DIVAS of Coquitlam Presbyterian Church – 2 April 2014

Location: Coquitlam Presbyterian Church – Women’s Group
Date: Wednesday, 2 April, 2014 (11:00 am – 1.30 pm)

A sea of shimmering silver shone up at me as I presented to the Coquitlam Presbyterian Women’s group yesterday. The oldest lady there was 93 years old and still going strong!
“Silver hair is a beautiful crown found in a righteous life” (Proverbs 16:31). These beautiful women who sat before me all wore crowns of glory. They are my heroes!

They call themselves The DIVAS, which stands for ‘Divinely Inspired Victorious And Serving’ women. So fitting! One dear lady knits socks for homeless feet on the Downtown Eastside, every stitch a stitch of love.

I’m inspired by their tenacity, wisdom and willingness to serve even during their later years, when many people choose to retire. God has a plan and purpose for us no matter how old or weak we become. He uses everyone and everything for His glory! Our job is to be willing and obedient to step into what He calls us to do – and that happens at any age.

So I’m encouraged as I move into my golden or should I say ‘silver’ years. God’s not done with me yet! How about you?
