Unpacking My Heart

While I was at the conference this weekend, they invited the people there to visit the blogs of the scholarship winners and I PANICKED!

It was that same feeling of finding out company is coming over and you are desperate to clean up before they arrive. : )

I arrived home after my life changing weekend at 1:00 AM and didn't have time to do the "blog cleaning" I had hoped to do, but I wanted to say welcome to all of my new friends who are stopping by!

And I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to my faithful friends and readers who prayed for me while I was in North Carolina this weekend. I'm in awe of how much fun I had and how inspired I am walking away from the experience.

I think it will take months to unpack from my trip.

The clothes will go into the laundry right away and of course I’ll need my bathroom supplies and make-up so they won’t stay in the bag for long either. : )

But the “stuff” I’m bringing home in my heart and in my brain, I will be “unpacking” that for a very long time.

I’m absolutely exhausted, but more in love with Jesus than ever.

Saturday night on the elevator, I told the Lord, You go ahead and bring it on, but I’m beginning to wonder if I can take one more blessing or miracle this weekend. I just might explode with joy. : )

I don’t want to forget all of the ways Jesus showed me I wasn’t lost in this crowd of 600 amazing women. There were so many ways He let me know I know your dreams and hopes. I want you to know I see you and love you and have plans for you.

I wish I had time to tell you all the stories RIGHT NOW, but my family missed Mommy and I'm in high demand at the moment. As I “unpack” my full to overflowing heart and brain, I'll share them with you. I think I will start with what a trouble maker I was in the Charlotte airport. : ) Stay tuned!

Love,

It was a blessing to connect with you at the conference! I too have lots of "unpacking" to do. God met me there and answered my prayers and revealed to me some pretty amazing things that I was oblivious to before. Rest in Him!
