Tea Parties and Manicures

One of the best things about having girlfriends, is the freedom we have to pamper one another.Joy was treated to a tea party last night, complete with Victorian Rose teapot and cups. No detail was left undone from the tea biscuits to the scones. As with every pampering session comes a full manicure and a bounty of gifts. Maybe the best pampering of all was the love and attention paid to another girlfriends heart.Perhaps it was the lifting of prayers mixed with tears in of her hospital room. Or it was just taking time to consider what truly makes our girlfriend feel special in her hour of need.

Thank you to these special girlfriends who took time to pamper Joy.
Thank you to my special girlfriends who take time to pamper me.
Today maybe you need to pray about someone who needs to be pampered.
Or perhaps maybe you need a bit of pampering.

What ever the need, don't delay listen to your heart and obey the calling., it will bless beyond all measure.

Thanking the Lord for girlfriends,
Diane "Hope"

Joy and I were together in heart last night, tea-partying together, though distance separated us. Originally, before Joy's surgery was postponed, she was to have been at my side at a Ladies Dessert Tea at our church last night, her first hopeful outing following the original surgery date. But, I had to go alone, and so, two dear girlfriends decided to take the "Tea Party" to Joy!!!! No words can express the gift that was to both of us!!! And, now as I anticipate leaving and seeing Joy shortly, we will both have Tea Party Experiences to share. And, we have just left Christopher, who joined John and I for breaky as we recognized Mom and Dad's 67 Wedding Anniversary today!!! (Joy had just called and spoken to mom!! What a GIFT!! Joy is STILL BLESSING as always!!!) I am coming to a new understanding of how we may not all be able to be present with Joy, but we all do something, and together God meets every need and joins us in this journey!!! Some are called to keep the home fires burning, supply the meals, offer the cleaning expertise!! (no laughing Joy, you're not allowed!) Some remain on their knees. Some rub backs, give manicures, serve tea. Dear Father, may each heart that does what You call them to KNOW that nothing sacrificed is insignificant on Joy's behalf. Keep the prayers coming!!! Praise follows!!!!

Girlfriend’s ~ God’s gift that He has sprinkled around us here on earth!
I’m praying that she is released to go home before Mother’s Day!
