Oh my Goodness!!!

All of you who attended the "Praise and Coffee" on Thursday evening have probably been wondering why I haven't posted anything till now... Well, I have been frustrated with a non cooperative computer that will not upload my pictures, so the one you see here will be just like many you have already seen. I stole it from my friend Mari, I hope she doesn't mind.
It was me who received the lovely drawing gift of some specialty coffee, (I'm addicted just like Kim, from Scattered Stones ) a journal, and a book, "I'm Glad I'm a Mom" with several inspirational stories by Jill Savage. We can all use inspirational stories from other Mom's right??
Anyway, Kim did a super job making us all feel welcomed and comfortable. She gave us some great food for thought and insight into Hebrews 10. I got to meet some new friends and reconnected with some old. It was good to see Deb, a lovely lady I worked with years ago and will always be one of those people who is a friend for life even if you only see them once a year.
My daughter was there too and told me this morning she was so excited about the evening she hardly slept all night. I think she had to many brownies!!! Seriously she has been so on fire for the Lord lately that I have to keep her from bouncing off the ceiling. She was recently asked to go on a mission trip with 11 other ladies from her church and hasn't stopped talking about it since. Its refreshing to she her so happy.
I must say the first "Praise and Coffee" for our area was a success, I'm looking forward to the next one to see how many more ladies we can get to attend.
