Wow what a day!
It's been almost a week since our luncheon and I'm still floating on a cloud. It was an amazing day for COJ. We had so many beautiful women at the Stanley's. I so appreciate my sweet friends for allowing 100 women invade their home. The food was amazing. My board and Leadership Team can cook!!! I love how they work so great together. I know this is such a gift from God. They serve and they laugh together. What a joy for me to watch as they serve our Lord with a joyful heart.Joyce Lee gave a sweet testimony about her son and sweet family receiving love from COJ. She then gave a wonderful check and encouraged others to do so. God began to work! I really think God wanted to show off for us that day because He definitely was there! We received 3 times more than we did last year. This will enable us to do more for His Glory!Yesterday I received an email that God had called home one of the Cure children that attended our COJ Christmas Party for Cure. Kristin said as she met with the mother and grandmother at the hospital, the first thing they said was how much they enjoyed the Christmas Party. Now, I realize this party will not cure these children of cancer but it sure can give them a laugh or two. I'm so thankful they come as a family and that for a moment of time, they can forget cancer. Thank you Father!Reminding myself today that God is in control of all things. Nothing is too difficult for Him. As I know Him more, the more I trust Him, the more I trust Him, the more I feel His presence. I pray that today that you too will seek Him with all your heart.Psalm 27:3-6Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident. One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.May He put a new song in your heart today!In Him,Dot
