For the past 2(ish) years, I have been blessed to be a member of a Beth Moore Bible Study group. It was such an answer to prayers to be included initially, since at the time I didn't really know anyone in town and was quite lonely. This study not only gave me a weekly accountablility for my walk with God, but also a group of supportive women that cared about me and prayed over all the things going on in my life. They were a mixture of women my age and around the age of my mom, nurses, teachers, SAHMs, students, and from all different backgrounds. We experienced births and miscarrages, engagements, break ups, and weddings, illness, and recommitments to God. These women gave me hope, insight, friendships, and a family in a place that I once felt like I had no one. I wouldn't be who I am today without these amazing women!
Yesterday, We all met together for my going away lunch at Sadie's (seriously some amazing Mexican food...you must go if you ever visit ABQ). Spending this time with them, means so much to me.
Thank you Cyndi, Janell, Katie, Dena, Liz and Liz, Monique, Helen, Lindsay, Melissa, Melissa, Sheri, Anne Marie, Dolores, and Gina. You ladies have given me so much, more than I could ever repay or thank you for!
