Ladies' Salad Supper 2014

Last week I hosted one of my most favorite events of the year - a ladies' salad supper for my sisters in Christ. It worked out this year that the Sojourners were in town working at Tipton Home, so they were able to attend.
These cute plates were at Walmart, and apparently everyone else liked them, too, because they're GONE!  Someone needs to get busy and make more Chevron party plates!! :)
 The colored jelly beans are Laffy Taffy flavored and War Head Sours, but they sure looked cute in the vases with candles.  I think some of the jelly beans disappeared that evening!
 My favorite part of the evening, right up there with the delicious salads, is listening to the ladies talk. This year I made up a question/topic sheet (listed below). I found most of these "ice breaker" questions online, but came up with a few on my own.
Each lady picked three questions to answer.  It was great hearing their stories and thoughts.  Some told funny stories. Some told sad stories. Some told memories of loved ones who have passed away.  Some talked about their faith as they shared their thoughts about God and Jesus.
It was great.  Year after year there are a few ladies that aren't with us. I think that's the one regret I have, is that we didn't record their stories.  We still laugh at one story that one sweet lady would tell every year. It never got old!  And her telling it was even better because we all loved to hear her laugh!
The bond of Christian sisters is a bond that is stronger than a blood bond.  It's what the Lord's church is all about....and I'm thankful that He planned it to be that way.  Our family - the church - just keeps growing - just like it should!

Pick Three

1. Name one thing you really like about yourself.

2. If you could ask God to change any problem in the world today, what would it be?

3. If you sat down next to Jesus on a bus, what would you talk about?

4. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

5. How were you proposed to?

6. If you had a time machine that would work only once, what point in the future or in history would you visit? 

7. What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?

8. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about God? 

9. What has been your most embarrassing moment?

10. If you could live one day over again, what day would it be and why?

YES, write those stories down and make an album with some of your pics in it! (that's what my Bunko group has done - it's not fancy but fun to have)
