The Women’s ministry at Alice Drive Baptist Church sponsored their annual Ladies’ Night Out this past Tuesday night. As usual it was a great event. The wonderful men of the church patiently served over 700 women a great meal. No matter how much we harassed them about needing ice or drinks, they kept their cool. Very impressive bunch!
There were tons of amazing door prizes and Judi Gatson from WIS TV encouraged all of us. She shared a recent tough, heartbreaking journey she had traveled on. She had us crying one minute and laughing the next. We were reminded of how amazingly perfect God’s timing always is, even when we don’t see it that way at the time. We were also reminded of how faithful He always is and how perfectly He cares for His children.
When we left that night, we felt well feed physically and spiritually. How precious to spend an evening with sisters in Christ.
We want to say a heartfelt thank you to the women of ADBC for loving on the women in our community so well. We would also like to suggest that y’all start doing a Ladies’ Night Out every month. I’m sure the men in your church would be more than happy to oblige!
Judi, in closing, read a poem that she ran across years ago. She gave it to us to share with you. Thought you might enjoy it.
Last week I threw out worrying, it was getting old and in the way
It kept me from being me, I couldn’t do things God’s way
I threw out a book on my past, didn’t have time to read it anyway
Replaced it with NEW GOALS, started reading it today!
I threw out hate and bad memories, remember how I treasured them so?
Got me a NEW PHILOSOPHY too, threw out the one from long ago.
Brought in some new books called I CAN, I WILL AND I MUST!
Threw out I might, I think and I ought - WOW, you should have seen the dust!
I ran across and old friend I hadn’t talked to in awhile
His name is GOD the Father, I really like his style.
He helped me to do some cleaning and added some things Himself
Like PRAYER, HOPE, FAITH AND LOVE – I placed them right up on the top shelf
I picked up something special and placed it at the front door
I found it, it’s called PEACE, nothing gets me down anymore
Yes, I’ve got my house looking nice, looks good around the place
For things like worry and trouble, there just isn’t any space.
It’s good to do a little house cleaning, get rid of things on the shelf
It sure makes things brighter, maybe you should try it yourself.
Be blessed and be a blessing to someone else!

Have a great week!
