A Proverbs 31 Baby Shower

Mrs. Hoffman "openeth her mouth with wisdom" just like the Proverbs 31 woman she was sharing about.

The young women...

...being taught by the older woman. That's right: a biblical model for baby showers!

I'm pleased to announce that the prophecy on the baby sleeper has been fulfilled. As of last Saturday, Jon and Monique are the humble parents (I'd be the last person to accuse them of pride :) of a little girl.

I had the honor of being Monique's "secretary" for the evening.

Who gave the beautiful quilt? I say it must have been someone who seeketh thread and fabric and worketh willingly with her hands. ;-)

Aunt Becky seems to know just where she's needed.

There were many irresistible things on the menu that night, but, trust me, "the bread of idleness" was not among them.

Mrs. Clayton - busy knitting - is proof.

Ah, posing - such a rarity on this blog.

Out in the shadows, girls gather.

Girls scatter.

And that, in a nutshell, is the story of the evening. Women gathered and, eventually, they all scattered. But, in between, they fellowshipped together, blessed one another, and were a testimony to what God will do for those who trust in him. Much thanks to you, Karen and Abigail, for your skillful organization of the event.

Hoping you'll have a blessed two weeks,
