Soul Sisters in the Fall...

Oh...... I can't tell you how excited I am over a new ladies group (to me anyways) and bible study that I have just started attending.
S
oul Sisters is the name of the group... It's sorta new to me because I had known about the group in our church that meets on Thursdays (I almost started going a couple years ago, but then didn't)... And I kinda forgot about it... til now!

Our group "leader", the lovely Pastor Laura, is the sweetest and kindest lady. She makes you feel sooo welcome. The group is all about Soul Sisters in Christ and as a dedicated close friend-kind-of thing.

The bible study we are doing is "Discerning the Voice of God" by Priscilla Shirer, which can be found here. The jist is, how to recognize when God speaks to you. So far it's been totally wonderful. I was thrilled and passionate about this study because, well, I've come to wonder sometimes if God is talking to me or is it ME thinking this or that.... and to tell you the truth- the study has just supported my belief that He most definitely is talking to me! I can look back on periods in my life where I thought, yes, this has got to be God BUT (as doubt sets in)... and only two weeks into the study I KNOW at times it definitely was... God is so truly amazing! I am really so excited about this... ;)

If you are in the Flower Mound, TX area and are needing some time "Discerning the voice of God"... you might just check it out! You can read more about it HERE.

On a different note.... what are your thoughts on this weather??? (for those of you in north Texas) Oui! I know many are getting really sick of the rain, but for me, it's been kinda nice for a change of scenery. I don't like that it's made a muck of flooded areas for many.... but for today, since it hasn't been too rainy (in Lewisville), and warmer feeling... I just get the feeling of FALL sitting here looking out the window. And I REALLY enjoy that feeling! Fall IS here, and I L-O-V-E fall!
How about you?

Hey there. We are so close in proximity here in Texas. I am north of Frisco. Today's weather has been absolutely awesome! This cool front is just what we needed around here.

The bible study sounds great. I have just started a new one also--"Women of the Bible."

Hop over and follow when you get a chance.

I was so glad to hear from you!!!!Here it is time for Silver Bella & again... I don't get to go. DARN! Hope you guys have fun though. I had planned on going & had a roomate (LuLu from Coastal Sisters) but, her husband is in The Army Reserves & was called up. She has 5 dogs & no one to take care of them if they are both gone...so that was that. I will live through you guys posts & pictures again. I am going to Adorn Me which is an all jewlery event from the guys that do Art Unraveled. I am excited about that. I will take a class from the designer I went to take classes from in California last spring (Diana Frey). Glad you are doing well. I MISS HEARING FROM YOU! Take care.
