Today was our monthly GRITS Fellowship (that’s “Girls Raised in the South” for you other folk!). We get together to “sit a spell” and pray for our beloved missionaries in parts further South than where we were raised – particularly Southern China and South Africa. The Lord has given us a heart for missionaries and inspired us by the likes of Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong.
Among the laughing and loud talkin’ (as my husband reminds me, Southern Women have one volume…loud!), we enjoy the quirky Southern-isms that we miss so dearly living here on the left-coast. It was refreshing to hear a sister in the Lord use the sayin’ “umpteen” and we knew just what she meant!
