Stand in the Gap for Widows
Lemonade and Laughter Women’s Event
Thank you to Asbury United Methodist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for hosting this laughter-filled event for over 100 local widows. Tulsa Stand in the Gap Ministries’ “Stand in the Gap for Widows” helped to create the fabulous evening. This organization empowers the church to come around widows and support them in practical and emotional ways. For more information, check them out at www.standinthegap.org/widows.
Guest were greeted with beautiful lemon-themed decorations. You can tell from the following photos that no details were forgotten. From printed menus to ribbon napkin ties, the table decorations sent the message of care and love to all the participants. We were pampered with party favors and enjoyed being served by Asbury volunteers. Several gift drawings were given away to lucky winners as we savored not only the pie but also the wonderful conversation around our tables.
After dinner I had the honor of sharing from God’s Word. Ephesians 4:15 tells us, “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.” We talked about one way this growth comes is from taking one obedient step at a time. The Bible tells us that His word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths. As God illuminates our steps, we obey even when it seems like just a small step. He is always faithful to lead us on the path that He has for us.
