Yesterday, Todd and I celebrated our 9th anniversary! We had a lovely evening. We first went to see the movie, Madagascar, and then we went to Outback for dinner! I've wanted to go there for forever. Glad I can check that one off my "to do" list! Anyway, we then spent an hour browsing in Books A Million, and then we headed to our favorite place in the whole world, WalMart. Todd needed some new things for summer, so we shopped for Father's Day and got him decked out decently. :)
I got a call this morning. Evidently, Lori Dorning resigned as chair of the Women's Ministry Team several weeks ago. I'd like to go visit Lori. She's really been on my mind here of late. Both she and the WMT. Sometimes I feel like we have several different groups of women. It's strange. God's really been speaking "unity" to me for several weeks. I wonder how that comes into play. I need a verse for this aspect of my life and my church's life . . . Romans 15:1-7.
Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, "THE REPROACHES OF THOSE WHO REPROACHED YOU FELL ON ME." For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God.We are supposed to meet tomorrow night and pray and discuss the next steps. God, I want to hear Your voice on this. Please show me how You would have me to particpate.
More later. Whole house to clean!
