I am probably not going to be posting anymore this week after this one, simply because:
- I have a sinus infection. Yes, the sickness that I have talked about has morphed into an actual identifiable, drug prescribable illness. But hopefully with the start of drugs comes the start of health... I appreciate your prayers b/c my voice has definitely been affected and I have to speak on Saturday... perhaps some of you remember the coughing situation from last year? I am having flashbacks.
- I have to pack and make sure my daughter packs.
- We have an out of town guest. Oh Kaaaren, I have your daughter. And I might not return her!
- I have to make food for my family to eat while I am gone. I did actually get to the grocery yesterday to get the stuff they will need for meals, even with a sinus infection. Insert martyr pose here.
- My son has a consult for some oral surgery he is having on Monday. We are book-ending my She Speaks experience with his surgery. Isn't that special?
- That same son has a birthday party tonight at our pool. Because, you know, it wouldn't be fitting to just relax and take things easy the night before a big conference now would it? Nope. It would seem not!
So, hence the reason for this being my last post for the week. BUT I will be Twittering all through the conference so you can catch up with me here and see what's going on (Twitter updates are in the top right corner of the blog), check my status on Facebook (Twitter feeds right to Facebook-- I just love technology--when it works for me and not against me), or follow me on Twitter (there is a link in the top right corner that will take you to where you can follow).
I want to leave you with one last thought that I read yesterday in my quiet time. For those of you who are going to She Speaks, I want you to be thinking about this verse all through the weekend. Because it's what we all need to remember:
Psalm 57:2, "I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills His purpose for me."
We all have different purposes-- custom made for us, crafted by His hands. It's easy to look over at the purposes of others and get off track. It's easy to see others' purposes being fulfilled and wonder: will that ever be me? This weekend, make your heart's cry for His ears and trust that He WILL fulfill His purpose for you.
