Hello my dears..
This post is about our Keepers of the Home meeting this past Saturday..
We always have a blessed time...
This meeting was a bit different as one of our Keepers invited us to her home to have our meeting...
We enjoy doing this once in awhile..
Thank you, Melody... oxox
Here are Melody (whose home we were in) and Steph who is helping with the breakfast..
Melody had everything ready for us..
Lovely vintage plates that she knows we all love.. smile..
Susan shares some good tidings with us..
God is so faithful...
We all helped with breakfast and then had some wonderful fellowship.. Sharing God's blessings the past month..
After refilling our coffee cups we moved on to the lesson...
The lesson concerned our prayers and aspirations for the best place on earth..
We discussed our THRESHOLDS...
It is the first place of welcome to our homes but it also provides the protection for our family..
Here we can go in and close the door on the world and provide a haven for our dear ones..
We noted that this is the place that makes us available or not to others..
We also talked about the fact that this is where we make our first impressions with the outside world..
How do we come across when we answer the knock at our door?.. Are we Christ like in our welcome?..
Is our threshold neat and tidy?...
We also decided that the main thing is to welcome Jesus not only into our homes through the doorway but also through the doorways of our hearts as the most welcome of guests…
We looked up some Biblical references...
Such as John 10 - 9
Jesus Christ is the door...
Exodus 12-7, Psalms 141-3, Deut. 11-20.
The doorway is mentioned many times in the Word..
Then we looked over our homework and everyone had a lovely journal... I was proud of them all.. They are enjoying this, too..
Our homework this month is concentrated on our DOORWAYS...
So with that in mind we made some nice welcome wreaths..
This is our friend Jackie..
I believe she is giving me some lovely instructions.. smile..
Here are a few of the wreaths..
I posted a couple of pictures last post..
I think I missed a couple of the wreaths but anyway, you get some idea of our activities...
Just wingin it...
This is Jesse's wreath...
Well, my dears that is the gist of it all..
We did have a blessed day..
When one of the dear girls told us that this was the best day of her month and another added that she looks forward to this day from one meeting to the next my heart filled up..
As I was leaving a dear little whisper in my ear..
Thank you. Faye for praying for us..
It was my turn to whisper, "Thank you, Jesus"...
I so needed those words of encouragement and only He knew it..
He is always on time...
The homework is ready and I will email it out to you..
Could you please let me know if you would like it..
Just leave a comment with your address or email me..
Thanks so much for visiting..
Love hearing from you all..
Remember to ...
KEEP THE PORCH LIGHT ON..
