Bible Study Tomorrow at the Abbe

We will be meeting tomorrow at 6:30 P.M. at the Abbe. Bring your Bible, Esther book, prayer journals, an open heart, and maybe you could bring a friend! There will be food!!

Next time you sit and chat with God, maybe throw in a word for anybody who is emotionally hurt. It is hard to look at somebody who you know is in pain and know that there is nothing that you can really do. Well, there is something that we can do. Pray. Prayer is the most powerful weapon that we could ever have and we need to use it!

Don't Forget....

Hi everyone! It is amazing that God answers even the smallest and most unimportant prayers, like when we get a group of girls together just so we can pray for snow! He heard us, and He answered. Sometimes though, it can feel like God isn't there or like He doesn't care about us. Maybe when we think that though, He is standing right in front of us, but we are just too caught up in our lives and what we think is so important. Its very hard to put everything aside and focus on what God is trying to tell us and just listen to Him, but usually that is the best solution to our problems!

We will be having Bible Study on Thursday Night at 6:30- 8:00. It will be at the Abbe. Remember to bring your Bible, Esther Book, a friend and a hungry tummy!

 We only have to get through 5 more days of school and then we can enjoy our wonderful families and a few days off from school!

Can't Wait till Christmas!

It is really easy to get anxious at Christmas time! You find yourself waiting for the Christmas Eve service, waking up on Christmas morning, getting a few days off from school, and this year waitng for it to snow! Only 13 days 'till Christmas!!!!

Girls, don't be afraid to comment on the posts. We would love to know that you are reading the blog. Feel free to ask/say anything.

Hey Guys

 Hope you all are enjoying this wonderful snow. I know many of us have been praying for it!

I am a little bit challenged when it comes to technology, so I couldn't figure out how to get the actual song and video on the blog! I had to settle with giving you a link to it. I know Karen has should me how to do it, but apparently I have forgot. Don't worry, I will learn again and hopefully remember for the next time I want to share a song with you!

My prayer for all of us is that we remember what CHRISTmas is really all about and that we don't get caught up in the presents and decorations.

Luke 2:11
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

We had 3 great speakers last night at Bible Study. They talked about freedom and love. It doesn't matter how many mistakes we have made or what we have done wrong, God still loves us. We don't need to feel like we are all chained up, because God is right there to forgive us and give us freedom from the guilt. I can't preach it nearly as good as Ben did!!!

Don't forget that we have Bible Study Wednesday. We'll be doing Esther 3 in our books. Hope to see you there!

HE is the Light

Sometimes we feel like we are in complete darkness and nobody is there. But somewhere in all of our darkness there is a light shining. The light is God. Just remember that He cares about you more than anything and He won't let you go alone in your darkness. ♥

Golly Gee!!

Hello, hello, hello!!!

So glad to have you pop in here.  Just to let you know, I'll be looking for comments from you...just go to the place after the post that says COMMENTS and click on it and write a note and sign your name and click on anonymous, if you need to  and then we will all be able to see what you wrote.  If there is abuse on this level, then I will have to approve all comments before they post, but hoping I don't have to worry about it.

As Libby reported below, we headed into J-town on Friday for some great food and music.  I was going to see Point of Grace, because I know them and they have wonderful music and have had for years... and lots of other people were headed in for that other guy...Jason something or other...

After introducing Jason Castro as the warm-up, and listening to him sing, I wanted to head back into the lobby to get HIS cd.  His voice and style of singing are very nice and I don't watch American Idol, so I didn't know he had a huge following from there.  The whole dreadlocks took a little adjusting, but it works for him so...!!!

Then Point of Grace came on and WOW!!  It was music that I have loved for quite a while and some newer stuff.  They were gearing up for a Christmas Tour, so the snow that we had, put them in the mood!!  You can read about their Jamestown Adventure here.
When I grow up, I want to be just like them....their voices and the harmony...could have listened all night...oh, wait....I DID!!!

Can't wait to see you all on THURSDAY night at ABBE CHURCH...Note the change in location and date.  We're starting to adjust to the Basketball schedule, so please bear with us.  We also have something special planned for the NOVEMBER 30 meeting.... SO remember to do your homework of Esther 2, write something on your prayer journal and bring it along with your Bible...we are going to have a GREAT TIME TOGETHER....
yes OF COURSE there will be food!!!!

Point of Grace

Last night we went to a Point of Grace concert! It was a lot of fun. The most intriguing part of the night was the opener, Jason Castro. His long, matted dreadlocks kept our interest! We wondered how he washed his hair, if the dreadlocks hurt his head, and what might be in them?
The music was very good, and it was a blessing that we could go!

The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.

We'll give this a try...

This is the beginning of an experiment.  A way for us to get together and discuss, in addition to the every two week get together time.  A way to keep that momentum going and to keep you journaling and reading.
All the 789's are invited to join in with discussion.  On the bottom where is says "comments", just click and then you can leave a comment as anonymous, and just sign your name.  We'll give it a try and hope it will work as well or better than a facebook group.
