PINK Tuesday

Every Tuesday morning, armed with my Bible and a bag of powerful, freshly ground coffee, I make my way to the church. Only, I don’t really think of it as going to ‘church’ – it’s more like going home.

I never dread Tuesday mornings. On the contrary, Tuesday is my favorite day of the week! As they begin to trickle in, I find myself celebrating each unique arrival – grandmas (with attitude), mothers (with the uncanny ability to go from side-splitting laughter to rivers of tears in 20 seconds flat), sisters (who struggle to ‘become’ in light of family baggage), daughters (in every stage of growing up, from blaming to embracing), and wives (with hang-ups, headaches and heartbreaks, even in the best of marriages).

Each woman who walks through that door brings with her a history, a heart-felt need, and a HOPE. As we fill our cups and settle in to our seats, we ‘arrive’ at that place where who we are is all we need to be.

Nothing more.

The thing that happens each Tuesday is that the stuff of life (good, bad and ugly) intersects with the Way, the Truth and the Life, resulting in moments of clarity where what is happening in our very raw, very real lives somehow makes sense in light of the Word. As Beth Moore says, it’s where our reality and our theology collide.

That’s what happens for me on Tuesdays. If only for a few, brief, glorious moments, my life makes sense. I get it.

And I’m no longer satisfied with keeping this phenomenon to myself! For this reason, Pink Shoes Ministries is thrilled to invite ALL of you to join me (and my soul sisters) for PINK Tuesday!

WHERE?    Here, at:  https://pinkshoesministries.wordpress.com

WHEN?      Every Tuesday

WHAT IS IT?     A forum for women to connect the dots between a reality made up of tough issues, difficult choices and painful circumstances with the theology of a living, loving, ACTIVE God who is present in the midst of our complex (and often messy) lives.

WHY DO IT?     Why be a part of PINK Tuesday? So that the God of HOPE can fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him (Romans 15:13) AND so that you can have a place to relate your stories and struggles with those of other real women who are seeking what you are seeking – a moment of clarity. Where life just makes sense.

After all, THIS is what Pink Shoes Ministries is all about! Being real (unique) expressions of God’s TRUTH in a world that has been duped by too many counterfeits too many times.

One thought on “PINK Tuesday

  1. Well I’ve been on the constuction zone for a long time. It’s an incredible ride. Lots of detours,and stop and go lights. What to do? There is a Spirit with a road map directing me. It always turns out in my favor eventually. So I’m staying on this road of construction and enjoying the ride. Life is a journey.
