You see it's an event for women who really need to hear that they are beautiful, that they have a reason for being, and have a worthwhile future.
Every month at my Church, they run a morning for women who are living in women's refuges', have been victims of domestic violence or just doing it tough. These women come and get pampered and shown love in a really practical way with food parcels, clothing and any other need they may have.
They can book in for massages, pedicures, manicures, and haircuts, all performed by women in the Church. They call it 'Royal Treatment' and they even enjoy a lovely morning tea and a listening ear while they wait!
I knew their end of year Christmas party was approaching again and so I volunteered my time and any help I could give to help make it a special event for these women. There are over one hundred women who come to this event, so it's big! It has been so fulfilling to do something outside myself. I'm always reminded to use these gifts that I have to serve and show love to others. That's what it's all about right? That's what counts. So I'm happy to have lavender all around me this week as I join a team of women who are helping to create a Christmas party to remember for some really special women!
It's the big set up day tomorrow so I don't know if I'll be able to post till after it's all over, but, I can't wait to share this one with you all!
