Why I LOVE Wednesdays

When I was a child I hated Wednesdays.  Or at least I hated the word Wednesday.  I mean really, who can spell it?  I still tend to write Wed. just to avoid seeing the red squiggly line shouting out to me that my spelling is still atrocious!   
But recently Wednesday has become one of my favorite days of the week.  Here are some things I love about Wednesdays:
  • My house is cleaner on Wednesday than any other day
  • I get to see, share with, study with, and pray with some of my sweet mama friends.
  • Lots of friends come to play with my boys!
  • There’s always plenty of food and COFFEE
  • My boys always take good naps on Wednesdays (they are exhausted from playing so hard)
  • I get sweet picture texts of one of my friend’s little boy asleep in his car seat
  • I always receive more than I give
  • I’m always encouraged more than I encourage
  • I don’t have to get the boys into or out of the car
  • Even when the kids are crying, yelling, making a mess, and super loud.  We laugh and no one gets upset or offended.  We are all moms and even through all the noise, interruptions, and trips to the potty we still manage to get into the word.  And learn.  And share.

What began not very long ago as an idea planted in my heart has grown to a small group of women learning and growing together.  It was a simple God inspired idea.  I wanted to read.  I wanted to grow.  I didn’t want to do it alone.  But God is using it to grow us all. 
What’s you’re God inspired idea?  When are you going to start?  Now’s the time.
Be used.

Companions as we are in this work with you, we beg you, please don’t squander one bit of this marvelous life God has given us.  God reminds us, I heard your call in the nick of time; The day you needed me, I was there to help.  Well, now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped.  Don’t put it off; don’t frustrate God’s work by showing up late, throwing a question mark over everything we’re doing.
2 Corinthians 6:1-3

So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit.  Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.
Galatians 6:9-10

  1. It sounds like a really great group. I would love to have something like, but until then I still have MOPS.
