This Christmas

Aaliyah is spending this Christmas with her family in California.  Raymond and I are at home in Newport having a blast; but missing our little songbird.  These are two pics that her Aunt took of her.  Isn't she just adorable.  (sniff, sniff!!)
We call everymorning to sing her our "Goodmorning!" song and she sounds like she is adjusting well.  Who am I kidding...Aaliyah is having a blast; please pray for her mother and father!

December meeting - Godly Roles

Here is a copy of our Ladies Bible Study for December.   I just wanted to share this lesson to maybe be a blessing and encouragement to you.  Remember; God, our Designer, knows what is best for us.

Godly Roles : A Woman’s place

What exactly should a woman’s place be in the world today?

The world  (media, professors, etc.) tells us...

Scripture tells us.....

1 Timothy 3 (emphasis on verse 11,12)
Titus 2:1-5, 12 - 15
Ephesians 5:21 - 33
Proverbs. 31:10-13

From this, we summize that... (application)

“The Woman is the Holy Spirit of the Home.”

What does this statement mean to you?

“The woman wasn’t created from the man’s head or heel; but from his rib.”

What does this statement mean to you?

“The man was created in-complete; not the woman.”

What does this mean to you?

“She doesn’t rule the world, she rules the ones who rule the world.”

What does this statement mean to you?

“Followers make leaders more easily than leaders make followers.”

What does this statement mean to you?

“A follower follows even when he/she doesn’t have the right kind of leader.”

What does this statement mean to you?

This meeting was more a question and answer session than most.  I basically wanted to give the ladies some food for thought.  Most of what we discussed was foreign to them; but I think they have a desire to live for God, so they were open to what the scripture had to say to us.

Until next time,

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.  We did!  Raymond, Aaliyah and I went home to Oklahoma to visit my mom and family.  It was an extra special blessing to be able to see my brother's only daughter (he died in May 2006, she was born in June 2006).  I can't believe how time flies.  She is a beautiful, tall little four year old who is the spitting image of my brother.  (pictures soon to follow...I forgot my camera at home)

For Christmas Raymond and I will be alone.  Aaliyah is going to California to visit her grandparents and Raymond's sisters and brother and fam.  As the day approaches for me to fly with her to drop her off in California, I think to myself..."who's bright idea was this!?!"   I am going to miss my little songbird.  I am trying not to miss her now.  She is getting tired of my hugs and kisses.  Yesterday she told me to STOP!  Funny...It's time for number two.  When they are newborns you can hug and kiss them as much as you want with no complaints!

Until next time,
