Fall Ladies Day

Today was our Annual Ladies Day. The "theme" was SOS (Selfishness Or Selflessness). It was wonderful and so uplifting. We had 3 speakers and my daughter Lacey Jo was one of the speakers. She did an awesome job (I'm a little partial!) It was so heartwarming for this momma to hear her speak and know that God is first in her life and she has grown to be a lovely young lady and  new wife. I'm very proud of her.  We had a delicious breakfast and then ended our time together with our annual Taco Salad lunch which is always a treat. My sister in laws and I giggled because as hard as we tried to keep our taco salad small...it ended up being HEAPING on our plate! HA! It was very edifying and encouraging to be with other Christian women who strive for the same things.  We are all very busy with our individual lives and jobs and families and responsibilities and yet we have a common bond of God our Father and Jesus our Savior. What a comfort to be around these ladies of all ages. 
A scripture and a few pics to leave you with.

Philippians 2:1-8 (King James Version)

 1If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
 2Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
 3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
 4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
 5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
 6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
 7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
 8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

I love getting together with other christian ladies...how wonderful to be able to hear your daughter speak, a heart warming moment indeed. ♥ In answer to your comment on my blog♥...on my keyboard the num lock is at the top left on the numeric pad and is labled num lock - but you can just hold down the alt next to the space bar on regular keyboard and press the numbers.To get a heart you can just use < and the number 3 with out pushing the alt.<3 or use the alt and the number 3 on numeric pad.♥ Hope this helps...I am not a good teacher.
