This is what has blessed me this week:
- The encouragement of all the ladies who visit Melissa’s blog:
As I read the concerns, trials, and hurts, I am uplifted by the encouraging words of so many. I am deeply moved by ALL the sweet, caring ladies who are the hands and feet of Jesus as they love on their hurting sisters.
- The gals who work behind the scenes at Proverbs 31 Ministries:
There’s ladies who help with all the technical aspects of putting this study on the Internet, ladies who work at the P31 office (thank you, Terry, for helping me with my order this week!), ladies who volunteer at the P31 office, ladies who are counselors, ladies who help with the conference calls, ladies who edit, ladies who post pins and pictures, ladies who write posts, one very sweet lady who sends out care packages, ladies who write cards, ladies who read the posts and ladies who are prayer warriors.
- Blog Hop Thursday:
When I first started following OBS, I wasn’t in a Facebook small group and I only read Melissa’s blog. Even when I joined a group (BIG SHOUT OUT to wonderful Group 19 lead by Amanda Gibson!!), I still didn’t read the blogs. It wasn’t until I became a small group leader myself that I began reading the blogs, which then led me to write one. I am so touched by what God is teaching us all, and I am blessed by the honesty of so many. I don’t get to post on all of them, but I do read many of them. I not only enjoy reading the blogs, but I also love reading the responses from ladies who reach out and sincerely encourage one another.
- The sweet gals of Group 46:
Yes, this is my group, and I’m so thankful for each lady the LORD has brought to this group. We’re in all different seasons of life and in all different walks with Christ, so I am blessed by what each lady brings to the group. I love each lady and am thankful for what they’re teaching me as we’ve walked through “Stressed-Less Living” together.
- God’s creation:
I planted 4 different kinds of sunflowers last year, and this year God has blessed me with at least 40 different plants coming up from last year’s crop! I also enjoy watching the hummingbirds and wrens. The baby wrens are getting ready to leave the nest soon, so mama wren is hissing and squawking at me every time I go out the front door. Still, it’s been a source of enjoyment watching her care for her young ones as I work in the kitchen.
