Mentally Unpacking

Hello Good People!

I’m back!  And I have much to process about my weekend; it was beautiful.  I’m so glad I went.  I made some lifelong friends.Screen Shot 2013-10-28 at 6.50.35 AM Screen Shot 2013-10-28 at 6.52.28 AM

Those crazy girls are the roommates I mentioned in my last post; Sandy, Lindsey and Resealia.  I am in girlfriend withdrawal this morning…totally have to admit that.  Wah!  It was like the most fantastic slumber party ever.  I crashed hard last night. :)  But the missing sleep was totally worth it.

I also met this gorgeous soul; I can’t tell you what a wonderful suprise it was to meet Lindsey face to face.  Only a month or two prior, I stumbled across the whitebuffalostylingco and instantly fell in love with her heart and style.  Neither of us knew we were each attending, so it was a wonderful meetup and we spent some great time together.

And Summer; I met this sweet girl who I did NOT personally get a picture with and am terribly sad about; but let me tell you; I am so excited to now be her friend.  She has a new blog that is going to take off in amazing ways and is one courageous woman that I admire deeply.

Ok, time is short and the babes will be waking any moment.  I wanted to share with you *some* of my lovely new friends this morning; there are more to come!  And there are some beautiful truths I discovered, and some ministries that I am partnering with that I cannot wait to share with you.  I’m busting at the seams with excitement over the whole weekend.

What I can say is that I can’t imagine another blog conference that would leave you red faced and puffy eyed most of the weekend (in a very good way).  Where more than blog benefits, you make lifelong friendships, enter beautiful worship, and come away blazing with an eagerness so powerful it consumes you…to start making a difference in lives across the world.

I want to share with you a blessing that was spoken over the ladies; it was during a powerful time of art and worship. (Yes, they most certainly go together!)  David Walker spoke this and left us in thankfulness and awe.

May the blessings released through your hands cause the windows to open darkened minds.

May the suffering your calling brings be but winter before the spring.

May the companionship of your doubt restore what your beliefs leave out.

May the secret hungers of your heart harvest from emptiness it’s sacred fruit.

May your solitude be a voyage into the wilderness and Wonder of God.

May your words have the prophetc edge to enable the heart to hear itself.

May the silence where your calling dwells foster your freedom in all you do and feel.

May you find words full of divine to find warmth to clothe the dying in the language of dawn.

May the slow light of Christ’s Communion be a sure shelter around your future.

Amen.

(And Amen.  There I go leaking tears again).

Be back with you again  soon!
