Meekness and weakness?

Mention meekness and the first thing that comes to mind is probably a doormat. A doormat helplessly allows people to step on it and that's just want a meek person does...right? So, a meek person must be a weak person who isn't able to stand up for himself! But think about it this way, suppose I walked up to you and gave you a tight slap on the face. Would it be easier for you to shout at me or would it be easier to forgive me and remain silent? Meekness is hard! It requires great strength of character. Let no one be mistaken. Meakness is NOT weakness. It is power under control.

"Let nothing be done with strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves." -Philippians 2:3

In meeting news...

We celebrated the birthdays of four very sweet girls! (from left: Abi, Amber, Liz and Leah) Hope you all had or will have a great birthday! Thanks Danielle for baking the cake!

As this was our last meeting of the year, we had DIY ice-cream sundaes and also an activity in which we wrote encouraging notes to each other on paper taped to our backs. That was fun!

Danielle, obviously enjoying it all :D

"Trains" starting forming everywhere. One moment there might be nobody behind you, but the next minute there might be four or five people.
Quite scary:)

Thank you all for being sooo encouraging! I was encouraged when I read the little notes you all left on my back:) Till our next meeting...Bye!!
