I just have to publicly applaud our God for birthing the vision of our Woven Women's Marketplace & Holiday Social, and for His relentless prompting of the heart to carry it to completion. The spirit of this event was Christian hospitality. Our guests (shoppers)were greeted with an invitation to partake of trays of appetizers, desserts, and a wide selection of drinks as our treat. Thanks to each of our exhibitors for donating items for the door prize drawing, which became take-home gifts for our guests.
As always, our Woven sisterhood brought a sense of unity and intimacy to an event that could have easily had the feel of commercialism and self-gain. Instead, the glory of the Lord was revealed in the displays, the interactions, and the connections being made. His Abba-heart must have been bursting! I know mine certainly was!

A special thanks to all the exhibitors for their precious hearts, to our shoppers for their enthusiasm, and to the Woven Marketplace Committee that made it happen, to our church for supporting us, to our pastor for his seal of approval.
To God be the glory, great things He has done!
