It was my first opportunity to hug the necks of women who have taught me and encouraged me through through their blogs in what has been a very trying year. And yet God used every minute of it to draw me closer and closer to Him.
There's Patty Williams,
Beth Herring and Yolanda Rogers,
Melena Cummings with Miesta Moose,
my new friend Georgia to name a few.
What a time of laughter, fellowship, worship and digging into the Word.
Thank You God for providing me with this opportunity to go and the means to make it happen.The highlight of the entire weekend for me was the brief moment that I had to share personally with Beth Moore just how much she really means to me. She is a woman of integrity and honor. A woman who has caused me to want to dig deeper into God's Word, to desire to know Him better, to want to love Him with all of my heart.
As her Pastor shared with us Sunday morning after service, "She is the real deal, no pretense. The same person you see on the stage is the same person off of the stage". What a blessing she has been to my life.
I am excitedly, looking forward to the next Siesta gathering in 2012. There are so many of you that I have yet to meet. There is nothing better in the entire world than time spent with women who share the same passion and love for the One True God. Thank You for making my first live LPM event an 'Event of a Lifetime'.
