On June 27, 2010 I posted this note on facebook to let the ladies know about what God had placed in my heart to start. I also sent it as an e-mail to those that don't have facebook. I thought it would be nice to post it here so that we have everything from the "beginning". And now......the note (e-mail)....
Do you feel dry? Parched? Want something to drink? Do you want to drink from the river that NEVER runs dry? The ETERNAL RIVER? If so, please join us for W.A.T.E.R. Group on Thursday nights. We will have our very first meeting on Thursday, July 15, at 7:00 p.m. at my house. You can message me for my address and directions (if you need them).
WHAT IS W.A.T.E.R. GROUP? Soooo glad you asked - It is Women After The Eternal River and our group's scripture is Psalm 42:1-3. I LOVE the way it is written in The Message: "A white-tailed deer drinks from the creek; I want to drink God, deep draughts of God. I'm thirsty for God-alive. I wonder, "Will I ever make it - arrive and drink in God's presence?" I'm on a diet of tears - tears for breakfast, tears for supper. All day long people knock at my door, pestering, "Where is this God of yours?"
It's a place for us ladies to come together and get to know each other. Share what's going on in our lives so we know how to pray for each other. A place for us to allow God to grow us more in Him. It's a place where we let GOD decide what we will do - it may be something different every week, we may decide to go through a Bible Study or we may just delve in to the scriptures. Come July 15 at 7:00 p.m. and let your voice be heard. We want to hear from everyone. I will have something ready to share that night to get us started, but if God gives you something to share, bring it. Share it. It will be appreciated.
The more ladies I talk to and get to know, the more I realize how many of us are going through much the same things. I always used to think I was alone. That's how the enemy wants us to think. It's time to come together and realize we are NOT alone.
I hope you will be able to attend. Some may not be able to come every week and that's okay, too. Just know that you are welcome to come any time you can.
If you'd like me to send out a reminder the week of the first meeting, just let me know. This is only a SMALL bit of information. There was no way to fit everything I wanted to say about W.A.T.E.R. Group here.
Looking forward to getting input from each of you.
In His Love,
