Let us give thanks. It is Thankful Thursday.
This month, August, we are all meeting up with Laurie of Women Taking A Stand and in September we will share our thanks with Iris of Grace Alone.
This week my heart is full.
I work with some of the MOST amazing women in our church office. I tell you what, working in the office of our large church has opened my eyes. The people who work there are under paid and over worked. They deal with life and death problems and the fates of eternities.
They love Jesus and work tirelessly in the face of complaints about the donuts or the coffee, or the bathrooms, or the music or ..... or...... and..... and....
But, they love Jesus and they serve. I count it an amazing blessing to be on the team of Women's Ministry. These women I work with are amazing mothers, wives and servants of Jesus. They care deeply for the healing of the women in our congregation and for their spiritual growth. They give hour upon hour, their personal financial resources and their tears to help other women discover the joy of living for Christ.
So, today I give thanks with a heart filled up for the unusual blessing of working in a church office, even though I am unequally yoked. But mostly I give thanks to our Lord because these friends, like all of you, are my forever family. My eternal family.
I can't wait to hug your necks in heaven. I truly long to meet you. Happy TT. What are you thankful for?
Be blessed, Lynn
