A Relaxing Summer Evening

I participated in a great get together tonight with the ladies of our church. It was the perfect summer evening as we gathered in a backyard gazebo! "Relax" had it's name everywhere.

It was nice just to chit-chat back and forth - smiles and laughter abounded!

Then we shared some heartfelt burdens around the group as we prepared for some serious prayer time. What a wonderful comfort to know we have a God that not only hears our prayers but answers too!

Our Bible study topic was Cultivating a Healthy Mental Attitude. Boy, did I need this! It made me realize how easy it is to let my mind dwell and feed on negative thoughts and attitudes. I love how the Bible gives such clear ways of keeping our eyes on the Lord.

Afterwards we headed to the kitchen for some yummy homemade banana split sundaes, and more fellowship.

As we were saying our goodbyes, the thing that stood out to me most is how God could bring together ladies from all walks of life and backgrounds and that because of Him, we can be such good friends. What an awesome God!
