My Saturday Was Sweet

A re-post to celebrate Serving . . .
It was a Sweet Saturday.  A celebration.  A Birthday we called it.
6 months in ministry. 

Yes it was Sweet.  Today as I write it is Bitter Sweet.

Would you take a Sweet stroll down memory lane with me?

I first thought of this post because of all the Blue.  But, the more I looked at these pics.  They just said over and over Sweet.

Celebrating our Birthday.  The girls are wearing Prom Dresses that went into a closet for girls to borrow for Prom.  All dresses are brand new with tags.  We have a Dillards outlet in our town.

Volunteers and guests

The lovely Blue maiden was on staff.  She just got married.  The sweet girl in red was doing community service.  She completed her assignment and continued to come everyday.

A good shot of the cake.  It was Sweeeeeeet!  It's hard to see but it was a quilt.

6 months later.  Our first Christmas.   Setting up for our first Craft (Quilts) and Bake Sale. 
Quilts are being hung.  The girls are decorating Christmas Cards to be mailed to supporters and donors.

This is what it was all about.  Girls learning to Reach for Integrity and Purpose.  Making quilts for charity.
More Blue

One of our projects.  We made 50 different Teddy Bear quilts for local girls in a New Mom Parenting class

And the Sweetest for last.   One of the most dedicated volunteers.  Her dedication to God and her
amazing ability to reach teenagers was a Blessing.  

She made my days extra Sweet. 

This post is dedicated to all the young women  and those that felt young!  Many lives were changed.   

And it was sweet.

What a moving post, Sherry! I have tears in my eyes from reading it, and I know you meant a lot to those girls. I pray that blessings will be returned to you a hundred fold.
