So Sorry!

I have really been at a loss for words about this past weekend. From the very beginning to the very end, the presence of the Lord was VERY strong. I am so thankful for the strength that he provides me when I need it most. I'm very encouraged. We were truly 'In the presence of Jehovah'.

I saw some of my very close friends minister in ways that I've never seen before. It made me very proud. I love them very much and I hope they know how much of a blessing they were especially to me.

It was really good to see all the Tn folk. I'm so glad Kailee got to see Mo. She loves Morgan. I notice her bond with KatieLynn this trip as well. That makes me so happy! Even though she doesn't have those spiritual connections here, I am so glad that she has those special bonds available to her when we travel.

I am so glad I got to meet EmilyLynn in person for the first time in a very long time. She is super awesome and pretty hot too. HAHA! I love you Emily! I hope we actually get to sit down and talk next time we see each other. Oh, and you're still more than welcome to come down anytime you want! Just gimme a heads up! :)

I think one of the main highlights was being approached by someone, hearing them say hello and turning around and realizing it was JOSH! I squeeled and y'all know I'm not a squeeler. Ahh, I love Josh Yohe! Just being around him makes me happy!

Just so I don't forget anyone, I'm also glad I got to see Lindsei! That girl is getting tall! Her & Morgan did a great job on their song. Andrea played some amazing piano, as always and Chelsei did great on the drums. Josh rocked the Sax and KatieLynn did really good with her signing. KatieLynn had JUST learned the song the day before. Very impressive. The most amazing thing about each of them is that they did it for the Lord. They came 7 1/2 looooong hours all for the LORD! Ahh, amazing kids!

Waaaaaaait a minute, I almost forgot about Cha. Chandler is super quiet, you almost forget he's there. I'm so glad he came too. I squeeled for him as well - although I don't think he cared quite as much as Josh. Haha! I love Chandler. I love his sense of humor. He's super cute too! WOO! :) Okay, enough about all that.


Moving on...

Yesterday was my mom's 50th birthday. I just want to say that I truly hope this is the year of miracles for her. She certainly deserves it. She said she feels 100 but just in case she's wondering, she doesn't look it. Haha! Love you Mom!

Tomorrow is my 27th birthday. The thought of it makes me cringe. I can't believe I'm sooooooo close to 30. It's unreal. I feel like I should be 20. I hope that all of my friends don't look at me as some old, married chic cause I don't feel it! Sure my bones are those of an 85 year old, but every other aspect, I'm STILL young! So don't hold my age against me!

Okay, well, that's enough rambling for now. In my next post, I will be talking about the motel room we stayed in. Awful & hilarious all at the same time. I took pictures of it. HAHA!

Check back soon.


HOLLAH!

7 folks had something to say.:

So many people were fasting and praying for this convention. I am so glad you got to go and be with God's wonderful people. This blog made me laugh and cry. I sent Josh a txt to read your blog today, every one needs to hear how much they mean to someone. Thanks for the looks comment, I feel like I have aged 100 years in the last 7. But I decided a long time ago to put my life in God's hands and that is where I want to stay. Many times I have come to crossroads in my life, one recently that only a handful knows about. The word of God and the responsibility I feel to my family has kept me on the straight and narrow. I want to keep my life in his hands. I want to keep my integrity and standing with God. He is after all an on time God. I don't know what the future holds, but I am thankful God holds mine. I am praying for my family daily and if we will do our part to do right, he will always do his. That I am clinging too, with everything I am.
