|Me with my festive solo supper.|
I am here in a library in North Carolina quickly blogging to you while I have internet access! Oh, how I’ve missed the internet on a big screen! It’s me and four senior gentlemen in the newspaper room here. I’m trying not to chuckle as I type fast and furiously before time runs out. All of our stomachs are growling. It’s past lunch time!
I must be quick as I tell you I am in the mountains preparing for two events.
The first event? Sister Retreat! It is that wonderful time of summer when my sister and I meet in the mountains of Western North Carolina for a few days of chai sipping, knitting, Bible study, eating, talking, laughing, and sharing of tips relating to phones, fashion, organizing, computers, cooking, housekeeping, hair care, and anything that relates to anything we may do while together.
It’s a blessed time that we both treasure and it is just never long enough when we get together.
No joke, we bring our SUVs packed to the hilt with whatever we think we may need during our days together. And our two vehicles arrive from Georgia and Tennessee with all the things we think we might possibly need and then some.
I have been preparing the food, the house, and a few surprise gifts for her while she’s here.
The second event? I’ve been working on some things as I prepare to go to She Speaks in two weeks. I’ll be presenting two talks to be critiqued while there and so I am hoping that if you have read down this far that you will add this to your prayer list for me and all the ladies (700 strong from all over the world) as we prepare our hearts, spirits, and gifts to bring glory to God in the way we write and speak while in Concord, NC and in the years beyond our time there. Pray that we would have wisdom and discernment as to how God is directing each of us to use the gifts He gave us once we depart. Pray for God to bless us with opportunities for His sake. Thank you!
I better get back to the house. My sister will be here in an hour and I don’t want her to show up to the house without me there! Yes, that has happened as I got sidetracked in the grocery store last year. Who knew there are so many crackers to go with cheese?
Feel free to leave a comment of anything that pertains to anything I wrote about today. Please. Please?!
