Christmas morning started our night with many of our ladies decked out in their favorite and warmest pajamas and robes. We had a variety of breakfast casseroles, biscuits, muffins, fruit, and on and on with more delicious food to choose from. All the tables were full of ladies with smiles on their faces enjoying every minute of our last meeting for 2016.
Beth Hall gave us a list of our 2016 missions. We should feel so blessed, ladies, with the missions we have served this year. We donated over $2700.00 to help support these causes. In July, many of us gave our time to hand out food boxes for Second Harvest. In October, we filled our Gray UMC Love Pantry with cans and boxes of food that we donated. So, our love doesn’t just show one night a month, it continues throughout the month until we meet again. Gray Girls Grow Godly has shown our “Unconditional Love” throughout the years since our very first meeting. Emilee Little was our speaker last night and she told us 3 stories about unconditional love and we are serving others each month with no thought of what we will receive in return. 4G’s always shows “Unconditional Love”.
Well, Sweet Ladies of 4G’s, I am signing off as the email communicator for 4G’s. Our first meeting was January 11, 2012 and after 5 years, I think it is time for you to have some new thoughts, ideas and inspirations of someone else in your monthly emails. I can’t tell you the blessing God has given me when I sit down each month to write about our meetings. The words that flowed onto the page were from Him. When I struggled with what to say He stepped in to direct me. I want to thank you for all the sweet return emails and personal comments that you have supported me with during these months.
You are being given another blessing beginning in January 2017. Amber Jeffers has graciously said she would like to send you the monthly emails and I know she is a wonderful lady for you to hear from.
I hope you will be at our first meeting of our sixth year on January 10, 2017. Amber will send you a reminder and all the details.
May God Bless You and Keep You and Your Families as You Have A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Love to all,
But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1: 20-21
