Sisters in Christ

I had opportunity to meet with an amazing group of women this evening. My Bible study group. Five homeschooling moms who love the Lord and desire to be the wives and mothers God calls us to be. We are working through The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer. I have found the book, for the most part, thought provoking and challenging.

I love our discussion time. The laughter and sarcasm. The honesty and openness. The woundedness and the healing. The safe place to be real and transparent. To learn and grow and change. No judgement. Encouragement and love and prayer.

With these women I have learned that I am dramatic. ME! DRAMATIC! Now, I know this comes as a shock to those of you who know me well, but I have learned to accept the truth. When I said to Mc that I "don't do drama well" that was a misrepresentation. Apparently I do it SO well that I had convinced myself that I had outgrown the drama of my youth. (I admit that as I think back on some key dramatic moments in my life, I am truly embarrassed and wish I could take back the ridiculousness. I do hope that any witness of my antics has graciously forgotten my foolishness and only remember my more sane and lovely moments)

With these women I have laughed and cried. Rejoiced and mourned. We have walked some difficult roads together but I am ever so thankful for this group of women - these friends. sisters in Christ. ♥
