Gathering



When seasons change there is always a period of adjustment and change.  Sometimes it can be hard to change or let go of something, but there are also times when you feel blessed to have had that time, and are now ready to move on.  For the past 2 years, I've been a part of an amazing moms group that met twice a month at a local church.   I've really enjoyed it, but it was time for that season to end.  However with endings, always come new beginnings, which always excites me!

One of the things I've really enjoyed over the last two years was sitting around a table with a group of women and just talking about life.  It's during those times that we share what is going on in our lives, encourage one another, cried together, laughed, and asked a lot of questions.  I also loved the way we have gone out into our community and done service projects or just enjoyed a night out on the town.

Over the last two years, I've also realized that ministry isn't just done in a church.  I've been blessed with a house that is probably the most important place that I will have and can use to effect people's lives.   This year, I have felt more and more called to use my home as a gathering place.  As a woman, I feel the need to bring other ladies together.  I, myself long for deep relationships.  Each woman desires to be known and this can be done by inviting people into our little world.

I'm excited to see what this next season will bring.  I know that it will mean using my home to gather people together.  I even asked my husband to build me a table to seat at least 12 people.  I can't wait to see how God uses this space and my home to bless others and to offer a place for Him to be known.
