Not the political one but the kind that little girls and older ladies enjoy. We attend a small/medium size church with somewhat limited resources. So planning an event can be a challenge.
Do you remember having a tea party with dolls?
I’m on a committee for women’s ministries. Last year we had a Valentine’s Party for the ladies of the church. Recently a Tea Party with a theme of Fill My Cup, Lord was presented.
Ladies were encouraged to wear hats that fall into the categories of Pretty, Creative, and Silly. Prizes were given for each category.
A group of ladies sang the old song “Fill My Cup, Lord”. We had three ladies to present short talks about the present circumstances of their lives. There was a young woman with younger children who discussed her busy life. In fact, she needed to leave early for her daughter’s basketball game.
Then a lady who has a daughter on the mission field talked about how that affects her family. And finally, a lady who represented a vintage cup talked about difficult circumstances in life and about the women who had influenced her and helped her at different times.
One of my harebrained ideas was to have each lady make a card. They would in turn write a note and deliver the card to someone that needed some attention. This was to be part of the idea that when God fills our lives with love, some of that should spill out to others.
Some of ideas came from Pinterest.
It’s fun and a privilege to be part of a group that has common interests.
