A sense of humor is absolutely necessary with this job. There are just too many funny, funny situations that being in leadership puts us in. Now is the time to pick one of your favorites and share it with the rest of us.
I’ll start us off:
My husband was to give a graveside message and I was the soloist for the service. The location was an hour’s drive away. I dressed quickly, couldn’t decide which shoes looked best with my outfit, and off we went to the cemetery.
When I stepped onto the grass and began walking toward the group of mourners I noticed something was not quite right with my steps. I looked down at my feet. Gasp! Two different shoes! No turning back! An entire four hours of helping to conduct a graveside service and then sitting around visiting at the luncheon reception following.
You know, it’s hard standing on one foot, on uneven ground and quite difficult to give encouragement through song when you’re terrified someone might be looking at your feet! Sitting in a folding chair and tucking one foot back and way under can lead to an even more embarrassing fall forward!
I opted for my old default. Just go with it. Enjoy the humor of the situation and make ‘em laugh!

Don’t forget, here’s how this works…
Each month a topic will be presented. I will give an introduction and an invitation to all of you who would like to respond to the topic. Ask questions. Tell your story. A little bit of crying and bellyaching is allowed, however, there will be limitations. Our goal is to find each other through our discussion of our shared experiences and to encourage each other. God will be with us!

- Be sure to use only your initials in the section where it asks for first and last name, or give a pseudo-name to keep your identity private.
- Please, don’t give actual names of people or places as you tell your story. Protect. Protect. Protect.
It may be necessary for some editing of your submission to present a concise version. I will work (and pray) through your comment/response and then post both what you contributed and my own comment or response, as well as interaction from “the Sisterhood” I have received concerning it. Nearing the end of each month, I will inform you of the next month’s topic, to give the opportunity for you to prepare.
