An Invitation from the Speaker of the House!

As I walked into church on Sunday, I was met by my beloved friend, Rose, who greets everyone with the hugest smile ever!
As she handed me the bulletin, Rose noticed that I was to be the speaker at our annual Ladies Tea this year. She commented that I have been doing a lot of speaking lately! (Not a lot really - but more than she has!) Then she declared that I was the Speaker of the House! We roared with laughter!
If only she knew (and she will after Saturday night) the journey that God has taken me on to bring me to the point where I can stand in front of people, much less speak. When I was a child, my mother's motto was that children should be seen and not heard. She meant in front of company, of course, but I fit the bill perfectly. If being quiet was the standard of proper behavior, I was a model child. But, the truth is that I was very far from a model child, just a quiet one! I was painfully shy and riddled with fears. My fears morphed and grew over the years to monumentable proportions.
So this Saturday, please join me as I share about the journey that God has brought me - to face these fears and bring me freedom. It will be a wonderful evening with extraordinary special music, delicious food and raffles of beautiful baskets, gift certificates and other items.
