The Thursday Ladies Luncheon ~

 Another Thursday Ladies Bible study and luncheon left me feeling so blessed. The Thursday Ladies get together the third Thursday of the month to share lunch, fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
 The table is set simply. After our lunch we need space on the table to open our Bibles and study notes. The flowers for this month's table setting are bedding plants . I wrapped white tissue paper around the pots, secured the paper with blue ribbon and voila! After the luncheon I planted the flowers in my flowerbeds. How simple is that ?


 Moms and Grandmas are encouraged to bring their children to the study too. Studying the Bible is a good family endeavor after all.

 This month lunch was generously provided by the ladies who attend. Delicious chicken salad stuffed croissants ( thanks Karen), green salad and big red strawberries, ( thanks Marlene & Marj).
"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; that the man ( or woman)may be adequate, equipped for every good work."   I Timothy 3:16,17

what a wonderful time spent with friends wish I could be there too! The snow has melted and I am also trying to get outdoor plants but it is to cold at night to plant flowers. We have to wait until the end of May.

Such a sweet time of fellowship you all enjoyed. Your tablescape is gorgeous.
The blue tablerunner you made for me is so pretty on our dining table in the new house.
God bless your day, Kathy. Love you.

Great fellowship, good food, brought together by a common belief in the God of the universe. The best kind of get together!

I can't think of a nicer way to spend lunch and an afternoon.

You made your dining room look so calm, and peaceful and absolutely beautiful - and having the plants to put in your garden afterwards will be a wonderful reminder of a perfect afternoon spent with friends and God

It has been a long time since I was part of such a group, but I well remember the wonderful feeling of fellowship. I remember the Bible Study group to which I belonged with I was a young mum - it added so much to my life. It's nice to see the young mums at your table.
