It’s almost lunch time but I feel like I just woke up. Does daylight savings time throw you off?? Whew, it takes me a week to get back to normal!
How was your weekend? Leah and I flew to Knoxville, TN Friday morning for the WINGS women’s conference in Sevierville where I was speaking this weekend. It was so much fun! I loved the WINGS event team (special hugs Tamara!!) and getting to meet women of all ages and hear how God spoke specifically to their hearts and made them feel like it was just for them. Love it when He does that!
The worship leader, Beth, and I looked like twins. Not only did God orchestrate the music to flow perfectly with my messages, but He coordinated our outfits, too! We had on the exact same pants and coral colored jackets Friday night. She is 5’2 (just like me) and we look so much alike that a woman gave her a photo of me on Saturday and said, “Here I thought you’d want this picture of yourself.” We got a good laugh out of that!
We flew home Saturday and were picked up at the airport by the Swope crew around 8pm. Then we drove around two parking decks looking for Leah’s car because she didn’t remember where she parked. Poor thing got stuck in traffic on Friday morning behind a wreck and almost missed our flight. I encouraged her to park in daily and throw her hairspray and other things you can’t take on board in her car and just use mine. That way she wouldn’t have to check her bag and we’d just pay a little extra for her parking.
So glad she did! She got to the airport 20 mins before take-off and ran up to the gate right as they were boarding. And I have to admit, I enjoyed looking for her car and giggling under my breath. Now my family knows I’m not the only crazy woman who doesn’t remember where she parked!
I also spent time this weekend reading through Thursday’s comments and praying for each of you who shared your story. If you haven’t read that post yet, you can here. You’ve moved my heart with your willingness to go there with me.
Yesterday our family went to church and had lunch at a little diner nearby. During Aster’s nap, JJ and I went over to Tyndall mattress store . For those of you who knew about my back problems and sleep deprivation due to mattress issues, we finally ordered our mattress! I’m so excited about how it’s going to change my life to get more sleep and be free of all this back/neck pain!
Last night while our boys went to youth group, I spent time getting ready for the week, planning our menu, ordering groceries online and straightening up the house. Today I’ll be writing and taking it kind of easy catching up.
So, what did you do this weekend? And what will your Monday will look like? I’d love to have peak into your everyday life. UPDATE: I love what Tonia did in her comment. If you have a blog, be sure to leave a link, too!
