I Love a Good Theme

Having served in Women's Ministry for the past 13 years, I love a good theme. I love for everything to be a part of the theme for my women's events--yes I am a theme junkie!

Friday and Saturday I was at Pickwick State Park in Savannah Tn. speaking at a retreat for Meridian Baptist Church. I spoke on storms. Which these ladies had experienced first hand in January when tornadoes ripped through Jackson, Tn. But this is how good God is (which I totally think He loves themes too!) anyway, I woke up in the middle of the night to rain beating against the window of my motel room and it splashing into the lake right outside my window--beautiful. How sweet of God to add rain as a touch of affirmation--I am not sure how Susan Hopper arranged that with the Lord but I was thrilled.

These ladies were so sweet, so much fun and God is obviously doing amazing things in their lives and in their church. I was blessed to be a part of their retreat. I loved hearing their stories of different storms that God has brought them through and some that they are still in the middle of and trusting God to get them through.
