The day began with breakfast, tea and study with Allie. We discussed week 2 of our study "Choosing God instead of the World." I love participating in the varying discussions with various groups of women. The online discussion is daily, more back and forth as we figure out what we think of the passage. I meet in person with Stacia and Allie...individually for these six weeks. The topics which come up are totally different than the ones in the online or local group - valid, good, real and tough. I also am leading a group of local ladies through the same study.... we've just begun, and I was encouraged to see all ages show up for the study. I think studying with the girls is good as it helps me have new ways of looking at the things and provides a glimpse into topics younger moms may want a heads up on. Going through the studies with the online ladies and the young women in our home has become an integral part of my prep to lead our local group. I continue to be amazed how the Holy Spirit illumines things so individually for each of us, and how we can read the same thing and have such wide application. It's good.
I did some more clean-up work in the garden.
I took leftovers and turned them into tonight's dinner. I always feel like I'm on the right track when the aromas draw onlookers to volunteer to be taste-testers.
That's it for the day.
