Week's Recap

This was the week to be an extrovert!   The week began with a fantastic group of brothers and sisters from Beale AFB Chapel in our home.

Arielle counted it up and I spent 20+ hours this week talking with my home, in their homes, in

 coffee shops, donuts shops, restaurants and via Skype. We tried a lake and got kicked out. ::snort::

Why all the talking? I wanted to listen to current leaders, past leaders, future leaders in women's ministry. I returned home Thursday at 10:00 p.m. and commented to Michael that after Friday's meetings (2) I would not talk about Women's Ministry for at least 24 hours....maybe 48.  His response?


AND God is gracious! Those final two meetings on Friday were refreshing times to share about JESUS and His work in our lives. Good times.  Now, I'll let all the comments, all the words sit....sit before the Lord and see what the Holy Spirit sifts from all of it.

NEXT, more meetings. More women who are looking to lead in the future.  Women who have a heart and vision for being Jesus through women's ministry.

I'm also looking for another kind of woman who will talk to me. Women who have chosen not to be a part of women's ministry.  I want to know "why?" What have we missed? How do we miss your needs? Our hearts are right. Maybe some simply are able to get all their needs for teaching and community in Sunday meetings.

In between all this talking....throughout and around...the kids continued to school....and the younger two and I continued to read about the build-up to the American Revolution. We skipped Spring Break. We are on a course to finish our 180 days on 30 May.  We decided to keep pushing.  This will give us an extra week to relax before Arielle flies our coop for the Imuris Kid's Kingdom  in Mexico. 

Michael worked a full week at base. I didn't see him much so I'm not quite sure what to report. I know he fought a flu bug most of the week. I know he led us on Wednesday night at the Chapel's Family Study as we discussed a few verses in Galatians. I so enjoy those evenings. 

Choosing Joy!
