Again, I say REJOICE!!! I am so excited about an opportunity that God placed in my lap. This next year (Sept-May) I will be the publicity chairman for our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group. I had felt like God was calling me to do something with MOPS, but I just wasn’t sure what until I got the call – the actual physical call on the phone. My friend was asking me in a sort of round-about way because she was nervous I’d say no. I think my speedy “yes!” shocked and surprised her a little! We met this morning with the previous steering committee, and I am so excited about all that God has in store for us this next year!!
It’s super exciting to me to think that the newsletters I type up each month will be going into homes all over this city. It’s a piece of paper that represents God’s bringing us together from all parts of a huge metroplex to one place. We bring our differences, our similarities, our likes, our dislikes, our heartbreak, and our triumph together. And what we take away is far more than this simple piece of paper, but that paper is a link. And I get to be the one who prepares it. What an honor.
Our theme this year will be all about embracing our own stories – it’s titled “A Beautiful Mess.” I’m sure this will be the title of a blog post in the future… but for now, I’ll just leave you with the logo, and my excitement, and my request for prayer for our steering team, the team of group leaders, the team of Mentor Moms, and the team of ladies who will care for our children in MOPPETS. It may be summer break, but God is working in the hearts of each of these ladies to prepare each one of us for His plan and His goal for next year. May our hearts, minds, and eyes be open to see His will and His plan for our group.
