Monday is here but Friday is coming !

I can't wait until Friday ! I know at my age I shouldn't be wanting to rush through weeks but this Friday is special for a lot of reasons. Reason # 1 my oldest daughter Holli is going to be 14. Ok for that reason I would not want to rush but there is more... Reason # 2 It is also my best friend Patty's birthday, she is not going to be 14. Here is the biggie..... Reason number 3....We (Me, Holli, Patty and Georgia, another friend) are going to Nashville(NashVegas as we like to call it) to Deeper Still. Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Travis Cottrell and Anthony Evans are going to be there. Beth is my favorite Bible teacher. I am so excited because this will be Holli's first women's conference.
Now I must admit that when I first heard about this conference I thought...How can I go to this conference and not break my baby's heart by missing her birthday? So you guessed it..I am taking her with me !! What better time to introduce her to a deeper walk with God than on her 14th birthday. She is already quiet the Godly girl. She is very particular about her clothes, the music she listens to and many other areas of her life. She wants to honor God in all she does and I am so proud of her and blessed by God to have a teenage daughter that actually talks to her Parents and loves her family and her LORD !
Anyway Monday is here but Friday is coming and I can't wait !!! I have already been thinking about where we will eat. Priorities you know. I actually went on the Chick Fil A website and there is a link where you can plan your trip and find all the Chick Fil A locations on your route.
Oh course that is just breakfast. Chicken Minis are the bomb! We are thinking Joe's Crab shack for Lunch/Dinner. We are calling it either Linner or Dunch because it will be a combo meal for us on Friday as we will be waiting for the doors to open at the conference early.
Patty & I are serving as encouragers at the event and we love to do that. We have the awesome privilege of praying with other women who are hurting and need prayer. We have done this at several other events and take this responsibility very seriously.
I can't wait to see what God has in store for us at the conference. Send us your word O God, it will not return to you void.

Welcome to Blogland! Yes, this weekend will be here before we know it. I am excited on all levels. Who would have thought it would be 7 years since we were at the Sommet formerly known as the GEC?! Hint: the Greek doesn't like Chick-Fil-A. Go figure!

7 years Wow ! You know I just now thought of this but I think that was my first Beth Moore conference !
As far a Chick-Fil-A, I was thinking Chicken Minis. So perhaps we can cruise through Mickey Dees for the Greek !
