This one is just before we left for church. I had put make up on but I can't see a stitch of it in this picture. I think perhaps this is before I put on my makeup and I just thought I had already done it, lol. My camera is dying and I need a new one, maybe it's the camera. Can I blame my cellulite on the camera too?
I just wanted to say thank you to my friends today. Blogging is not an easy thing to do sometimes. It can be very difficult to do in a format like mine that is so very personal. Sometimes I write a post and the next day I want to kick myself for it. Lots of times I want to delete something but I feel a conviction not to do it, so I don't. This is supposed to be an honest look at daily Christian life for me, so no delete button.
All of you are so wonderful to me! You are my friends and you encourage me. You write me wonderful things that make me laugh sometimes. I love that. I like when I get to have "conversations" with you. I have sent some of you gifts and some of you have sent me gifts. I wonder what it would be like someday if we could all meet in person. I'd bet we'd laugh and laugh.
Blogging is just so dang cool. How else can a girl have a "conversation" with two authors that wrote books that truly changed her daily walk with God? By blogging of course and commenting their blogs and sweet mercy, they actually comment you back!!! I know you aren't supposed to elevate people, yeah, but dang Lysa Ter Keurst and Wendy Blight rawked my Christian walk and when those ladies leave me a comment I just giggle and giggle. How many times have you read a book that was so awesome and you had a question or just wanted the author to know how what they wrote impacted you and you couldn't? Thank goodness for blogging authors!
If I lived in North Carolina anywhere near those Proverbs 31 ladies I would be in hog heaven! What a sweet & loving group of ladies. But back to you..... I love all of you. I love when you talk to me, I love when you encourage me and I love when you tell me that I encourage you. I love that you even come here, most people like to just read blogs and not comment. I like to leave a comment but that's just me. I am just honored that we can do life together. I love to be inspired by you and your blogs if you have one. I just wanted to say thank you for being my bloggy friend and let you know that all of you mean a lot to me. I'm not just saying that, truly all of you hold a special place in my heart.
This Thursday I begin my first Bible study class that I will be teaching. I have never taught a Bible study class. I am scared to death! I'm not scared of the study, which I wrote, but I am scared that I will not communicate it well. But I remember Wendy Blight talking about her first study and she was scared to death and wanted to call everyone up and cancel it the day of the first study, lol. Well, she did it anyway and her blog says she just celebrated her sixth year of Bible study and she had 80 women in attendance!! So I take my inspiration from her and from the scriptures. I can do it as long as I am doing it with Him.
This Friday is our first online study, hurray!! I will be emailing out the before the study questions later today if you emailed me and told me you wanted hard copies of everything in the study. Every other week on Friday I will email you the hard copies of everything in the Bible study. Our study is "How to Discover God's Will For Your Life". I can't wait! It is going to be awesome for all of us. Please join us this Friday and every other Friday for the study. If you want hard copies of everything please email me and I will send them to you every other Friday as we do the study together.
