First Night of BSF

Today I feel absolutely filled with Joy, almost overflowing even. This evening is my first class at BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) and I am oh so ready.

I remember back many years ago when my mom and some of her friends did BSF for a couple of years. I think what I remember the most about it is how often my mom had her Bible and notebook open at night. This is a wonderful scene to have in my memory.

It's only natural with that background that I would eventually find my way to a BSF class. Interestingly enough when I did the "find a class" search on the site I found out that my church is one of the host sites! When I sent the email to the organizer I mentioned that I wasn't even aware that our church was a host and she said that they publish it in the Bible study list at the beginning of the year. I guess I've always missed it.

So while we were out running errands over the weekend I bought a new notebook and matching pen. I might not be needing actual back to school supplies, but a new notebook and pen makes me smile and I decided it would be a fun thing to take to Bible study each week.

I'll be picking up one of my girlfriends and we'll head out in a few hours. My cup truly overfloweth right now.

I'm sure you will enjoy your study immensely. I was in a study group for a couple of years. I treasure my Bible.

It is neat to see you so excited. I did a Beth Moore Bible Study this summer. Since my church does most of their studies during the day I miss out on them. Glad you found one.

I have done the entire BSF study. It is AWESOME!!! We had the best lady who was the main speaker and her "sermons" were incredible each week. You will LOVE this study!!! I wonder which one you are starting with? You are like my daughter. She loves to get new school supplies each school year. A new pen and notebook will make you happy for sure! Love & blessings from NC!

Yea! I'm happy that you are doing something that gets you excited about your Bible and your walk with the Lord. And it is precious that you have memories of your Mom with her Bible open. What an excellent memory to have. Hope your first session was a big blessing to you. HOpe you'll blog about it.
