It has been a good week. A hard week, but a good week! That kind of doesn't make sense, but when you are able to see God at work, even in the hard times... well, it's good. Hard, but good. See?
Will you please pray for a meeting that we are having next Wednesday night for parents and volunteers that deal with kids with special needs? We are asking God to do a NEW work among our families and we will match up "Buddies" with kids that need extra help in Sunday school. Oh, friends! It's so good to see it come together!! I just love it!
I also had a great time at a women's conference this weekend! Priscilla Shirer came and spoke and it was just fabulous!
I really needed the special prayer time at the beginning of the weekend. It was an amazing time of worship and prayer as women of different colors, shapes, sizes and situations wrote prayer requests and placed them on the altar. Just to have that time to be real and open before the Lord was so refreshing. And to see those women in prayer made me realize that we all face things that we need Him to touch!
It was just a time to pour out my heart about the choices that we are facing. It gave me time to go back and read the promises that He gave me this year as we faced starting school and be reassured that He is STILL the same God! And then to know that women were taking those cards and praying over them just really brought such a peace. Knowing that you are being lifted to the Father is a humbling thing!
I know that the Lord spoke to every woman this weekend. Several of our girls from Sunday school went and we got to sit together. One thing that stood out to me was when Priscilla said that they had prayed that the Lord would bring those women that were serious about moving forward with Him to the conference. It made me feel so good to see 7 of our girls standing there worshipping together! I know a few wanted to come that couldn't and when you add those in... well, it just makes you feel great to know that you have friends that are seeking the same thing in their lives!
