This weekend holds many special memories. I travelled to Cedartown, Ga., to speak for the annual ladies day at the Cedartown Church of Christ. This was my first visit to this gracious Southern town, and what a blessing it was! I arrived Friday night and drove to the church building, were I met several ladies from the congregation who were hard at work making final preparations for the big event. Immediately I was welcomed into the warm embrace of this gracious group of Christian women. After corresponding with ladies day organizer Dot McCoy for nearly a year, meeting her face-to-face was like reconnecting with an old friend. I enjoyed dinner out with several ladies from church and thoroughly enjoyed visiting with everyone. It is such a blessing to visit a new place and discover that I have family waiting for me there! Our ladies day on the theme "Giving for All It's Worth" was such a blessing to me, and I am still feeling the glow from our special time together. Here are a few images from my journey to Cedartown.
The view from Highway 27 heading toward Cedartown was breathtaking.
This cheery spring wreath said welcome. The joyful sounds of laughter and conversation met me when I opened this door Friday afternoon.
The ladies provided a delicious lunch of southern favorites: barbecue, baked beans, coleslaw, celery, potato chips, pound cake and lemon pie.
Time for a book signing! The Cedartown Church generously gave copies of my book to the more than 100 ladies who attended the event.
