Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

Get out Sunday

O.k. let me explain what this is all about. Last Sunday at church our Pastor told us that this year we were going to be having get out Sundays. He wants us to think of people in our community who we are in contact with and invite them to church with us. Well when I was sitting in church on Sunday a lady in our town was laid on my heart. I knew I was going to see her but was a little nervous about asking her to go to church. I don't see her everyday and when I do see her we are normally driving down the street and we just wave. Well yesterday she called me out of the blue. She said she wanted to come over and just talk. I had just laid down with the baby and told her that 3:00 P.M. would work for me. Well that didn't work for her but we set up a time for Monday afternoons while my kids are at piano.

I was so shocked when I got off of the phone because God is preparing a time and a place for me to invite this woman to church. It is so amazing for me to sit back and watch God orchestrate events in my life. This is amazing to me how much he cares about all of us. He had laid this woman don my heart and she called me out of the blue and now we are going to be meeting on Monday afternoons for 45 minutes. Wow God is amazing.

When God prompts you to do something pray and ask God to open the doors for you. He will not only open them for you he will be there with you when you walk through them.

That is very cool. Not only do you have an opportunity to share your faith, but some contact with another woman on a regular basis!

Susan, that is soooo cool. I just spent the weekend with the author of our homeschool curriculum (part of that time in her home; how totally cool is that?!!!) Anyway, the point made all weekend was, what are we, as Christian families, doing to further the Kingdom of God? This is IT. It's what you're doing in reaching out to your neighbor. You go, girl!
Tag, you're it.
