Thursday's Thoughts

More on Spa Day...

It is not often that you meet new people who instantly become a part of your life. This was the experience we all had when we met Lisa and Melissa. Their personalities are contagious. We had an absolutely wonderful time and were truly sad to see them leave.

If you ever have an opportunity to see these ladies, it is a MUST. I have never laughed so hard in my life. Their presentation included tips from how to inexpensively get dentist white teeth, to how to clean behind the toilet without ever bending over (you have to hear this one). And the greatest thing was with each cool tip there was a Bible verse to back it all up. It was great.

As I watched the ladies presentations, they were so funny, so uplifting and so spiritual that I could not imagine myself being anything like them. Then they began their testimonies. WOW! It was awesome to listen to the ladies explain their “troubled” lives and “not exactly perfect” families while still uplifting Jesus Christ! It was amazing to watch the other ladies who attended become enthralled with their testimonies and realize that these wonderful spiritual ladies do not live perfect lives…..and we are not expected to either.

God was ever so present that day. We thank the Spa Girls for sharing themselves with us in such a personal way. We all were reminded that God is still in control when we and those around us are not; that we have to get on our knees and turn it all over to him; and HE will take care of us!(and that we can clean the floor around the toilet without ever bending over)
