Amazing opportunity and Purse auction
OK this may not sound too "spiritual" but please read on.

Today, Saturday, I spent my day at an auction and luncheon to help raise money for a women's shelter at the country club.

Another lady in our church sponsored a full table and invited 7 of us to be her guests. All we were asked to do was to bring a purse for the auction filled with fun surprises.

We listend as one young woman shared her story and it brought back the memory of my cousins daughter. This married daughter was the mother of 3 boys. Very involved in her church and family.  NO one knew what she went through at home, even her parents.  Until it was too late.  The husband now will spend the rest of his life in prison and these boys without their mother.

Women we MUST do something to open doors for these women.  The reason  my 2nd cousin didn't speak up?  She was ashamed, afraid and thought, because the church says to honor her husband she would be looked down on.

I had not thought of her in years even though my cousin is raising her boys.
Lord forgive me for being blind to the things around me.
I loved the fact that the women in charge of the auction took time to print different scripture and put on each purse.
The scripture that was on my purse was

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry; the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. Psalm 34:15-16

Please Pray for the
Blessings, Debbie

 FRIENDS for Pink Saturday   and Anna's birthday.
Some of you saw the pink vanity I painted so thought I would share the birthday girl and I.


Today I thought I would share another classroom I painted. The theme for this room is friends around the world.  Each single word is "friend" in another language and then "Jesus is my best friend". Not only was this a fun room to paint it was fun to do the research. I don't know if it shows up on the pictures of the maps but I also painted a tack to point to all the places our church supports a missionary. This is a very busy room for some awesome 5 year olds. This is another of the rooms that I had 2 other ladies helping me paint.

Blessings to you!  Debbie
