Snowy Prayer Walks et al

Jared needed to be at work early today. 

Michael wanted to attend PMOC today. The men were having breakfast and watching Courageous.

I wanted to meet die hard PWOC sisters for a prayer walk....and spent the early hours playing with movie maker (see post below).

At 0900 I headed over to the track....and wow....4 - 6 inches of powdery snow on top of iced over ruts....ugh. We decided to walk on the sidewalks instead....

I was a bit unsure of this idea - but WOW - what a great way to spend a morning. This week Ruth, our prayer coordinator and a dear friend, had asked women at all PWOC studies to write prayer requests on index cards. We planned to grab a card and pray a lap for the request...which we did.  It may have been a bit out of my comfort zone...but it turned out to be a BLESSING. Moving, praying, together, in the snow, a memory I will treasure! Blessed all around. (P.S. Ruth is the friend that began MOCA  - Moms of College Aged - with me - where we pray for our "kids" back in the states).

For some reason coming home from my last trip has been hard. I love being home...but I've had a hard time getting back into the routine of local ministry and home life. I seem to remember meetings AFTER they happen, dates changed and I'm playing catch up....just more befuddled than I usually am after a trip....Today was precious. I felt connected again after walking with Ruth and praying for our ladies and the needs on their hearts.

Now it's time to play Ratuki.

Choosing Joy!
