Digging Deep; Just Not In Soil

The sun peaks through the clouds.

It is still a little cool.
We women gather on the farmhouse lawn. 
Steam rises from mugs of hot coffee and tea. 
We dig deep into the Word. 
Wrestling with how to live as Christ.
Verse by verse we unpack the wisdom. 
There is openness and sharing. 
Women in community. 
I gaze around the group. 
One I mentored. Now married with a young child. 
Another visiting from out of state.
Friends I know well. 
Some, the friendship, just unfolding. 
Women. Seeking to live differently. 
A desire.  
Intentionally gathering. 
We pray. 
We desire a heart like Christ. 
And it's only in the pouring out and emptying that we can be filled. 

Colossians 2:6
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,  having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.

Over flow your life with gratitude. 
Let go of the bitterness and griping. 
Release the ties that bind. 
Rest in the grace so freely given. 
We're new creations. 
The old is gone. 
The new is come.
