I'm in TEXAS!!! I've never been in Texas before. I've already had mexican food and a slew of margaritas. Ok. I'm kidding about the margaritas. But I did eat a yummy chicken casadilla yesterday with a whole passel of blogging women. My friend,
Kathy(class of 1979, Deland High School Grad, mother of 7, Opelika, Alabama resident...and even more. We met in 7th grade when we tried out together for cheerleading our audition numbers were 21 and 22 and WE BOTH MADE THE SQUAD...Go Green Devils!)and I met in Atlanta and then flew onto San Antonio for the Siesta Fiesta(its a long story). We are staying in a lovely Marriott (where she likes to keep the temperature at a freezing 68 degrees or so)using up David's Marriott points. It is a delightful thing to stay in a nice hotel for free(thank you love, I owe you). We flew out here to attend Beth Moore's Living Proof Live event and man, have we been to church! I can't help it, I just love Beth Moore. She is so funny and so passionate for Jesus. She inspires me.
The Lord met me here and said something brand new to me. Something I have never even thought about before. I'm not going to share that right now though. Maybe at another time. For now I will share the 8 truths that Beth wanted us to take to heart and embrace as our own. The key word was INHERITANCE, which I loved because in my Joshua readings I had just been reading about how the tribes of Israel received their inheritance, but the Levites received God Himself as their inheritance. Seriously, I had just marked that in my Bible the other day. Anyway, she shared that we are "heiresses" and these truths went along with that.
1. I am an heir of God. My life is not left to chance.
2. I am an heir of God. I am inheriting a kingdom.
3. I am an heir of God. He is my portion and I am His.
4. I am an heir of God. The downpayment has been made.
5. I am an heir of God. My boundary lines form a pleasing place.
6. I am an heir of God. The will has been activated.
7. I am an heir of God. I can be secure.
8. I am an heir of God. I have a beautiful inheritance.
I don't do Miss Beth justice, but just wanted to share the main points she shared. I would highly recommend any of her events. God will bless your heart and set you on fire for Him. She is coming to Orlando with the Deeper Still conference next September and I will definitely plan on being there. Want to come? Let me know :)
This evening was the Siesta pajama party. It was fun. Mostly because we met Erin. She was a hoot. She's 24 years old and so way hip. I hate her. She is so not my new bff. I told her I was going to put her in my blog. So here is Erin: Erin is so totally a break dancer. Isn't she the coolest?!
Well, its time to go to bed. I must put on my parka and climb under the covers while Kathy's noise maker(sound machine, she says...whatever!)lulls me to sleep(not). I have been so blessed to be here(thank you Eddie Lopez)and make such fun memories. It has been an absolute blast and one gal, Rachel, told Kathy and I how young and hip we are. Isn't that cool??? That compliment alone would have made my weekend. Not to mention all the great new friends I made(Edub). So, I'm signing off now...I'll be home, Lord willing, tomorrow. (Is Faye ever going away???)
