I wish you knew how long I sat and stared at the cursor before starting this post. It’s like a tsunami in my head when I sit down to write. No joke.
Because I don’t know where to start with the happenings over the last few weeks, from Chelsea to the county jail, to Mentone, Townsend, TN and back to Rainsville, Al. I’m just going to jump in and start sharing in no particular order about how AMAZING women are.
Women who had loved hard, been wounded much and lost lots. Women who have been molested, abused, lost babies and husbands. Women who are lonely. Single women married women. Women with much, others broke as a joke. Women who are overjoyed and overwhelmed. What a privilege it has been to hear your stories of survival.
As I’ve sat, listened and learned from you I’ve seen good things. Grace and forgiveness. Grief and pain. I’ve heard joy, hope, and patience.
Precious Ladies, God, is doing GREAT things in YOU and through YOU in YOUR PLACES! What an honor it has been to come alongside you. Thank you, for sharing your hearts with me. Thank you for your transparency. For being brave and authentic. May this day be the beginning of something new. With our eyes fixed on Jesus let us finish well what He has started. May we be intentional with our time and the resources we’ve been given. Let’s LOVE MUCH, listen more and encourage at least one every.single.day. If your cup runneth over ask God to send you one woman with an empty cup. If you are the empty cup, submit yourself to God…draw near to Him and He will draw near to you.
On a lighter note except that it’s no small deal amidst my meanderings over this past weekend, I found myself being adult bullied. True story. People I love, who love Jesus and love me bullied me into riding a mountain roller coaster. I posted the picture on Instagram this morning and will probably delete it this afternoon because the pictures are terrible and embarrassing because I’m a chicken. It’s true. I get scared too.
In other happenings, some crazy talented ladies are working on the NEW WEBSITE, and I’m so EXCITED & CAN HARDLY WAIT TO SHARE IT WITH YOU BECAUSE THESE GIRLS ARE GOOD!! & THEY DO GREAT WORK!!!! BTW- ALL CAPS and lots of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is my excited online voice!!!
In farm news, piglets are due any day AND WE (the boys and me) ARE EXCITED!!! & CAN HARDLY WAIT (the cowboy doesn’t speak in all caps-ever) Piglets are favorite except for baby calves and baby goats. OK, its’s a tie.
In store news, it’s almost seed time. Which is hard to believe because wasn’t Christmas yesterday? Potatoes have arrived! Did you know you can plants potatoes in a pot on your porch? We’ve rearranged again to make room for #PrayBig products! We are working on our online store! STAY TUNED.
Lastly, the fifth #PrayBig VIDEO is ready on YouTube.
We’ve listened to you and have heeded many of your suggestions. Thank you for your encouragement and allowing God to use YOU to answer my #PrayBig prayers.
Keep on, keeping on sisters!
