Leaving on a jet plane…


Well not really a jet plane but I am leaving today in a car.
With my sis-in-law.
To Dallas.

After a more than a year now of praying and planning….it's finally here.
I'm waiting for Heather to swing by and pick me up this very moment.
Eeeeep!


I spent this morning reading over my notes and praying for everyone who will be there…especially the ladies who will end up in my small group. I can't wait to finally see there beautiful faces and hear their stories….whoever they are. 

I aint gonna lie. I've been nervous.
This month has been glorious having so much time with our grandkids with a major wedding that I helped with thrown in there too.  I'm was feeling frazzled. Running on empty.
Thinking….the poor ladies who end up with me are gonna get gipped.  I feel so unprepared.

Then last night my sweet church family gathered around me and prayed over me and for all the ladies who will be there. A sweet peace filled my heart and replaced all the anxiety.
Then later as Nick taught, he shared this verse ….

"If we are faithless,
He remains faithful;
He cannot deny Himself"
2 Timothy 2:13

Praise God that it's not about me and my performance.
It's all about Him and His faithfulness. 
I know He will use me this weekend in spite of me…. a wretched, broken sinner.
His grace is amazing. Can't wait to see what He pours into my heart.
Can't wait to meet so many other sisters in Christ.
Can't wait to see some of my dearest friends and just fix my eyes on them.
Can't wait for God to do His thing.

If you think about it at all this weekend, please pray for us.
For transformed lives and that we leave Dallas more like Jesus.

  2. I will definitely be praying for you and for all the wonderful ladies in attendance. HE is prepared for this event and I have no doubts that He will show up and it will be AMAZING. I look forward to following along on IG and absorbing what I can through the screen of my phone. I wish so much that I could join you all but I have to remember that it's all in His time...perhaps next year. Hugs!!
