Thinking About JOY Again

I started the new year off with new excitement.  I am the new Women's Ministry Director for our church.  Once again I must refer back to one of my two life verses:
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4


My desire was to see more organization and ministry and so the Lord is giving me the honor to help bring that to pass.
It all happened very quickly but God blessed me with ideas and material to give our kick off night last Tuesday a great start.  Normally things would be done as a group and plans and decisions made as a group but to start I just jumped in and did it : )

It was all so good.  Thank you Jesus!

Little note cards folded over couple of packages of tea.
Back of the card had our theme verse of Psalms 126:3 The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with JOY.

Each lady received a gift bag that included a teapot and teacup with the verse on it.  I had bought 12 of these a few years ago with other intentions but God put it all together as I said.

We will use Elizabeth George's book to study and share each week and it was in the gift bag.  One of Precious Husband's customers gave him a check for the ministry when he shared with her about our church.  It was exactly enough to pay for the books : )

A note book was in their gift bag with special tabs for:
Bible Study, Prayer, Family, Encouragement and Notes

Precious Husband has been very encouraging and I am so thankful for that encouragement.  I couldn't do this without him.  Now he wants me to bake enough "goodies" so he can take them to Men's Ministry too.  I think I can handle that request.

The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with JOY
Psalms 126:3
