Good Tuesday morning, friends! Hubs and I were a bit groggy this morning because a certain little puppy dog...not naming any names...MURPHY...decided that last night was going to be Bark Fest 2014 and barked that cute little head of his off for far too long. Then, once he got wrangled inside it was crazy town USA. But those sweet puppy eyes and kisses he gave us this morning because he knew he was in trouble was enough to make it all better :) That dog gets away with EVERYTHING.
Next weekend I have the true honor of being able to head north to Asbury Hills and be the speaker for my sorority's Spring Retreat. I am so excited to see everyone and worship with a group of woman that I hold so near and dear to my heart. The jitters are starting to set in a little bit but I am pumped to see what the Lord is going to do next weekend. This is my first time being the main speaker for any sort of retreat or conference and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous...I just want everything to perfect! And most importantly, I want the Lord to move in such a way that lives are changed and molded. That being said, I feel a lot of pressure (brought on only by own thoughts) to really deliver a message that is thought provoking for the girls. I want to remove myself and let the Lord flow through me.
I would sure love and appreciate any prayers you'd lift up for me throughout this week and next as I prepare and then next weekend as I deliver the message. I'm still working on tweaking my message and I feel like there are 100 topics that I could speak on, alas, I don't have that much time and they probably don't want to listen to me for that long ;) So, I think I've picked a topic that will encompass everyone and I pray that when they leave the Retreat that will feel like bold and confident women of Christ.
I can't wait to share all about the weekend once it's upon us!
