Revolve - done, Deeper Still - Soon, Thankfulness.

4 Real. That was the theme of the The Revolve Tour this past weekend in Ft. Worth. 2 days of great music, talks, drama's and thousands of screaming girls. I really felt like Sophie and I needed some alone time together, alone in the midst of thousands, but it was wonderful. We left for Ft. Worth on Friday early afternoon and checked into our hotel just in time to freshen up and walk over to the Ft. Worth Convention Center. I didn't know what to expect, but it was amazingly fun. Sophie had a great time as well. I just loved being with her, she is fun, laid back, always has a smile...she is easy to be with. The Revolve Tour will be back in the Dallas area, Garland to be exact, in January 2011. Next time we are hoping to get a big group of mom's and daughter's together and go as a group. Some of the highlights for Sophie was to hear her new favorite singer...Brit Nicole, and she loved the talk of a girl named Jen who was singing on the praise team. Jen was elected Homecoming Queen for her University in Indiana, and Saturday was their homecoming game and parade, she missed it all to be at Revolve. My favorite part was listening to Jenna Lucado. She was easy to listen to, she had a great talk and she was totally fun and laid back, and Chad Eastham did a couple of talks from the guy point of view. He had great insight and the girls really enjoyed hearing what he had to say, so did the mom's. I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough to anyone who has a teenage or pre-teen girl. It was an investment in character and their walk with the Lord. LOVED IT!!!

A conference for the Women is coming up in Oklahoma City, OK December 4-5,Deeper Still with Kay Arthur, Priscilla Shirer and Beth Moore. Two whole days of praise and worship and some fresh words from the Lord delivered by these amazing women. Each one gifted in sharing the truth's of the Lord, each of their talks based on and filled with scripture, I CAN'T WAIT!!

Thanks for all the encouraging words on my previous post. I had been fighting the feelings of fear for a while and thought I just needed to be real about it, face it, and let the Lord work which He did. Through the words left as comments and also through the face to face interactions from friends speaking truth to me. I am excited to hop on the path of education on the back of that bicycle built for two with God in the drivers seat.

The holidays are right around the corner. On Sophie's and my drive back to Abilene yesterday morning I put on a Christmas CD I have had in my car since last Christmas. The cold and rainy weather that we drove through on most of our trip was screaming Christmas to me. This morning I was wondering what is it that calls me to Christmas time in my heart months before the holiday is even due, every single year. The remembrance of the birth of Jesus brings about such warm and fuzzy feelings to me, it leads the way to family time, hot chocolate, pumpkin bread, and people of good cheer all around. I love Christmas time so much. Counting down the holidays until I can be legit in my Christmas music.

The kids are out of school today. I am so excited to have a day to hang out with them. Derek has football practice but other than that we will be at home spending some good (cleaning and organizing) time together.
