This very morning a group of 20 seniors, mostly ladies, (which makes me wonder over and over again - where are all the men?) left for a weekend adventure to Prince Edward Island. http://www.tourismpei.com/
My goodness, these women are busy.
Many of them serve in our Cubbies program on Wednesday mornings. Many of them attend a Care Group together on Thursday afternoons. Our Hospitality Committee is comprised of many of them.
They take care of each other and they keep each other company. They enjoy one another. The have been known to play the odd card game together, to take in the odd play, and cook/share the odd meal together.
In the Contempory English version of the Bible, Titus 2:3 says this, "Tell the older women to behave as those who love the Lord should. They must not gossip about others or be slaves of wine. They must teach what is proper,..."
Phwefff! I'm so glad it says older women. Aren't you?
I mean, afterall - we're not...
Oh my, might there be a 'younger lady' in your life, watching all you do and listening to all you say?
MORE than one you say.
Thankfully, we have examples before us in the lives of these PEI bound, party animals. They work hard, serve hard and play hard. Their life is full. It seems they are very comfortable with the instruction Titus 2:3 gives them - they seem to be working it out.
Let's keep watching and listening.
