Yesterday I had the pleasure of sharing God’s Word with the Women of Grace Sunday morning Life Group at our church serving as a guest teacher. Our church is Humble Area’s First Baptist Church, in Humble, Texas, right outside Houston.
What a BIG group of beautiful ladies. The room was full, with almost every seat taken. What fun to see old friends, and meet so many new ones.
The class participation was wonderful; many questions and comments, explanations and shared experiences. These ladies have been well-taught by their regular teacher, Joyce Aylor. They are blessed to have her.
Along with serious studying of the Bible we had a lot of laughs. I was “forced” (Ha Ha!) to reveal my age. Actually, I love to tell my age; it gives me an excuse for a long list of physical complaints and limitations. ~Grin~.
I don’t mind telling you that after lunch of a take-out Strawberry Fields salad from Wendy’s, I crashed; what a perfect word to describe how I felt. Maybe it was the excitement or that age thing. I’m fine this morning; it only took an afternoon nap and 8 hours sleep last night to revive me.
It was a wonderful day and I was blessed beyond words. I truly look forward to the next three Sundays with them.
I love the Scripture found in 2 Corinthians 4:16 (NIV),
“It is written: ‘I believed; therefore I have spoken. With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak.’ “
‘Til He Shouts!
Awesome news. So happy for you and them!

Thanks, Marie. Hope all is well with you.
I loved reading about your experience yesterday. I know they loved you! What a sweet blessing for all.
It took me back to Just the Girls. Love and miss you!
Lyndsay, The days with you in “Just The Girls” class were wonderful days. We were a great team, weren’t we? I probably drove you crazy, but you handled it all very, very well. I have nothing but happy “JTG” memories. “JTG” wouldn’t have succeeded so well without such amazing support from the church and you. My days working with you in the women’s ministry were extra, extra special, also. Happy times!
Love and miss you, too.
Soooo glad to hear that you had a full class! Love that they supported you! God bless you, Joyce

Hi Joyce, The class ladies were wonderful, but I know they missed you terribly. Have fun on your trip.
I had gone to the church service and it had been over for a rather long time and still no sign of Adele. I thought to myself, the longer it took for her to come down the better the news about how the class went. When she came down, with two friends, she was clearly happy and excited and that was a joy for me to see.
Yes, I was. Thanks for your patience.
I thoroughly enjoyed your teaching of God’s word, as always! Great classroom of ladies! I must share with you regarding you telling your age – there were several comments being whispered around me saying “she does not look her age”. And I must agree… You are a beautiful lady inside and out!
I may have to share 2Corinthians 4:16 – I love it.
Looking forward to the rest of your teaching for the month of June.
Sheila, You are a good friend. It was wonderful to have you there, and I’m happy to hear you will be back. Hmmmmm! I wonder how many others will come back????
Really pleased there was a good crowd. WOG has been blessed with outstanding teachers who loved God, His Word, and helping us want to know more and more. 😀
Kathy, It would have been a perfect day if you had been there. *Sniff* Seriously, I miss you and so does everyone else. Enjoy your trip and stay safe. Write when you get back.
