:: Women's Wednesday - Rejoice ::

:: A week before Christmas we hosted our Christmas Women's event @ CLA called "Rejoice". It was so much fun to plan and see our ideas and vision come to life right before our eyes. I think we may have bitten off more than we could chew {we're all about the details}, but almost everything went off without a hitch ::


:: We spent the whole day setting up the decor and making sure each seat was just right, we had a great group of women {& men} helping us make our vision a reality. We could not have done it without the help of everyone around us ::

:: Each woman received an ornament as a gift they said "rejoice", "peace" & "joy" ::


:: That chandelier hanging from the ceiling is what I was working on that day back in December when I was vacant from my blog. I was in my freezing cold garage trying to get it finished. The room pulled together amazingly well and showcased the speaker, the food, the music, the season and most of all the reason we celebrate ::

:: We had an amazing speaker Mrs. Helen Burns from VCC and we also had an amazing pianist, Lonnie Delisle - I had an amazing night and hope all of our guests did too. Helen spoke an amazing word about one moment in time and it was just perfect and so God ::
:: Here we are hosting the evening. Once we finished a long day of setting up we headed to Lisa's house to get ready. After an hour of changing, make-uping, pinning and spraying...off we went back to the church, through the snow in our 3" heels! ::
:: It was a delightful night full of love, laughter and rejoicing in the spirit ::

:: Thank you to all who made it out, you made our night! ::
