Marvelous Mondays

Mondays are always filled with joy as the women gather for a time of fellowship. Over the years, many have commented, "If I don't make it to Monday fellowship, I feel like I'm really missing something." One woman said to me: "I was a bit down when my kids went back to boarding school, but when I remembered that the next day was Monday, I was hopeful again."

These women have all experienced tremendous heartache and sorrow. All of them are either infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS. But in the midst of their difficult circumstances, they pray, sing, and dance unto the Lord.

May your next Monday be filled with the joy of the Lord no matter what your circumstances are!

I'm in a Tuesday fellowship, but I think I could benefit from the colorful dresses and drums. And movement. I'll have to suggest it. Hmmmm...Well, they'd laugh. But they know that I think that the definition of a white person is someone who doesn't move when she sings.
