Ladies Bible Study

In our Ladies Bible Study we are studing The Fingerprints of God, which is designed to help us recognize and acknowledge God's personal touch in our lives. We were each asked to bring something handmade; the ladies brought a variety of items that meant something to them. One of our ladies brought tears to our eyes when she shared a plaster heart with the tiny footprints imprinted on it of the child she lost. She now has two beautiful children, but her heart still aches for the child that didn't live. I shared a cross-stitched picture that I made with the names of God listed.

This study brings out the fact that God spoke the everything into existence except us. God fashioned us with his "hands" and breath.

Mrs. Wilt and I were in charge of the food. Mrs. Wilt made some wonderful bread and brought a fruit salad. I made apple cinnamon muffins, and Maple-Berry salad with pound cake. This was so easy to make:
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries (thawed)

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries (thawed)

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

I placed all the ingredients in a plastic bag. I shook the bag to mix the ingredients well, then refrigerated overnight.

It also made it easy to transport to the church in the plastic bag, then transfered it to the serving bowl. I provided angel food bread to pour the berries on.

The ladies all loved my great Target buy. If you look at the muffins in the picture you'll see the silicone muffin liners, I purchased these last week at Target for $1.00 for 6 liners. They had colors designed for Easter and were at the $1 bins at the front of the store. They were very easy to peel off the muffins and were very pretty to look at.

Yes, I do believe we have "set the bar" quite high, Kim! LOL I really enjoyed my muffin and I am glad you posted the recipe for the compote. Yummy!

Looking forward to more Bible study Tuesdays where we can feast on His Word...

I am so jealous! I want to join your bible study....you always seem to have such a good time and really seem to spend your time on His Word. I belonged to a women's bible study for several years, but recently stopped going. There were some staff changes and it is no longer the same for me. I will live through yours for now :)
