Another 'B' and Tea

From the moment the BB's met her, she was a blessing. She is also 'B'eautiful and very special. Her 'B's are bees and mine are turtles, but make no mistake about this. The B's are Family.

So without further ado, let me introduce my sister in Christ I met this weekend, Thelma Wells aka Mama T. She is something else! God connected the three B's in a special way. I will tell our story in another post. Check out Thelma's website and make plans to attend her free conference May 22-23 in Dallas if you can. She speaks out of the overflow of her relationship with Jesus Christ. She touched our hearts. (I love the symbol of the cross in our photo, even if it is part of the window frame. God is smiling on His B's!)

Betty, the artist, and I were at a Women In Worship Conference this weekend in Fairhope, AL. The conference started with a High Tea. We did not know fancy hats were appropriate for the tea party, so Betty made one for me out of two sheets of beautiful poetry. The 'He loves me daisy' added a nice touch to my paper hat. Now I had a song on my head and one in my heart! The other 'real hat' lady is Donna, the author of the poetry. She totally appreciated her art being displayed in a new way.
Women In Worship is a ministry of Alicia Williamson Garcia. She is not only an awesome speaker but an incredible worship leader as well. I did not get a photo with her but she prayed over me. A pastor once told me when I was around an anointed speaker or pastor to ask them to pray for God's call on my life. Alicia doesn't know me from Adam but as she was praying, I felt the Presence of the Holy Spirit. It was powerful. Tears were stinging my eyes. It was a moment to remember.

The BB's saw a road named 'Dry Branch' on the way to the conference. I keep thinking about that sign. Maybe the Lord was talking to me. The enemies' attacks had left me drained and discouraged. Know the feeling?

I needed that prayer!

I needed this time of refreshing.

If you have some symptoms of 'dry branch', a good soaking is what the Great Physician prescribes.

Draw from His well. It satisfies.

Worship! He inhabits the praises of His people!

Find some iron. Let it sharpen you. B a sharp instrument available for God to use.

  8. Oh I heard Mrs. Thelma speak at a couple Women of Faith conferences and she was just delightful. She seemed to always have a sweet smile on her dear face!

    I love the symbol of the cross in your photo too B! And the pictures of the B's are beautiful!

    I rejoice with you dear one over feeling the presence of the Holy Spirit during the prayer. I praise the Lord for your time of refreshing!

  9. Girl - awesome! I'm so glad you found refreshment after your pruning time. Those shearers can really hurt and drain you. Thank you for sharing what you pastor told you about asking for others to pray for God's calling on your life. That's incredible! I love it and will begin doing it myself. I think your dry branch is soaking up living water! love you.

  10. Looks like everyone had a wonderful time and all of your photos are beautiful. Love the CROSS in the window also. I love those unexpected moments.

    I appreciate your heart to share with us. Bless you.

  11. A pastor once told me when I was around an anointed speaker or pastor to ask them to pray for God's call on my life.

    This is sage advice, B. I always try to follow it myself!!

    Beautiful pictures, you look really refreshed! Blessings!!

  12. Looks like you had a great time and a wonderful time of refreshing!

    Dry branch... I'm working on that too. God bless!!
