A List - because life is too random right now

1) Wow. The whole "I See What You're Saying" thing was an absolute blast the other day. I so enjoyed getting to see some other bloggers and get a feel for their personalities on the screen. I really look forward to doing it again sometime.

2) Thank you to those of you who prayed for my new airplane friend and I as we went to BSF on Wednesday morning. We had a little bit of a hard time getting going (aka Satan tried to interfere) but finally made it and she is very excited about starting the class. What a blessing it is to me to be involved in whatever the Lord has going on in her life. I'm sure He will do a work in mine at the same time!

3) My man is going to a VEEP Debate watching party tonight. (Yeah, he's a little bit of a nerd.) And I'm excited for him. (How big of a nerd does that make me?)

4) A girlfriend and I were talking on the phone this afternoon and in the course of the conversation we realized that our kids played against each other in soccer... this past Saturday. DUH.

5) And now the big news... You'll never guess what I'm doing this weekend.

I'm going to a Life Today taping for Beth Moore's Wednesdays with Beth.

I went once before back earlier last year in my pb days (pb = pre-blog). It's really an exceptional time of study in a much more intimate setting than an LPL conference. It's also a lot of teaching. She usually does 5 sessions in the weekend.

We SO need to have a Siesta Fiesta for a Life Today taping and have all us Siestas fill up that studio. How FUN would that be? Kim? Patty? Are you reading this?

It's so amazing how all this came together. My friend Keal and I are on the email list for the audience. You have to pretty much see the email and reply immediately to have a shot at tickets. The email came at about 1:30 pm while I was at lunch with a friend. I saw the email on my nifty iPhone but couldn't reply for reasons that I don't fully understand, so I called Keal. I got back to my office and both of us had replied by no later than 1:50. Neither of us got tickets.

Then we got word a week or so later that one of her friends from church did get tickets and she and I were going to get to go with them. THEN we got word on Wednesday that the entire rest of the group had to back out and now we had six tickets total. We have been working to put together all the girls from our Couples Bible Study group (you know, the Dinner Party group) and I think, even though it's last minute, all of us are going. Oh, I can't tell you what a blessing it has been to see how God landed all this in our laps. I can't wait to see what kind of WORD He has for us this weekend.

Anways, Beth Moore usually does one or two question/answer times, so the floor is open. Is there anything you want for one of us (me and my girlfriends that are going) to ask Beth Moore for you if we get a chance?

That is so awesome!!! Yes, you can ask Beth when she is going to be in Florida and let me know.

I am sooooo jealous! How do you get to do these great things so often?!? I'm sure you will be so blessed by this weekend!

My ?...I'd really love her to do a parenting study from a mom's perspective. I would love to know her perspective of what the bible says about parenting and using it practically in our everyday lives.

Ok. I guess that's not really a question, but more of a statement...

How awesome for you!!! Oh I wish I were going with you!!!

I am taking my son and we are going to a viewing of the VEEP debate in a theater tonight with a "discussion" afterwards. Thing is, it is being hosted in a very liberal neighborhood downtown. We are conservatives. Geesh.Does that make us nerds too?

Have a great time at the Moore taping! You'll be famous.

The G's said...

Did I bawl? Yes, when she was introducing me to her friends. She said "This is my mom. But she is not just my mom, she is my forever Mommy." Gush gush, right?

I left you a gift on my blog. I am so glad that you get to go to the tapings. Have a wonderful time in the Lord, and bring back a word.

Oh girl, that is some awesome news! I always love weekends away that are soaked in the Word.

Ask her (if you get the chance, of course) how many hours she spends working in 1 week. Because I just know it has to be a crazy amount!

Posting this so I don't forget... I'd like to ask her if she has any book recommendations.
