It was just summer, I look up and Fall has arrived!!
It has been a very busy September to be sure.
I kept meaning to sit down and blog, it just never happened.
Busy with Ms. Khloe and little Ellery, the time flies by.
I stepped down from the Women's Ministry Team, freed myself up to
take some classes, I do love the study of my faith.
On Monday evenings I'm taking a class called The Way of the Heart, taught by the Pastor of my Church.
The Way of the Heart Course is designed to be a robust and extended training in the Christian life. It is an eight-month experiential, communal, and theological journey into the depths of our call to participate in the Triune life of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is the intent of this course to see our individual stories as sharing in not only the stories of others but the grand story of God Himself, and this will be accomplished through in depth reflection on the Christian life, open and honest sharing, and a furthering of the prayer life.
Big commitment but I'm loving it!
On Tuesday mornings I am taking my very first BSF class, (Bible Study Fellowship) and I'm very excited about it. The study is of the book of Revelation. I believe a seven or eight month commitment as well.
On Tuesday evenings Bob and I are back with our original Small Group doing a study on the book of Hebrews. So happy to be back with our old friends.
Whew....little overwhelming to see it all laid out together....
I have also been on the journey of planning (along with an amazing team),
Women's retreat for the last 6 or so months.
The First weekend of October is the big event and I sense it's going to be awesome.
It's such a blessing to be a part of blessing the women of our church with a weekend away from their responsibilities of home. A time where they can actually retreat, relax enjoy the hot springs, pool, or taking some long naps! We also have an amazing speaker lined up, Carol Hopson, who spoke to us last year and was very well received.
Not gonna lie, I will be glad when the weekend arrives,
and glad to have another one in the books and behind me.
The two weeks leading up to the event is full of last minute details,
Little bits of stress here and there, all the while hoping we haven't forgotten a thing!
I haven't managed to get to enjoying all of your blogs as much as I would like...
maybe October will allow more time to visit you and to blog my thoughts.
(Seems I said this last month?)
This life is a journey glad to be on it with each of you !
It's what echos from my heart today....
