Tuesday Morning Bible Study

OK, I know I shouldn't brag about my Bible Study....but I can't help it!!!! Our Tuesday Morning Women's Bible Study is amazing!!! We have the best leaders and teachers! The gal in the brown coat is our Women's Bible Study Leader...Sherry...she's one of the best "preachers"..

I like to call her our own little "Beth Moore". She has a passionate love of the Lord and scripture!

This is our teacher Ann, she is a very devoted follower of Christ. Our class is "Walking in the Spirit" and our text book is the BIBLE. We are exploring the Fear of the Lord. Ann's love of scripture is contagious.

"To fear You, Lord, that is wisdom, And to depart from evil is understanding". Job 28:28
"Who are those that fear You? You will instruct them in the way they should choose." Psalm 25:12
"Blessed is everyone who fears You, Lord, And who walks in Your ways. " Psalm 128:1
"You take pleasure in those who fear You, O Lord, Who put their hope in Your unfailing love. "
Psalm 147:11

Crafting Sunday, November 9th

Here's a little project that I worked on......I got the idea from Karen Hermanson at church, she's always coming up with neat ideas.
Here we are down in the basement crafting...left to right.....Aunt P (Paula Hertz, Leesa's husband Dave's sister from Illinois), Grace who's on the floor, you can only see her head, Leesa who's having an especially good hair day, and Grant who's drinking a diet coke and sitting close to the cookies (a boy after my own heart!) We had a great time, even though it was a short time.

About my job......

High on a hill in Hamilton County, Indiana....Northview Christian Life Church stands...houses all around us! It is a vast mission field! Thank you Lord for our wonderful location!
These photos were taken from beside my car as I left work tonight. The colors are beautiful. This is our new parking lot in what used to be the back of the church. I'll get pictures of the church soon, the front is all torn off for our building project.

This is Kim....She's my good friend. We've been meeting together on Monday's for a while and sharing life and praying together. She works at Capstone our coffee shop. Here she is presenting me with my "refill" cup of coffee!!! It is a fringe benefit to see her almost every day I work. She always has a story of how God is working in her life.
Today Kim's story was this one: She has helped start a Ladies Bible Study on Monday night. One of the ladies is having a birthday and she wanted to make her a prayer basket. (An idea that came from Elizabeth George, the author, I think) It's a basket with things you can use to enhance your quiet time with God. Anyway...she wanted to do it in blue which is the favorite color of the recipient. Kim's husband was late coming home on Sunday, because he had to stop and pick up something that they won at the local CVS. It was a gift basket.....filled with all things blue!!! A blue throw, a blue coffee mug, blue this and blue that...she told me all the stuff and I can't remember. God provided all she needed for the gift. Wow!
"And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
This is my desk area...notice I have a large window.....I haven't personalized it yet, or moved anything around. The monitor is big, but it is great! I'm going to put up a Pottery Barn crown molding ledge on the wall with frames on it. They were out of stock so I'm waiting on it. It will be fun to make my space my own. There is a nice lateral file behind my chair... it is nice and roomy.
