Home sweet home


Awesome thing happened at the closing service today. Phenomenal word from Judy Jacobs again -- to say we were blessed is not even the word. It's so much more than I could describe. At the final praise/prayer/altar time Joy and I were right up against the stage. Josh and Leah Wesley and their team had been leading and did nothing short of an A-MAYZING job. Man, oh man. And when Marsha prayed the closing prayer, Josh stepped forward on stage and put his hand in his pocket or coat he was wearing and pulled out a CD of all their worship team and choir stuff and handed it to me and said, "here this is for you." (It's all their charts...I mean EVERYTHING they do.) He had nooooo idea what that meant to me. I was so blown away by some of their material I was up googling the song titles late after service the night before and looking up charts. (Wasn't able to find a lot of them but was reaalllly wanting them for our team.) God knew. I looked at Josh and said, "YOU HAVE NO IDEA..." The fact that the Lord spoke to him to give me this is just so significant to me. Then after the dismissal I talked to him and Leah for a loooonnng time which was just again...nothing short of amazing how God worked it out. I now have a bazillion songs to teach our team!! They are also going to be helping me with some things in the future and I am about to BUST at the possibilites!


Joy and I stayed quite a long time at the end of the conference to say goodbye to our friends. It took forever to talk to everyone that I wanted to talk to. I had a GLORIOUS time talking as long as I could stay and talked and hugged (and did some crying too -- the good kind of crying, not sad crying.)

We left and went back to Joy's in Lakeland and Larry was waiting at their house with Keith and the four of us went out for a combo lunch/dinner since it was 3 pm. Had a great time for a few hours talking and going to their church afterwards to see how their new building project is coming along. It's going to be so great when it's done in February!

Larry and I came home and I made the chicken and dumplings fo choir lunch and unpacked and all that stuff. Larry had cleaned the majority of the house while I was away. I was so happy to walk in and see it like that. After I finished doing what I had to do we went out and ran/walked for 2 miles. Teeb is training for his upcoming 5-K and I just want to get back to exercising on a regular basis again like I did months ago but have gotten out of the routine with things that have happened these past few months. Plus, I just love doing things with him. I ran just a few short places within the 2 miles but he ran a mile and walked a mile.

I'd love to stay on and blog much more about all God did over the weekend but I'll save it for later since my house is clean and I've got this incredibly sexy man sitting next to me in bed while I blog, and...um...I haven't been home for 3 days. :-)
