Christmas, Thank you


WOW!! Can I just tell you that when you called on God for me…HE ANSWERED!!!

I have to say, last night was the MOST fun! I was only the teensiest bit nervous!

I arrived early, took lots of pictures and did much visiting with precious friends that are more like family. My sister Aimee surprised me, because she told me she couldn’t come to the service. When she came in I was headed to meet her and hug her sweet neck and I noticed she had on a shirt just like one I have! I told her so! Then I looked down at her feet. My shoes. She grinned and said, everything I have on is yours. She had left work and went straight to my house and changed clothes and hurried on over (about an hour drive)! I was thrilled!! God is good.

When my dear sister/friends, Susan and Kathy (a.k.a. my Pastor’s wife) walked in —it was like a visit from Wanda! I just cried! So, up to that point I was doing fine…(really it was okay)…but the LORD was so good to keep me calm!

THANK you dear friends. I had prayed so long about this and had so much stuff to share, but told the LORD that He needed to weed out what wasn’t necessary (I called it hogwash) and just help me deliver what was needed for the hour and for the almost 400 women who were there. AND He DID! We laughed and we cried—God is good. All the time.

I love you all. You are one incredible bunch of friends. If you read here—you are my friend. I appreciate you!

By the way, 24 Sisters of Faith shirts left for Africa this morning! HOW ABOUT THAT GOD WE SERVE!!! Isn’t He just amazing! Girls, if you allow Him full control….and are obedient….HE will BLOW YOUR MIND!!!

The slide show is of the “Tea” from last night! Enjoy!
