These Boot Were Made For Walking.....


Last year in our women ministry we talked about and studied Kay Warren's book Dangerous Surrender - the premise of the book was to step out of your comfort zone and spread God's glory... His love... To reach the unreached... To spread His gospel... One of Kay's ministries is helping children in Africa who are suffering from AIDS.... This book will make you sit up and take notice... It will help put a fire in you that may have not been there.... I know my embers were not burning until I got a glimpse of what I believe God wants from me....

I am NOT an outgoing person... I am a homebody that prefers staying home curled up with a good book, a hot cup of tea, and my dog snoring on the ground next to me..... I DO NOT like talking in public.... I DO NOT like being noticed.... I am by nature a very lazy.... a very quiet person.... my close friends and family don't see that side of me - but it's there.... I have to really know someone before I expose myself.... before I let someone in..... I am very guarded....

So I am wondering why am I getting up in front of a bunch of women and talking... praying..... singing"these boots were made for walking" okay that's an another story.... But you see what I am saying.... this behavior is soooooo out of my comfort zone... I am a behind the scenes kind of gal... not the up close and personal kind...

A couple of weeks ago I hosted a ladies' bunco at my home.... We had 16 women laughing out loud.... sharing His love..... and of course we all enjoyed the Red Velvet Cake... yummm The theme of this bunco party was FEET.... Everyone bought a gift that had something to do with FEET.... Why? You may ask... Because it's our FEET that bring us to others... We are done just talking about serving Him.... We are walking.. running....to serve Him.... This Bunco theme was the kick off to our new Spring study... Crazy Love - We do Feet...

Check out these two books - I hope you are blessed as I was..... am...

I can see a bit of myself in you...like being quiet, staying home most of the time...Complete trust in the Lord is the only thing that makes us open up and I can see from those pics that you all had a wonderful time together, not just by yourself. May the Lord continue to mold us into His likeness.

Blessings to you.

Gee Kelly!
I would NEVER have guessed that you are an introvert...your writing sure gives you confidence and courage to share your heart!!! (and I'm GLAD of that for we love your writing!)
So nice that you had such a special evening with your friends!
I like that: "Our feet take us to where we go"...that's good food for thought there!
Thanks for the great post AND the Nancy Sinatra video!
