The precious women of God in our lives

Patty Bartlett, Beth Jones, Diane Bishop

Today was a long but good day.¬† This morning, my friends Patty Bartlett and Diane Bishop, the speakers for our Wash Over Me ladies’ retreat here in Butler, stopped by so we could pray about the retreat.

I laid out Ray’s grandmother’s antique china teacups on the dining table, lit a scented candle, put on some water to boil, and set out the honey and a variety of herbal teas for us to enjoy sipping as we chatted and¬†prayed.¬† Here is a pic of the three of us,¬†sitting in my dining room today.¬† Don’t ya just love the bathroom toilet as the right elegant touch for the photo’s background, LOL!¬†

After¬†tea and prayer, ¬†I met¬†sweet friends Lois Graham and Kimberly Ehlers in my¬†Prayer, Purpose, Passion webinar room at CWA to give them a “tour” of the room before our exciting Step Up! webinar on August 31.¬†

Oh, you should have joined us girls today Рwe had so much fun and laughs!  But the webinar will be even better.  If you have not already signed up for this event, be sure to sign up today as room is limited! It is going to be a blast!

This afternoon as I reflected on the day, I felt so thankful to Jesus for the wonderful women of God He has brought into my life. I had a poor relationship with my mother growing up as a child, and God has seen to it to bring many spiritual mothers and sisters across my path through the years to pray for me, encourage me, and impart His truth and wisdom into my life. I don’t know what I would do without these beautiful women of God who are such precious gifts to me.

What about you?  Who are the women in your life who are important and who help you to walk along in this journey of life?  Be sure to let them know how thankful you are for their presence in your life and how much you love and appreciate them!

    Yes, Beth, I am thankful for the women of God in my life. I have had many. A few of my favorites: my mom, my mother-in-law, my three sisters, Laura, Mary and Carol, and my best friend Pam. They have all been there through so many things with me over the years. I love them!
