October marks the last meeting of Daughters Of Destiny until February 2013. The next time we meet so much would have happened.
Next time we meet...
...will know who the president of the United States will be for the next four years...President Barack Obama for a second term or Mitt Romney.
...we would have celebrated Thanksgiving with loved ones and we would have enjoyed a special time of giving thanks to God our father in heaven for all HE has provided and done for us...for the work he has done in us and through us by the power of his Spirit.
...we will have celebrated Christmas, the day Jesus Christ the son of God introduced himself to the world in human form who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! (Phillipians 2) HE HUMBLED HIMSELF AND BECAME OBEDIENT TO DEATH for us. This is why we celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!
...by the grace of God we will welcome in the new year and pray for the continued work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and through our lives.
...hopefully we would have spent time with one another, enjoying the sweet fellowship, encouragement and sharpening only the saint of God can experience.
This fall the start of the group for sons (of all ages) started and in January they will be officially meeting and inviting others. We pray blessings on their time and ask that this group of men would become the role models needed in this world. That by their example they would, "do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life". (Phillipians 2)
When we meet again we will be able to learn from other mothers and daughters as they share with us a lesson from the study guide to "The Princess And The Kiss" and we look forward to adding a craft to our meetings to help reinforce our study.
It has been such a blessing and an encouragement for my daughters and I to gather with you all in the name of Jesus. We look forward to seeing familiar and new faces as we continue meeting together.
