Country Mouse Goes to the City

Remember when I told you that I did Scripture memorization with the LPM blog last year ? To celebrate a year of good, hard work, Beth Moore is having a weekend conference for those of us who participated & finished this challenge. I get to go!!!!! To say I am excited is an understatement. It is all bubbling up inside me while I try to go about my daily activities.

The celebration is in Houston at Beth's home church. Travis Cottrell will be there to lead us in worship music - and he can LEAD some worship music, that man. There will be about 500 other women there. We will say our verses and hear a word from God through Beth. There is also rumor of chocolate cake.

My hubby is going with me, bless him. He originally wanted to go to Houston to fish. (that's the first thing I think of when I think of Houston...fishing.) Turns out fishing in January in Houston is off season. Now he's being dragged along to site-see and eat yummy Texas barbeque, mexican and hopefully Chick-fil-a with me (I have small dreams). The kids are staying home and my mom is coming tomorrow to stay with them for the weekend. They are so looking forward to spending time with Grandma. Steve and I get 3 1/2 days alone together and that is priceless to me.

I do feel like the country mouse going to the city, though. A lot of insecurities pop up as I prepare to leave my kids and travel to places unknown. But I am learning to walk in faith and trust God for it all. I will keep saying my verses in preparation for the weekend celebration. It's like whipped cream on top of the sundae, this celebration...REAL whipped cream. The true treasure has been those verses coming to me when I need a Word. We'll have to celebrate together when we get THIS year's verses memorized. That'd be fun.


  1. I hope you have an absolute ball! You deserve it!!

  2. So fun to meet you this weekend! You did GREAT on your memory work for 2009, and I look forward to working though 2010 with you! I haven't settled on my next verse, but when I do, I'll let you know!!!

  3. Congratulations on a hard job done very well! I am so glad I went to Houston. What a blessing it turned out to be in so many ways, you and Leslie included. I am looking forward to see what else God has in store for us.
