Mommy and Me

I joined Mom and some ladies from her church at a women's retreat this Friday and Saturday. Baptist ladies are so fun. Especially Mom.

What did I learn? I guess that I'm more valuable than I thought. Dr. Carolyn Gordon from Central Baptist Theological Seminary spoke on the theme of communicating love. On Friday night, we looked at the stories of some women in the Bible, famous (Eve, Naomi, etc.), infamous (Jezebel), and barely noticeable (Ever heard of Shiprah, Puah, or Abishag? Yeah, I thought not.) The point is, even those barely noticeable biblical women did some really important things, things valuable to their people and their God. When I am obedient, even in small things, I show love and it's important.

What a sweet picture of mother and daughter! Happy to hear that it was a good mother-daughter-new friends bonding experience. The word I am getting from the ladies at church is that you are a doll!
