Women’s Ministries at Cold Springs has been putting on a Spring Tea long before I started attending. As the lady’s connection team planned for this year’s activities, the tea took its rightful place in May. Hostesses were recruited (some who have done this for years, and some venturing the task for the first time), tables were set up, beautiful place settings were created, and the lady’s team prepped. In the prepping, we decided to do things a little different – let’s create small group discussion around the tables!
The day arrived, Ginger Miner greeted and sat people, hostesses and team leaders served, the beautiful surroundings set the mood, and prayer reminded us of God’s Spirit with us. I’ve heard that you can tell when people are in community when there is laughter and tears. On Saturday, May 7th, ladies laughed, cried and lingered – confirming that God’s Spirit was experienced. I am so grateful for the women who prepped, the women who attended, and the women who shared of their lives, making this an event to remember. We celebrate when we share life.
The city of Placerville lost a faithful servant this month, Yvonne Link. Yvonne served in the community. She served in church. She served in Women’s Mission Fellowship. And she served anyone she met. What I remember most about Yvonne is her sharing her mother’s collection of quotes, scripture, and words of wisdom. Every time we spoke, she told me about something her mother used to say, or she would read something her mother had saved. She was a hostess for every tea up until the age of 97! We celebrate her life.
We celebrate the person of Christ present to make every person, every event, and every circumstance a celebration!
*Remember, Jesus loved you!
