Agenda for the Week of December 9th ---

Two days in Montgomery, Messiah Sing-a-Long, church women’s dinner [I have a table to decorate], Christmas Cards in the Mail, Sunday School Party, FBP Class [Scripture Calendar], and work appreciation luncheon.

Devotion by Nicole Hill from the Women’s Devotional Bible:

“Like most women today, I lead an active life. Often I feel like a one-woman juggling act. Sometimes, it gets out of control – or rather, I get out of control. Recently, I found myself waking up in the morning, dreading to face the new day and my seemingly endless chores and duties. My prayer time was suffering because I was so overwhelmed with pressures and responsibilities. Yet, I kept taking on more and more. …Seeking God’s guidance, I sat down and made a list of things I truly needed to accomplish that day. I didn’t worry about what I had failed to do yesterday, or what I hoped to for tomorrow. I just concentrated on today. As the day progressed [beginning with a renewed and refreshed prayer time], I found time … as I climbed into bed that night, I looked at my list and smiled. I was right on schedule. Lord, help me to remember …”

Zechariah 4: 6 [NIV],

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’

says the Lord Almighty.”
