I love gathering around a table, drinking coffee or tea, eating sweets and sharing stories with other women. As my friends know, I can talk for hours. I love to laugh. I laugh loud. God has richly blessed me with a variety of hoots and other noises to express joy. It just feels so good to laugh. I have absolutely no doubt that God has a great sense of humor and there is lots of laughing in heaven.
Even as I’m writing this, I’m thinking of all the women I’ve ever had dinner with or met for bible study; and joy just washes over me. Please if you are reading this, share a special time you had with a sister in Christ
I never get tired of studying the women of the Bible, especially the ones with the names that are fun to say and colorful stories like Bathsheba, Jezebel and Rizpah. Reading their stories reminds me that the Bible was the first reality show. While reality shows are a bit too raw for my taste, the Bible doesn’t sugar coat its characters; they’re pretty raunchy. Even the biblical matriarchs like Sarah and Rachel have their nasty sides. And as difficult as it is to admit, I don’t poop roses. I have sinned and I have fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) Our (My) God is a God of relationships. We need each other. We learn from and with one another. I am always more committed to something when I’m part of a team. Please join me in studying our sisters in the Bible. Please share your favorite Bible characters.
Thank you Lord for your many blessings. Thank you especially for my sisters, for the time we spend together and for our laugh out loud stories we share. Bless us, bless our journey and bless this blog, may it ever be pleasing to you. Amen
