Greetings and Happy New Year to all!
Where does time go? At the beginning of 2021 we were meeting virtually and as we closed the year, we have been able to meet in person. God is good. Covid is still a factor in our everyday dealings, but we still are able to power through each day. God is good. As we deal with all the changes in our lives, we remember that God is good. Always. Let’s celebrate Him when we meet this month on January 11 at 10am in the Parlor. We welcome any who would like to join us. There will also be a virtual link emailed out before the meeting if you are unable to meet in person.
Continued prayers are asked for the following: Ellen Garrison, Bill and Joanne Hollingsworth, Nicole Martin, Barbara Means, Karen Gerlach, Julia Hamner and Cecilia and Grace, friends of Karen Gerlach.
At our December meeting, we had a 12 people in attendance, a record for 2021! Darlene Bowman led the installation of our officers for 2022. This includes Meredith Akkerman-President, Karen Luther-Vice President, Nicole Martin-Secretary, and Erika Latham-Treasurer. Congratulation’s ladies! Erika reported on our service outreach. With help from the congregation, DWM donated linens, pillows, blankets, and towels to the women at Doors of Hope, gifts cards, gift bags and various items to Possibility Place for their Christmas shop, items needed for our Angel family and $100 to Retrieving Independence. Thanks to everyone who donated items and time.
We concluded our meeting with an ornament swap and lunch. Again, I would like to invite any who would like to share in some devotion and fellowship to please join us in January. I hope you will come.
I’ve been considering the word hope and all it means to us. Hope is a good word. Short but strong. When you look in the bible, the work hope is spread throughout. If you have a minute, follow this link https://dailyverses.net/hope and remember His words:
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Blessings to all,
Meredith Akkerman, DWM President 2022
