Every Thursday morning I have the cool opportunity to meet with a group of fantastic ladies at my church. In the past 3 years, we've been through a lot together. We've done several Bible studies by different authors. We've laughed together. Cried together. Shared our hearts and lives with each other. I look forward to Thursday mornings because they are a time when we speak truth into each other's lives, knowing that everything said is said by people who love each other. We've had so many great discussions. So many opportunities to talk through issues that are troubling to us. Times to bounce ideas off each other. To get feedback. Times of comfort and encouragement. Did I mention lots and lots of laughter?
This morning was no exception. Our group was very small today, which made for a more intimate time of conversation and prayer. I come home feeling so satisfied. I'm infused with the truth of God's Word. I'm built up by girls who love me. I've spoken more than 2 sentences in a row that don't contain the words Mommy, NO, come here, obey, don't do that, and are you listening. Ha ha!
These ladies are my core group. So if you are reading this...Pam, Jacqueline, Lannece, Steph, Kelli, Leah, Lauren, Kathy, Ruth Ann, Jenny...I love you. Carol and Alicia, I miss you. You are my "girls." Thanks for loving me despite my uglies. Thanks for doing life with me, and for being the ones I can count on to tell me as it is, and to build me up. You guys are the best!
