Pray for me. I pray for you.

Look where I was (again) this weekend.  Like I said, my life is awesome! I attended the annual Women of Worship Beach Retreat, this year in North Topsail.  A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. describes my experience in just one word.  Or how about Transforming.  Or Sanctified.  My life is a crazy journey lately and this weekend just added to the mess.

A mess perhaps, but a good mess.  I struggle to find the words to describe how I've been feeling lately.  I struggle to put down my emotions, thoughts, and feelings.  I want to.  I desire to.  If for no other reason than to share with you this journey I am on.  I would also love to document these moments in my life to forever look back on.  I can tell I'm on to something.  On the cusp of change.  Waiting for a new adventure.  And I want to remember forever this feeling of following God's will and trusting solely in Him.

Don't be turned off by my "Christian-eeze."  I am a sane person.  But I have found a friend in Jesus and I want to share with you the beauty in this love.  A love that now defines me.  And directs me.  I'm just now beginning to truly understand who Jesus is and His love for me.  There is now a comfort in His love, where before I felt uncomfortable and uneasy with the idea of this love.  Now I am trusting and hopeful.  And I know that I have a rich future ahead of me.

I mentioned I am struggling to find words.  Mostly because the more I write, the more I fear you think I am crazy.  That it is all nonsense and I assure you it isn't.  God's love is real.  And I'm anxious to share more about how my life is being transformed, but perhaps in small doses.  For your sake...and for mine.

For now I leave you with a fun video from our "PJ" party.  (Praise Jesus.  Pajamas.)  This so you can be sure we are as crazy as we seem...

"The Anointed Spoons" we call them!

I had a wonderful time at the beach.  I especially enjoyed the company of these two ladies...
As well as all the ladies!

I'm back now, and I am in serious prayer about where my life is leading.  Please continue, as always, to pray for me.  I will pray for you.
