So today had an early start and those of you who know me in person know that I don’t particularly like early mornings. You add in cold temperatures and I like them even less!
Well anyway I sucked it up and got on with the day. Today was the first Women’s Breakfast at RP (there may have been ones in the past but it’s the first i’ve organised!) I got to church just after 7:30am and my head chef for the morning had been there from 7 getting food bits cooking and other bits prepped – she’s amazing!
I finished laying tables and setting additional places as I laid 16 places and had meant to lay 20 places!
I moved bits from the kitchen to the worship annexe where we were eating and the butterflies had turned into small birds or something I was so nervous and excited all at the same time.
Mrs G arrived first followed by a few others and in the end there were 19 of us in total (lady 20 arrived a little late but she was there and that was the main thing). My Mum and my friends @KingFamily and her daughter came too which made it even better
We all tucked into a lovely cooked breakfast of sausage, bacon, egg, tomatoes, mushrooms, beans and toast. There was also fruit an yoghurt bits for those of us being healthy (or just inhaling the cooked breakfast!)
Following breakfast, the lovely Ruth (the pastors wife) talked to us about being women of God and being who God has created us to be. She spoke about Lydia (who is mentioned in less than one first but her actions are epic). She also quoted a verse from 1 Samuel.
The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7)
We then ploughed into the washing up. Doobs was there leading the charge lol. I stood in the kitchen trying to decide what to do first and she appeared offering her services as washing up lady – rock on!
We had all the washing up done and put away and all headed off just before 11. It was such a lovely morning albeit cold and early!
Hopefully we will have another breakfast in the future but I’m going to see if I can get a team of people together to help with the set up cooking and clearing up etc so it’s a team effort for the ladies by the ladies kind of thing.
Well first up I have a Swishing Party to plan. Bring it on.
