|Thank you for your prayers. It was a fun evening. The mom who was going to have the girls do a bit of work on their silver project decided to make this a fun night, so we didn’t do the work. We have a whole year to complete it, so it is not such a bad thing. The girls spent a block of time playing tag, we ate tons of food, they also spent a block of time choreographing a dance. We sat back and watched and enjoyed. Some of us made friendship bracelets, and the moms and I talked. The girls watched Madagascar, then went downstairs for a bit, at 2 in the morning I went down and found them in the middle of a game, telling them it is late. They finally came upstairs wanting another movie which we vetoed, and finally settled down. They are now sleeping, so I thought I would take advantage of that for a bit of Bible study and Xanga (we are in a library).
God did answer my prayer and an opening came. My relationship with these women is friendship evangelism for I see them quite often. We started talking about the Dali Lama who came in our area speaking of peace. One mom was very impressed with his Nobel Prize, but I pointed out that for me, I couldn’t be impressed having come from a New Age background, that just didn’t work for me. She said that I had a much more interesting life before I became a Christian. I disagreed. They both know my past and testimony so I pointed out that in all my New Age experience and the 20 years of therapy that there was a lot that never got resolved. But in four years of being a Christian, God has done more than all the past to heal me and bring me joy. I then told them that I used to not like God very much, hated Him in fact, even when I was forced to attend Mass with my kids. It took Pastor Don years to help me find Jesus. But what I have now is better than any organized religion, I have a relationship with God. That was my seed for last night. Pray that it grows. And know that it was one of the moms who brought up the subject, not me.
Have a blessed Sunday.
