About 4 months ago my wonderful friend Terra talked me into going to the Beth Moore conference. Our church plugged it for a couple of weekends in our video news and I have to say I wasn't sure how to take the phrase "We're going to put frosty lipstick on the face of bible studies." Imagine that, plus a really southern accent. Ha. None-the-less, I went and I am thrilled to say that I LOVED it!
After the past 2 weeks, this was something I definitely needed. It was refreshing, relaxing and inspiring. Not only did I hear the word of God, I worshipped!! There is something so wonderful to me about worshipping with a group of believers. I am amazed at how the hand of God moves upon his people when they are worshipping together. Wow. Selfishly, I loved that I attended a worship service that I did not have some kind of responsibility for. Don't get me wrong...those times are wonderful too, but it's always nice to sit back and receive. I was truly blessed.
I got to room with some very dear friends in my life. 2 of whom are seniors in high school and 1 who is one of my very best friends ever. I love their love for life and their passion for worship. Plus, I haven't laughed so hard in a LONG time. I forgot what it was like to just be a girl. Silly, I know, but honestly, it's an easy place to get. Jason stayed home and took care of Jack-Jack. (He is doing much better. It's the medicine making him throw up, but it's now under control.)
Thank you God for bringing me to my knees this week and for blessing me with a weekend to refresh. How often I forget to get on my knees....and how hard it is to humbly do so. BUT, You are good.
