Ok, first of all ... probably could get a bit more creative with the post titles ... eeesh.
Secondly ... I'm sorry I've been pretty absent here over the last few weeks. I have things I want to write, but my thoughts are pretty fragmented and unable to come to post-worthy fruition. So I'm waiting until things come together cohesively before I start clicking away at the keyboard. I hope you understand.
In other news, this weekend I'm headed up to Hershey, PA for the Joyce Meyer conference. I don't really know much about Joyce Meyer but I am pretty excited about this because it was a direct answer to prayer. One morning I was crying out to the Lord (really, crying) and asking for a conference or something because I needed a good spiritual fill-up. And, for good measure, I threw in something about possibly making it free, and then snickered at my own optimism. My next moments involved googling the name of every major women's speaker I could think of and checking her speaking schedule. Eventually I came across this one - amazing worship leaders scheduled, a manageable driving distance, the ability to stay with family, and ... free.
So I'm pretty excited about this conference. I feel like the Lord took a gift box, wrapped it beautifully, tied a satin ribbon around it, and plopped it right in my lap. I can't wait to open it ...
And who knows, maybe this is just the catalyst my writing needs. At any rate, I'm sure you'll hear about this weekend soon.

And this "point of impact" ... not covered by our insurance. Oh yeah. Oh well ... moths and rust, moths and rust ...
I hope you all have a great weekend.
Tell me about you? Has the Lord given you any special gifts recently? Any specific answers to prayer? Any unfortunate TV incidents?
