Happy Valentine's Day

My new favorite thing to do is to create "Tablescapes" - as Sandra Lee from the Food channel says.

Jessica my oldest helped me decorate my new theme for this month. Hope you enjoy it! I know I am!

Section 13 Won!

Dear Ladies,

It's been a while since I've really posted on this blog. My laptop was not in working order. Thank God it's been repaired. There is so much to bring you ladies up to date on!

Last weekend, I had the privilege of meeting with Marsha Woolley and all the Women's Ministries Rep's of Pen-Florida at the Champions Gate Omni in Kissimee, which is a beautiful property!

The Fall Breakaway will be at the Omni property September 30 - October 2nd, 2010. The rooms are beautiful and I can't wait to try the lazy river! There is a beautiful spa area with steam room and jacuzzi with other services available. The ball rooms are very spacious and will handle our event well. The rooms and linens are plush and lovely. We will enjoy staying there for sure!

Pen-Florida Women's Ministries department is hosting the Hope tour with Marsha Woolley and friends. These will be held in March at three locations throughout Florida. The location that would be closest to us is Calvary Assembly of God in Winter Park Saturday, March 6th beginning at 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. The other locations are Lake Worth, March 20th and Jacksoville, March 27th.

There will be workshops galore with topics like:

*Not What? Been laid off, looking for purpose, find life and job too.
*Gumby Bounces Back, tips to stretching the family dollar back after a foreclosure, bankruptcy or divorce.
*It hurts, God-learning to live with chronic or terminal illness
*Overcoming depression
*Falling Sandcastles-facing a marriage in crisis
*Opposites Attract - Love and Respect
*Cover Girl - releasing hidden/private hurts
*Dry as toast - finding living water in the middle of a dry season
*Shop your closet - create a new look by mixing, matching and bargain hunting.
*Who me? Yes, even you can find time to exercise.

Please note this is a free event for our ladies. Of course, we would be responsible for transportation and meals, but it could be a day trip with no problem. Please encourage your ladies to attend the Hope Tour. We will be encouraged and blessed!

It's my pleasure and honor to let you know that you ladies of Section 13 came in First Place for Aline's Gift! Our section gave $5,236.46 to Aline's gift last year! I'm so proud of our ladies and churches for giving into this ministry. Marsha Woolley reported to us ladies that we were able to accomplish much because of us women here in Pen Florida! We are making a difference!

Marsha Woolley introduced us to a new ministry called, Run for Freedom with the first Dream Home here in the United States. This ministry helps girls and women that have been victims of Human Trafficking, YES! here in the U.S. This ministry is new to Pen-Florida and we are partnering with them to help.

Our portion to help is to purchase folding tables that break down for the girls to study on. These tables are much needed for them to study their school assignments and to study God's word in the chapel. I've committed our section to meet this need. Will you help me? We need to purchase 6 tables. If our churches pledge a small amount this need will be met easily. Thank you in advance for your help!

Just to review:
*Don't forget the Spring Hope Tour in March
*Remember to make a pledge for Aline's gift for 2010! We can double what we gave last year with the Lord's help!
*Run For Freedom - Dream Home (help them obtain 6 folding tables).

For more information, you may check the following websites for further details.

Looking forward to this new year and all that God has in store for his people!

You are loved!
