations completely) and we made some changes to our outreach this year that will be different from any other.

I love spending time with leaders, dreaming about what we're going to do, planning it, executing it, and most of all...reaching people. Nothing like it.
