Happy Spring!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Ladies!

Happy Spring!!  Ok...I know it felt more like Spring last Friday, but the daffoldils, crocus and forsythia are blooming!!  I don't know about you, but the combination of the "Sisters in Faith" retreat this weekend and the flowers blooming gave me a pretty decent Monday morning attitude!

I hope this week began well for you too.  I plan  to see all of you Tuesday night for "Forget the What-Might-Have-Beens" ( Chapter 6 ).  

This plays off something Jan Silvious said to us on Saturday...."What might have been doesn't exist so don't even go there!"  I am sure we will have an excellent discussion!

Please continue to pray for Marjorie and Tammy & Doug.  

When the "Sisters in Faith" retreat is over each year, Ivy takes all of the prayer request cards left by the women who attended, types them up and sends them to the team so we can all pray for each woman before the day is over.  It is so touching ( an understatement)  to read these requests and catch a view into the burdens many women are walking around with.  Many of them are very heavy.  

After praying Saturday night, I thought about all of you.  It is Donna's and my deepest prayer that you feel safe in our circle at Manorwood.   It is important to us that you feel you can come and be your true self--fully accepted and valued as you are.

Love to all~


  1. Thank you for the Spring Time message. Thursday is the big day for me. I ask all to pray that the decision regarding my future employment with the USPS is positive. If i am impacted I will have the opportunity to apply within but due to the reduction in force effort, there will no be enough jobs for all who apply. First, pray that I am not impacted, as well as,that God's WILL BE DONE! Thank you. Ivy

  2. Praying for you Ivy. Love,
