Yesterday was a wonderful day for us Amazing Girls. We had a lovely party at my house, all 9 of us. Rachel (our pastor), Joy, Ivy, Gloria, Faith, Grace, Eva, Sylvia and myself. We had a bread party and cooked bread in different ways – we made toast, and two types of sandwiches. This we did as we caught up – it’d been a while since we’d all met, and what with the national exams!
We were all glad to be together, happy to realize that we were all doing well, and elated to be in God and in His favor. We discussed some girly things, which I will of course not write about here – but just so you know, we had tones of fun, laughter and bonding.
And yes, there was added emphasis to include many other girls in the parties. So we came up with a plan.
- We came up with a leadership team. I have two assistant leaders now, one for the bigger girls and one for the younger girls. We have different girls taking care of PR, topics, finances, hospitality, and records. The girls chose the roles for themselves, each according to their talents and personality – things we have been learning about over the years.
- All Girls’ Party: The next party, that will include all the girls, will be held next year during the ‘Long Mid Term”, when all the schools will be on a break during that election period.
- There will be a minimal fee charged, to facilitate for the snacks – I usually cater for that, but the girls suggested it, and really, it will be good, in order to make the parties more manageable.
- It was also decided that the leadership team would have trial parties before the actual parties, for planning purposes e.g. a pool party for the leadership team as we plan for the pool party for everyone else. Awesome!
I’m really excited about the turn that this is taking. God is good, and we all thank Him for His favor and grace upon us.
In closing, let me share a verse that has been a blessing to me over the past few months this year of restoration. May the Lord shower these blessing on you.
After you have suffered a little while, what will Jesus do for you? 1 Pet 5:10
He will personally do these things to you: restore, perfect, support, strengthen, confirm, establish, make you firm and steadfast, and place you on a firm foundation and settle you. You will be empowered, confirmed and established in Him to eternity.
