We've just started Chapter One of the book "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" by Joanna Weaver. If you'd like to join us be sure to check out the discussion over at Christian Paper Crafts, we'd love for you to join us. I got my book at Borders but you can get a copy at Amazon.com or CBD.com (Christian Book Distributors). We will have updated discussion on Thursdays so be sure and visit us!
Our Ladies Ministry retreat is approaching quickly and our theme is "Joy" and the main Scripture is Psalm 16:11. You can just imaging the battles that have been going on in the spiritual sense considering the topic. I should have just marked my forehead with a bullseye!! I'm teaching Session 1 and my topic is "Joy Stealers" and like I said it feels as if I've been marked with a big red bullseye! Ah, the testing of our faith.... count it all joy!!! So please keep me in your prayers, I'd really appreciate it! We are trusting the Lord for a real time of refreshing and re-engergizing!
Yet, I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:18
