I was a little giddy about this week's prompt because I literally "JUST finished a meeting with the leadership team for my MOPS group. We spent two hours planning, laughing, contemplating, discussing, more discussing, and more planning about the next few months for our group. We hashed out details and tried to reason out the best way to approach certain subjects. Plus food and more laughter.
I am so thankful for the team we have assembled. It's ever changing as moms come in and out of seasons for serving. But each year the Lord pulls together some amazing women that all share a vision to reach more moms, to encourage each other, and to share Christ with these women. It's a beautiful thing!
Before we started tonight I read a blurb I found on line about MOPS mirroring a passage in Acts 2. The passage is about the purpose of their group. They are to meet together, break bread, find out what they have in common, share with one another and with those in need, and praise God while increasing in number. It's such a fitting passage for this ministry and I feel blessed to be surrounded by a team that feels the same way.
We don't all parent the same way, but we all want to be better parents.
We don't all have the same backgrounds, but we all want to reach the future of life in Heaven.
We don't all agree on the best snack at a meeting, but we all agree there needs to be snacks.
Okay, that last one got away from me. Thanks, team.
I'm linking this up over at Kate Motaung's for Five Minute Friday. Every week a one-word writing prompt is given and writers have five minutes to share.
This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
