Salt & Light

Our Church just started a new 8-week study entitled Salt & Light by Jerry Sheveland. I noticed a few Sundays ago that the Women's Ministry was planning a study based around this book on Tuesday mornings, and that childcare would be provided for those that need it. "Really?!" was my first thought. In my 4+ years of being a mother, never have I had the opportunity to join in a women's bible study because childcare was always an issue - and here, provided for me, was the opportunity and arrangements, made for me, to be able to participate. I couldn't ignore God telling me "this is your opportunity, I made this available for you!" So I signed up, and I'm sitting here after the second meeting with my small group feeling wonderfully blessed! God is so good - He knew I needed Christian women right now in my life and He answered that prayer with 7 Godly women with whom to study His Word and fellowship. I must admit I wasn't sure how I'd fit-in with this group of women, as the youngest of them is 46, but I've been so blessed by this group of women! I'm just marveling in God's awesome provision for His children, and count myself blessed to be considered one of His! I just wanted to write and share my joy with you all. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
"Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits - who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things..." -- Psalm 103: 1-5

How neat that you found a Bible Study with child care. I am happy for you. I love the town of the other post. I am glad you are making the best of things in California.

Super! I couldn't go on without my Bible Studies. I have made life-long friends studying the Word together. I hope and pray that this will only be the beginning for you.

You will learn SO MUCH from those older women!! The time I spent with your mom in choir just telling her everything and getting wisdom from her is one of my most cherished possessions! (It's a wonder David didn't kick us onto the back row.) She is such a godly woman and one of my favorite people. I hope you learn from them as much as I did from your mom.
