The REST of Your Story.

Don’t forget to send your best service idea to byhcontest@gmail.com. Send it by midnight on December 10th.  You could win this amazingly expensive bracelet (not, really…but cute and handmade by me)! We will all win if we take some ideas and implement them in our routines for living (Details here: https://thecolleyhouse.org/this-years-holiday-contest),

Next, be sure to watch the podcast tonight at 7 CST here:  https://livestream.com/whcoc/for-women. Spoiler alert: If Jesus washing feet doesn’t get to your heart, you may not be reachable. 

Next, here’s a little Christmas bundle in the store. If you buy the new Digger’s bracelet AND the Digger’s tea towel, you pay just $15.00 plus $3.50 shipping for both. It’s two great gifts in one!  Regular price is $18.00 plus shipping.  Order here:  https://thecolleyhouse.org/store#!/Digging-Deep-Holiday-Special-Bracelet-Tea-Towel-Combo/p/420561757/category=20688312

Finally, I’m realizing this year that there are many sisters who are hurting through this holiday season. Covid has claimed. Politics has pained. Budgets are bursted and, worst of all, sin has separated. Hope, joy, love, peace, and cheer–all the things we see on the greeting cards this time of year–are found in Jesus Christ. Love Him, praise Him, serve Him through the rest of 2021 and throughout the rest of your life. And one day, through His advocacy, you will have the REST of your life. Rest from trouble, rest from sin’s consequences, rest from persecution, rest from sickness and death. REST. He said “Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” 

Stick it out in faithfulness through the TESTING ground and you can be wrapped in peace in the RESTING ground. Heaven will surely be worth it all!  

And, not as importantly, but extremely therapeutically,  try to find the holiday sparkle in a child’s eye every remaining day of 2021. That sparkle will keep you pressing forward! Children are the best people on the planet today! Happy Holidays!

This Year’s Holiday Contest!

As December begins this year, we are finishing up a Digging Deep study about that amazing service project completed by our Lord in the upper room at the Passover feast. This year’s holiday contest is centered on service. Send us your best service idea for the holiday season. I’ve heard about several already from Diggers, but this contest is open to all women who’d like to enter.

I don’t want to start describing ideas because I don’t want to pre-empt someone’s best idea, but I do want to say the project can be costly or without cost. It can be simple and quick or long and labor-intensive. It can be performed to help a child or a widow or a family or a congregation. The creativity of women who read this blog always amazes me.

So send your best service idea to byhcontest@gmail.com. Send it by midnight on December 10th. Three winners will receive these cute little silver-tone bracelets that I’m making this year for fun gift-giving. They have a tiny little shovel charm and a little bar charm  that says  “BLESSED”.  I’ll also send along one of the Digging Deep flour-sack style tea towels from our store.

Let’s help each other serve!

You bought them up!…Only a few smalls left.

Here are the ladies (list below) who will be getting shirts. We are trying to mail these out today. Some of your orders are just partial orders. Just had to do the best I could on these. Let me know quickly if you do NOT want what’s listed below. Please just PayPal colley@westhuntsville.org for the shirts and shipping. Refer to the previous blog post for details. If your name is not listed below, your request cam in later your size was sold out. Let me know if anyone else needs a size small by emailing byhcontest@gmail.com. I can still fill that order, but that’s all! Thanks!

You are the best! I’m trying to get our little holiday contest together, too. I have a little prize I’m making for the winners of that. So watch for details. I hope your weekend is great. Keep the Colley House in your prayers. We love our family in Him!

On a much more sober note (than t-shirts),  I love what Jesus and the Spirit said to the church in Sardis. I cling to this in 2021. Let’s be overcomers together. May all the names on this page and all the diggers’ names be confessed. I want to be confessed. Above all, I want to be confessed and get that white clothing! White has never been my color, but it is GOING TO BE!

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”
