I give a lot of shout outs to #biltmorebaptistchurch but many of my baby #hellcats were baptized at a medium sized traditional but yet super amazing and our family #church we call it the #WABC!
Weddings, baby showers, baptisms! Friends to last a lifetime! Laron was the Roman soldier of all times at Easter!
But the best memory for me was my experience with a friend we will refer to as "DW!" I had shared with my sweet Pastor Stan I just didn't have the funds to go to #Haiti after the earthquake, but I wanted to so badly! I really did want to go,but I was partly scared too! He had announced they still needed more medical folks. He said, "well we will just pray some more about it!" I did! Be careful what you pray for God might just answer! Next morning DW called and asked why I was not going, so I told her a little about why I was not going. She said "please don't let money be why you don't go!" I'll help you! I couldn't let her pay my way, plus we only had a couple weeks! Sure enough we had my passport expedited and she helped me go. She promised and I believe her that the pastor never shared! Our precious Lord laid it on her heart!
She and I, and many other more selfless people from that amazing church went and gave all we could to the well deserving people of Haiti!
I hope to always remember DW and her responding when her Spirit spoke to her! Many times we feel led to reach out to people and for whatever reason we don't! Listen to your inner self whatever you call that' "when the Holy Spirit speaks listen" Henry Blackaby.
LIFE CAN BE TOUGH…YOU’LL FACE ADVERSITY…BUT REMEMBER TO ALWAYS RISE ABOVE…BECAUSE YOU’RE WAY TO #ELEGANT FOR THAT. KEEP CALM, AND LOVE THOSE #SOUTHERNBELLES. WE’LL BE BACK NEXT WEEK.
Big love! Xoxo
