Last week I had a group of ladies over for a small lunch. Right after lunch, but in the middle of our fellowship time, one of the ladies got an urgent phone call from the young 22 year old mother she has taken in and had to leave. We all felt very sad for this DearFriend because that was her time to cast her burdens on us so that we could help her carry them in prayer and she wasn't able to do that.
Well, I felt such a burden for her and all of us moms who just need a time and place for escape sometimes that I decided to open up my home once a week for 2 hours for 6 of us ladies to just gather and chat over a cup of coffee. My hope in this is that we are able to encourage one another in the Lord and ultimately pray for one another to help carry one another's burdens.
Since I don't know how the Lord will lead this endeavor, I have decided to take it month by month. My first Coffee Break will be on February 1st.
