Good Morning Friends! I’m so excited for today! I’ve been waiting and preparing for your return and I am thrilled with all of the possibilities that this next month has in store for us!
First, I’ll tell you about the name of our group, and then I’d like to introduce you to some lovely children of God.
The book of Matthew is filled from cover to cover with the enchanting true story of Jesus and His work for our salvation. We have been walking through it on Sunday mornings in Bible study and are currently right in the midst of chapter 7. It’s one of my new favorite sections of scripture. Really, a treasure trove. But if you continue reading, eventually you’ll come upon chapter 18 and these words, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
Now, I would imagine as women from all across the United States and 3 different countries, we will probably never have the opportunity to sit and chat together in the same room. I know though that God is a God who transcends space and time and so even if we only ever gather in one another’s blogging homes, God is bound to be there with us.
Welcome to this first month of Where Two or Three are Gathered!
As you take time each day, (or most days) to earnestly read, visit with, and perhaps even pray for one another, remember if you would please, this one rule:
Speak words of kindness and compassion, words of encouragement and ones that inspire growth, words of truth only spoken in love. Basically, stick to words that you wouldn’t hesitate to say right to your most beloved grandmother’s face.
You should see the women joining you today! Perhaps you have already strolled through the comments of the idea post and taken a peek. But, oh these women! I have just dipped a toe into the depths of all they have to offer and I cannot wait to dive in completely!
You’ll find within this group, women who…
- are gifted in crafting and cooking.
- are teachers, pastor’s wives, farmers, writers, missionaries, students, grandmothers, mothers, wives, all in service to God.
- share their mistakes and their triumphs, their humorous tales and their heartfelt losses, their faith and those times when they struggle in faith.
- share their own stories and provide a platform for others to do the same.
- are poetic.
- love coffee and chocolate.
- were hurt and are now healed.
- know that their Redeemer lives.
In this group you’ll find women of faith. My heart swells just thinking about it!
You’ll find a link to each member’s site below. I’ve also set up a Pinterest page for us. If that makes it easier to find each of the ladies in the group, feel free to repin till your heart’s content. If you would just check in with me below in a comment to let me know you found your way back here today, that would be great. Also, would you tell me whether or not you are on Facebook. If everyone has an account, I’ll set up a page for us there as well. If not, no need to worry. The links will all be here for us all month long.
Remember, you don’t have to follow, share, tweet, pin…etc. unless you really do want to. But please do visit and get to know one another!
Also, as of this morning, there were still two spots available. If you know someone who missed out on signing up, they can still do that today! If you are new to this site and wondering what in the world I’m talking about, slip over to the idea post before signing up!
And now, may I introduce you to some amazing new friends…
