Good Morning Brenda,
I kind of had to smile at the quote from Lysa….it’s hard to think that I’m “in ministry” right where I am plopped on my sofa for 6 weeks, but I have my laptop, so I guess I can minister even from here 🙂 We will have to talk about possibly hosting an (in)RL meet up at my house in October – if you’d be my tech savvy assistant lol. It would be fun to get some writers and non-writers alike together. Let’s talk more. Got a good report from the doctor and my foot is healing nicely. Still two more weeks non-weight bearing for the bones to fuse and then I can begin transitioning to weight bearing. Encouraged that I see the light at the end of the tunnel!! I always feel so welcome here at your site!! Hope you’ve gotten in some summer writing?!

Well, I don’t know about tech-saavy, but I’m happy to link arms to host (in)RL this October. We’ll have to chat about it soon to get basic plans set up so we can start inviting. (So folks can have time to get it on the calendar and save the date!) — Yay for the good dr. report! Praise God your foot is healing well. PTL for light at the end of the tunnel! ((xoxo))
I often don’t think of my words as ministry. But I do know God gives them to me, so I guess they are! Thanks for your encouragement as always!

It’s easy to discount our own ministries, isn’t it? Easy to forget that each step of quiet obedience is ministry. Your words minister, my friend. Thank you. 🙂 ((hug))

My goodness, Brenda! That Lisa TerKeurst quote reached right off my screen and grabbed me around the heart this morning! Thanks for sharing it so beautifully.

Likewise, Lisa. Thank you! 🙂

Yay! We don’t need a job description or to sit on some board or committee to serve God and others …
I love His invitation to simply walk through the doors He’s opening right and left.

Invitation…yes. Love that. Simply walk at His invitation. Amen, friend. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Brenda – It is so good to remember we are in ministry wherever we are. I have had periods of ministry where hours, day, months and years were spent in my home ministering to my family. It was difficult as I sat by and watched friends receive accolades for their service and I received none. God then reminded me we don’t do it for the applaud but him.
For a woman who never likes to be home, I learned how to do it. This, in turn, helped me when I heard God’s calling to write.
Hope you are having a wonderful week,
