"Weekly Chatter with CWOW" - From the leaders - Good Morning Ladies........

"This is the day the Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice in it."

Psalm 118:24 NKJ

~*~*~*~*~*~

Just a few words in the absence of Glennette....

Isn't our Lord Wonderful ! ? Our Nette is going to feel much better when the healing process restores the damage that was done to her eardrum.... Through God's remarkable technology he allowed the diagnosis to be made and through God's Infinite Wisdom has given her a physician to correct the problem...and through God Holy Power... will be healed. The 'Power of Prayer' has no limits ! Aren't we glad!!!!!

Thank You Lord for the 'gift' of prayer !

Our prayers and thoughts are with you Nette... I know that God has you in his arms and will not leave you! We are all praying for a speedy recovery......

Just a short message to let you know there is new material up at the message board on the current Bible Study.... Women Of Scripture We are studying Mary, the Mother of Jesus.

Be sure to refresh your page if you have been there before.

I have changes the format up some... We are not doing a daily study...rather, it is added to when I have the time. You ladies should like that ..*smile* , not as much email !

You may also print this from your computer so that it will be available to study as you have the time.

To do this you may have to be on the email list. I am not sure if it can be done from the message board.

The study has been in progress for a while, but you may come and go without missing too much ... you can always catch up or .. just skip the woman that you don't care much for ...... Scroll down the page about half way to see the first studies of Mary, the mother of Jesus.

At the very top is the current info on the study... Look it all over...

I feel like you will enjoy it..

If you would like to get the email version...you will have to get it through the mailing list at: http://www.topica.com

I'm not sure what you may be looking for, but this was in my email today and I look for and usually find miracles -- this one works for me! (=^__^=)

A PERFECT MISTAKE

My Mother's father worked as a carpenter. On this particular day, he was building some crates for the clothes his church was sending to orphanages in China. On his way home, he reached into his shirt pocket to find his glasses, but they were gone. When he mentally replayed his earlier actions, he realized what had happened; the glasses had slipped out of his pocket unnoticed and fallen into one of the crates, which he had nailed shut.

His brand new glasses were heading for China!

The Great Depression was at it's height and Grandpa had six children.

He had spent $20 for those glasses that very morning. He was upset by the thought of having to buy another pair. "It's not fair," he told God as he drove home in frustration. "I've been very faithful in giving of my time and money to your work, and now this."

Months later, the director of the orphanage was on furlough in the United States. He wanted to visit all the churches that supported him in China, so he came to speak one Sunday at my grandfather's small church in Chicago.

The missionary began by thanking the people for their faithfulness in supporting the orphanage.

"But most of all," he said, "I must thank you for the glasses you sent last year.

You see, the Communists had just swept through the orphanage, destroying everything, including my glasses. I was desperate. Even if I had the money, there was simply no way of replacing those glasses. Along with not being able to see well, I experienced headaches every day, so my coworkers and I were much in prayer about this. Then your crates arrived. When my staff removed the covers, they found a pair of glasses lying on top." The missionary paused long enough to let his words sink in. Then, still gripped with the wonder of it all, he continued, "Folks, when I tried on the glasses, it was as though they had been custom made just for me! I want to thank you for being a part of that."

The people listened, happy for the miraculous glasses. The missionary surely must have confused their church with another, they thought. There were no glasses on their list of items to be sent overseas. But sitting quietly in the back, with tears streaming down his face, an ordinary carpenter realized the Master Carpenter had used him in an extraordinary way.

There are times we want to blame God instead of thanking Him! Perhaps it is something we ought to try more often, "Thank you God for not allowing my car to start this morning." He may have been saving your life from a car accident. "Lord, thank you for letting me lose my glasses; I'm sure they'll be put to good use or there is a lesson to be learned."

I have to remember this in these times of trial with my own family. May GOD bless your week. Look for the perfect mistakes.

Subject: URGENT PRAYER REQUEST 

The gal who sits in front of my in the choir has a sister who is a single mom of three, an 8-year old girl, 2-year old boy, and 11-month old girl (I think that's correct). Anyway, early this morning, someone drove by her house and threw a bomb of some sort into the house which immediately caught the house on fire. The three children all died and the mom is in the hospital in very serious condition with 2nd and 3rd degree burns over

50% of her body. She is at this time unaware that all of her children are dead.

The family is taking this very hard and understandably so. There seems to be no rhyme nor reason for this incident and it is under investigation.

Thoughts at this moment are that it was a random incident with no "targeting" involved.

Please pray for this family. The funeral is at our church on Tuesday at

2:00pm. Unless the mother makes a miraculous recovery, she will not even be able to attend the funeral of her three children. As a mother myself, I cannot even fathom the weight of sorrow this family must feel.

Thanks for your prayers . . .

Blessings, Jan

Hi, Ladies!

It's wonderful to know that so many are getting involved with this wonderful newsletter.

I wanted to recommend a website that I designed earlier this year. Not because I designed it, but because I know you will be blessed by your visit there!

The site is "Ken's Resting Place" at http://KensRestingPlace.tripod.com

Ken Ferguson is a client and a dear friend. He is a Southern Gospel Songwriter with B.M.I. and has such talent! You can listen to midi or wav samples of his beautiful songs, which I know will bless you.

If you have lost a loved one, you will be tremendously blessed by the song "Only God Knows". Ken Ferguson donated a whole case of these CD's to help raise burial funds when my uncle died, not so long ago. The songs on this CD were such a blessing to my entire family as we worked through the shock of my uncle's unexpected death. They will each touch your hearts too... and that is my reason for wanting to recommend his site. Ken is also a Vietnam Veteran war hero, honored with 2 purple hearts, though he is too modest to allow that statement to be added to his site. :-) Let him know you stopped by and give him an honest opinion about his songs, and if you would... let him know that he is appreciated for sacrifices he made while serving our country. Thanks!

And if you like webrings, here is a new one that is becoming a wonderful ministry:

Lion of Judah's Voice Webring - http://www.geocities.com/~judahsvoice/ring.html

Thanks for your attention and may the Lord Bless You!

Your sis. in Christ, Cheri
