Here’s some initial photos from our spring garden party… I’m still working on the rest of them, and hope to have a video sometime this week.
We had so much fun wearing hats, eating dainty food while sitting on quilts. Quite a few of the girls made their hats, including Courtney. I loved it!
the lovely natasha.
When we arrived, Brianna promptly informed us that we had to call each other “dahrling” all day long. We did for five minutes… and promptly forgot.
At the party we talked about the meaning of our names, how God knows us by name, and how He will give us a new name.
That’s the simple version. I’ll tell you more soon. ❤
We had a great time at our last meeting! For those of you who were unable to make it- we talked about serving. God is asking us to have a servants heart, which means, to put other people above ourselves! It is such a high calling and can be so difficult at times…
Delite asked us to work at memorizing a verse or two before the next meeting (the last Saturday in June, a Garden Party!) so just as a reminder, I am going to post them here. Take your pick and remember, there are prizes for those who can write a verse out without looking!
“Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
I Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Again, don’t forget our June meeting!
It’s been a month already. Crazy… although I’m a little mixed up, because I wasn’t really at the last meeting – even though I was at part of it, because you lovely ladies came to see the play.
Anyhow, we’re back to the regular meeting, for one month at least. *smiles* Details are as follows:
Where: Cheri’s house, in Martinsburg
When: Saturday, May 28 – 5 to 8 p.m.
Who: Girls, ages 10-15
Delite is in charge this month… so you know it’ll be fun! Anyhow, remember we’ll have dinner, and bring your Bibles and notebooks.
See ya there!
Hey all! Meghan here. Just wanted to leave you some pictures of the retreat! I wanted to have all the pictures and video edited before this…but do you know how many I took? A LOT.
Anyhow, here’s a taste of the retreat.
emily and selena.
bekah and brooke.
We had such a wonderful time. Laughing. Talking about…life.
On Friday night, we made dream boxes…a place where we could put our dreams at the feet of Jesus. Just like the woman with the alabaster jar.
We did some creative journaling. Setting a memorial stone, giving ourselves something tangible to remember how God has moved in our lives.
bulletin board...and schedule.
But what you don’t see on the schedule was all the fun we had…ninja, drop the blanket, playing in the snow, reading stories, and sparklers under the stars.
king...um...queen of the mountain.
It was wonderful. As a leader, I came away TIRED…but feeling like I must have been blessed more than the girls.
inside on a wet day.
I am so thankful for each of the girls that came. Each one.
tasha and aurora.
It was lovely.
for how the ugly becomes beautiful.
for the fun.
And that’s Women of Promise. ❤
P.s. I’ll post more soon!
