Bring on some Cheer!



I am soooo ready for Christmas this year! Have you noticed that people seem to be getting in the Christmas spirit a lot earlier this year? With the state that our country is currently in, especially after the devastating results of the recent election, we need something to celebrate. I am personally looking forward to Christmas more this year than I think I ever have before. I can't wait to have my entire family together again. I have not seen my sister, Jane since her wedding day in July, so it will be a sweet reunion for us.

Something else I am looking forward to is our Atlanta Encounter (aka "Church4Chicks") online Bible Study that begins tomorrow. We are not meeting during the winter but wanted to provide a way for the ladies to stay connected and in God's Word. If you are a woman reading this blog and you would like to participate, you can purchase the Bible Study book, "On Purpose for a Purpose" by Shelley Hendrix at Amazon.com. To join the online Bible Study, go to www.AtlantaEncounter.blogspot.com. Shelley will be posting some discussion questions to go along with what we are studying, and you will have the opportunity to leave comments about what God is teaching you. The great thing about this online study is that you can be a part of it no matter where you live and you don't even have to leave your house.

Also, please pray for me because this coming Sunday I will be singing a solo with the choir at my new church here in the ATL. The music minister has kind of talked me up a bit, and I'm a little nervous that I may not be able to meet people's expectations :) However, most importantly I want Christ to show Himself through me. The song I'll be singing is "Take me Back" by Andrae Crouch. I will post a video of it on my blog next week.

Have a wonderful week, and stay in God's Word!

Jane, I'm proud of you! You're reading my blog! WoooHooo! I'm driving down sometime between the 15th and the 18th. I'm gonna play it by ear because our Christmas program is that weekend and I don't know how tired I'll be to leave the next day. Plus - I need time to pack. I can't wait to see you! Miss you too - Love you!
