Welcome to my friday weekly event Share and Tell today I want to introduce one of my favortire places to visit everyday. Many of you may know Kelli from Show and Tell Friday I have sent you over there to visit. But in case you haven't stopped over there yet you are missing a treat.
Kelli writes almost everyday. She has a lovely little blog. She does lovely little virtual tours of house and yard. She is an amazing cook and shares some of her favorite recipes with beautiful photos on her sidebar. She also hosts a weekly papercrafting meme and does a giveway.
She shares much about her lovely family and has lots of photos of their activities. I don't know where she finds the time because she homeschools but I am glad she does. I love visiting her. I am always encouraged to be a better homemaker. I think that she is a true Proverbs 31 Woman. I send sweet Blessings today to my dear 'sister' Kelli. Why don't you go over and say '"hi" and don't forget to tell her I sent you.
Before you go I have another ministry story to share. No photo today. I thought you might be cheered by what happened last night at reading group.
There was a sweet sweet spirit . . .
I never know what to expect when I arrive at the halfway house. In fact I was there early in the day for a luncheon board meeting. Our meeting room was being used and we waited for awhile before deciding to start the meeting in the day room. Then when the room became available we had to move in the middle of the meeting.
Not such a sweet spirit
Then when it was time for Bible study the girls were in the middle of a movie because staff was having a meeting in our room again. Well when they were done what was I to do? Tell the girls to turn off the tv in the middle of the movie. I patiently waited and finally staff decided to tell the girls that it was time for reading group. 6 of the 12 girls decided to come to the group.
We took a little diversion from our regular text we have been reading Women of the Bible a wonderful study book that has daily readings beginning with the story of the woman written more like a novel it is followed by history and then prayer and devotion. I love the book.
We read last night a Cowboy joke book because we wanted to talk to the girls about prayer and about the new building project. My Cowboy began telling them about the project and before he could even ask them to pray one of the girls said "let's pray now." . And we did. She said Let's hold hands and we prayed. There was a sweet spirit in that place.
Those girls lifted me up and God gave me affirmation. What we are doing is making a difference. They are learning what we are teaching them. I am learning patience and I am learning to Wait on God and trust him. I am stumbling trying not to step out on my own and work at making the new building a reality but I know that if I put my faith and trust in the Lord that he will lead me where he wants me to go and I know I will find A Sweet Sweet Spirit
