Widows' Tea

I wish you could have joined me and these dear ladies (and Pam who took the picture so she didn't have to be in it!) on Friday at my house. We had such a good time.

This group is growing out of a Bible study I do on Ruth using my book "Postcards from the Widows' Path." After we did it last year at my church the ladies continued to meet about once a month for lunch. At the tea party on Friday they welcomed the women who were from this year's Bible study plus two new guests.  

It's so important to meet other widows face to face. To tell your story to people who "get it," and to discover you're not as alone as you thought you were. I have so many ideas, hopes and dreams for this group and I look forward to what the Lord will bring us through together this year. I know that many of you are also starting up a widows group. Wouldn't it be great to post about our groups, ideas we can use at meetings and ways to reach out to more? I'd love to hear your ideas and see your pictures. Feel free to email me at WCplace@gmail.com

Next month the widows are meeting for supper at a BBQ restaurant. I hope to have them back to my place again, maybe for a picnic carry-in where everyone will bring something. For this month's tea party Pam brought desserts (she makes the best!), and I provided quiches, fruit salad and scones.

What are your favorite menus or ideas for a widows luncheon or tea party get together? Let's hear about them!
