As we start Lent, I wanted to provide an update on Daughter’s of the King.
February saw us exploring friendship, the different types of relationships and what it means to be a true friend. Our ladies have learnt friendships come in different forms and each one special and unique.
We also learnt how to find refuge in God’s words expecially during those moments when we feel alone, afraid or uncertain. Each daughter of the King had to memorize a Bible verse that speaks to her heart.
We were reminded to guard our hearts particularly from music with lyrics that tear us down instead of lifting us up. “What we listen to will control what we think” says Sheri Rose in the chapter 28 of the “His Princess Girl Talk with God” Devotional that we have been exploring the past number of months. We were challenged to list our favorite songs and write down the lyrics and if we found it to be questionable to make a commitment to stop listening to it. The girls are considering listening to KLOVE radio station for all of Lent. Go to www.klove.com to find out what channel KLOVE is in your area.
We had a great time playing musical chairs, dancing to “In My Eyes” by The Afters.
On the service part, our ladies helped with photo session sign ups for the Church directory.
We ended the month of February with a movie on the life of St. Maria Goretti.
As we begin this season of Lent, we pray that each one of us will be drawn into greater intimacy with Christ by participating in the Sacraments of the Chuch even more deeply.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
