Today was a treat.
Being a stay at home mom to 3 little boys, I very rarely get time away from them. When I do get time away, I need to make sure that I am grateful for it.
Today was one of those days.
The Women's Ministry Team from our church held their 'Ladies Day Apart' today. Having never been to one of these before, and never even having heard of such a thing, I had no idea what to expect.
I am shy and introverted. I usually keep to myself, and to walk into somewhere alone, when I don't know what is coming, what I will be asked to do, etc...is not my favourite thing to do.
I am however trying to get out of my little box, and let God work in my life.
Today was a blessing.
My Mom came out to the house to watch the boys for me, and let me borrow her car(there is a much bigger story there, but we'll leave that for another day...needless to say, it was a blessing). I had also arranged for my Father-In-Law to take my oldest son to his first softball game so he wouldn't have to miss it because Mommy was having 'ME' time.
When I got there (still nervous and feeling out of my element) I was blessed again. This time by one of the other women of our church. She had been given money to pay for someone who had not come, and so she looked to me and paid for me instead.
God is so good. He knows that funds are tight.
I grabbed a tea...a nice Vanilla Earl Grey...and a muffin and tried not to look so lost. I took my seat and our day began.
There was prayer, beautiful worship songs that brought me to tears, a wonderful guest speaker who did two sessions for us, and two other ladies that did a session on Home Staging. A lovely lunch was provided, time of fellowship, and communion together at the end.
The speaker was a woman by the name of Karen Brock. She is a Pastor's wife, and a beautiful woman of God. I really enjoyed listening to what God had put on her heart to share with us. She touched my heart...many, many times. Hopefully I will get a chance to post about that another day.
It was wonderful.
I am SO glad that I went. (thank you Hubby for signing me up)
Today was a blessing :)
