Last night our church hosted an Advent Service and Tea for women. The music was wonderful and the guest speakers did an outstanding job. The theme was Follow the Star. The first speaker talked about following God's plan for her to open a home for teen mothers and the second speaker started a business for developmentally disabled employees. They make gourmet popcorn. She had popcorn available and with every sale she is shipping popcorn to troops in Afghanistan.
After hearing such inspirational stories, I was wondering why I had spent even one minute fretting about my table setting and decorations. It is always so uplifting to hear how God works our lives in such a powerful way.
