Sharing an idea today to hold an Accessory Swap for a women’s ministry meeting.  We all have accessories we collect, were given as gifts, bought and thought we’d like and never wear.

I have lots of things like that myself.  Why not choose one to wrap up and bring to an Accessory Swap so someone else can take it off your hands?  They might really love it more than you do and might even actually use it.

Tell the ladies in your women’s group to bring in one wrapped gift of one of their scarves, hats, jewelry, purses, gloves, belts, or any ladies accessory they can think of. 

You should tell them all to make sure their items are in good condition.  If it’s junk–throw it out.  Don’t bring it to the swap.

Plan out a fun time of sharing and you’ll all be in for a good time. Exchange the gifts by assigning them numbers or exchange in anyway you wish.

Spiritual Application

God will save us and use us no matter what kind of shape we are in.
