Wow, I loved Lori's devotional today about Martha. She did an excellent job.

I'd have to say that the Woman of the Bible that I'd like to sit and have coffee with (other than Martha) would be Ruth. I love her devotion and loyalty.

Happy Monday! Your "Quiet Time" Giveaway is marvelous. What a basket full of renewing and refreshing goodies. I am a subscriber to your daily email. Ruth is the woman that I would enjoy spending time with! She is the only woman that has a book of the Bible to her credit! Her name means "friend" and her loyalty to Namomi is powerful. Some scholars suggest that the book of Ruth has a woman author. One reason is that it is written about two women's life journey in a male dominated society and appears to have a female view point. I like the way both Naomi and Ruth show ingenuity and assertiveness! Thanks, Cindi

Wow...hard to choose just one woman from the Bible to have coffee with. But if I must choose only one, it would have to be the mother of the Only One. Precious Mary. I would ask her about Jesus as a child and I would ask her about the moment she realized who He really was.

For Fun, I'd like to have coffee with Eve.
The first woman to give birth ... make dinner...change a diaper ( or animal skins..?)
For seriousness, Mary - Jesus's Mama

BTW... I also signed up to get devotions in my email.
I'm excited about this. I've got 3 little girls and it's challenging to get a moment for devotional time.

Hello. I LOVE this giveaway. It would be like Christmas lol. Anyway I signed up for the newsletter, posted on my blog and the woman I would most like to sit down for coffee would have to be Mary mother of Jesus. I can't imagine the feelings this woman went through from the miraculous conception to the death of her son and her Saviour on the cross. Talk about having something to share. I would just sit and soak it all in.
Blessings to everyone.

What an awesome giveaway! Ya'll are so sweet to do things like this. I've already signed up for the devotions, which is how I found out about the giveaway - Annie's devotion was wonderful today, wasn't it?

Which woman of the Bible would I sit down and have coffee with? Priscilla. She and her husband worked with Paul. I'd love to know how it was having so many different groups into their home to minister to, what travel was like, really like, back then, did they have weeks to prepare or did they just have to pick up and go when the Holy Spirit said it was time? I'd love to hear what it was like to be around such a strong man of faith like Paul, how did she and her husband Aquila feel when they left Italy under order of Claudius...I could go on, but I'll stop here....

Hey Ladies,

What an awesome give-a-way!!

Now, let's see, there are so many women I'd love to sit and have coffee (or tea) with!

I guess I'd say Mary. I'd ask her how to quiet myself down and spend time lingering in His presence.

I'd tell Martha I love her and ask her to pray for me!!

There are so many women in the bible who I'd love to sit and learn from face to face! Since I was a child though, there has been one who has kept my attention, Ruth.

I'd love to hear all about her first interaction with Boaz!!! She served so lovingly and it seems she did not complain. Her simple trust in the LORD was and still is a powerful testimony. I picture her being beautiful from within and a bit tan on the outside form all that work she did! Her cry in desperation to Naomi seems to me to be more of a cry out to the LORD to not leave her there, he was listening as he always is. Through her passionate example of devotion, service and trust I am spurred further on into my walk with the LORD, especially when he leads me into unfamiliar territory.

Well, the woman I would like to spend some time with would be the virgin Mary. I am not Catholic, but I do think she is so interesting. I would ask her what it was like to give birth to the Son of God, was it hard to follow your son instead of wanting him to follow you, and so much more.

I did link to the contest on my blog. I'd love any comments from other Christian women there. This basket is wonderful, isn't it? :)

3. If I were to sit down with a woman from the Bible: I can't pick just one. I would want to sit down with Mary and Martha. I find myself having characteristics of both Mary and Martha, and because these two women were privy to some of the first-hand teachings of Jesus, and some of his greatest lessons for us as women on "busyness", I'd like to sit down with them and find out what they learned from Him, and also from each other.

Hmm, let's see. It's hard to pick just one woman from the Bible for coffee and conversation. But since you said one, I'll go with Delilah. I'd want to sit down and witness to her. Maybe she'd get saved (smile). But knowing me, I'd probably e-mail all the various women of the Bible and try to organize a women's ministry or plan a prayer breakfast or something. LOL!!!

If I could sit with any woman in the Bible and have a Dr. Pepper, it would have to be two (at least): Hannah because have something in common - we both prayed for a son and God answered our prayers and, Mary, Jesus' mother. Having a son myself, it would be great to hear her viewpoint on raising a son! I can't imagine the heartache that she experienced and yet I know that she would not have traded places with anyone!

I can't pick just one! I want to talk with them all; I want to know details....did they hate cooking like me? did they have a problem remembering names when they got older, like me? did they love handwork and children and yellow flowers, like me? I have so many questions....
I signed up for the daily devotions - I'm so glad I found you. Blessings, marlene

1. I am already enjoying the daily devotionals sent to my email. Thanks

3. Which lady in the Bible would I like to sit with? This is a hard one, there are so many. One of the ladies I would like to sit with would be Mary the Mother of Jesus. I would like to see Jesus through her eyes. I have two sons of my own and often times I've wondered at the entricasies of their realtionship as well as her discipline methods. :D

If I could sit down with any woman from the Bible it would be Ruth. I just read the Book of Ruth in the Bible and I couldn't believe how devoted and obedient she was. I don't think I would be able to do the same without grumbling.

Hi
I have just signed up for your devotions and will post a link to this on my blog page.
And if I could sit down with any woman from the bible it would be Mary (Jesus's mum) there must have been someting really special about her that she was chosen to raise the son of God.

I would like to meet Hosea's wife. I've read commentaries that said she didn't really exist and it was just a spiritual parable. I'd like to know if she was real (which I tend to believe she was!!) and talk to her to find out what she was thinking through it all.

I just signed up for the devotions as well :-)

You guys are doing an awesome job!!
God bless,
Sallie

Hi!
If I could, I would like to sit and talk with Mary the mother of Jesus. I would LOVE to know her thoughts and feelings. I would love to look into thee eyes of the woman who kissed the face of God. I would ask her what it was like to humbly carry the king of the Universe in her womb. How she managed to "correct" the young Jesus as a toddler.... and at what point did she "know" that he would have to die to save us from our sins. My favorite quote of hers was when she replied, "My soul doth magnify the Lord." Just imagine how her soul really did ... magnify the Lord.

I would most like to talk with Mary Magdalene. Our Lord stepped in while she was being stoned and saved her. He saw something in her, like he does all us sinners that was worth redeeming, even when must have felt she wasn't worth that sort of love. I know I struggle with feeling worthy of that sort of love and with sin (not Mary's sort, but sin none the less). I would love to know how she turned her life around and never looked back. I wonder what she did when people were cruel to her and called her names even though she had changed her heart. I want to ask her what it was like to minister to Jesus on his last day and to be so close to him in discipleship. So many things I would love to ask her!

Since I am so late in entering this contest I will only enter twice. :0) I am posting here and I am getting on your email list.

If I could have coffee with any woman in the Bible who would it be?? There are so many great women to choose from, but since I am studying the book of Isaiah, I will say his wife. I don't know her name, but he referredf to her as "the prophetess". I bet she could share a lot of insight!! ;0)

Hello Ladies,
I would like to most chat with Naomi. Ruth loved her so much and she was full of wonderful advice for her. I'm sure she must have shared alot of knowledge, experience and love with her and I would like to just sit and talk to her.

Hello. This giveaway screams Quiet Time! I as relaxed reading the description. I am entering twice.

1) I signed up for the Devotions.

2) The one woman I'd like to talk to from the Bible is Ruth. It is amazing how she left all she knew, to follow her husbands mother, to a place she knew nothing about. She must have seen God in Naomi in a way no one else did.

I am glad i found this blog. I will be back OFTEN.

I have been reading this wonderful site for quite a while now, and it is always such an encouragement to me! I am always amazed at how God manages to have the devotion for the day meet my exact need at that time! I have just subscribed, though I have been going to the website daily for quite a few months.
The Biblical woman I would most like to chat with would be Mary, the mother of Jesus. I long to ask her what He was like when He was a baby, a toddler, a curious young boy...when did He begin acting more like God's Son than her son? Or was He always that way? Did His half-siblings resent Him? Did the mothers of daughters set their sights on Him for their girls because He was such a "Nice Young Man"? What were all those special things she pondered in her heart? Why did God choose her? What was it about her that made God want her to care for His Son so? I can hardly wait 'til I get to heaven, and Mary and I can have a special chat...I also am planning to have appointments with Sarah, Moses, Daniel, Ruth, Esther, Hosea, etc. etc. Well, at least I'll have plenty of TIME! God Bless!
