Mana's photo skills

This morning I went to my Sis-in-law's church for a MOMS TIME event. It was wonderful. I really liked how they set it all up. We had some social time while everyone was arriving. They had a guest speaker. Then we had a discussion time at our individual tables. The table leaders asked questions to get the conversation going. I was at a table with some wonderful ladies in which I have never met. I survived and happen to enjoy listening to the conversations. I have met some of the women before at different times. Some I met when I visited their church with my Sis-in-law, others I met through my Mother-in-law. (Some of her friends attend this church) My Sis-in-law is the MOMS TIME coordinator. She had to speak at the beginning of the event. She did very well. It was a great experience and I am looking forward to the next one.

Our table leader asked us to trace our hand and then put our name in it. Then she told us about Isaiah 49:14 - 16.

But Zion said, "The LORD has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me."

15 "Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!

16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.

Sometimes, with in the trials we are going through, we think God has forgotten us. He has not. He has engraved your name on the palm of His Hand! How wonderful is that!

One of the points the guest speaker made was that we need to have God so close that we look through Him at our circumstances instead of looking through our circumstances to see Him. Her example was when we a far off from a city, it looks pretty small, but when we are standing at the foot of the skyscraper, it is huge!

After the MOMS TIME event, I went to eat lunch with my Sis-in-law and niece.

I picked up Mana from school and after she got her homework done, I tried to sit down and read my two chapters of "Captivating" again. I took my coughing medicine and it made me sleepy. I decided to take a nap.

Picture of the day....
"My daughter's handy work!" LOL! She tucked me in!

What a super neat blog you have Tammy! Didn't you love the speaker at Mom Time? Thanks for recaping because I so need to hear it again. I love the verse and the handprint that your table leader did. I should do this and put it on my fridge to look at everyday. Hope you have a great weekend.


p.s. I love the pictures your friend took of Mana. They are amazing!
