Save the Drama for Your Mama


drama masksThis year our theme for Ladies TEA has been “Save the Drama for Your Mama.” It is a biblical study of ordinary women who have done extraordinary things. There is no book for it, at least not that I know of, I just made up the lessons each month. I hope the church ladies have enjoyed studying these women as much as I have.

I am not a very compassionate person when it comes to whiny women. (Whiny men fall under the category of whiny women.)  I get tired of hearing excuse after excuse: “I’m just so busy.” “I can’t do that, it will stress me out.” “What will people say?”  “You don’t know what I’ve been through.” “I can’t be on time, I have children.” As a friend of mine says, “Put on your big girl panties and get over it.” So it got me to thinking about women of the Bible. Just about any drama you can think of, these women cover it. Over the next week, I’ll be posting a synopsis of the first few lessons. The truth is, God is able to do extraordinary things with us if we just follow Him.

Our church’s ladies ministry

I am a theme person. Everything I do seems to have some sort of theme attached. I think it keeps me organized. So why would our ladies ministry be any different? Our church’s ladies ministry is called TEA. It stands for Teaching, Exhorting, and Admonishing and our theme verse is Hebrews 10:24-25, “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” We meet once a month September-May, have a ladies luncheon in the spring and we take a Mystery Trip in the fall. This year I’d like to add a few extras, I just need to get the kinks ironed out.
