Sunday is the big day.
It's our church's 50th birthday and I have been in charge of planning the party. It is an outreach project -- who can have a birthday party without invited guests? We have asked the surrounding community to celebrate with us and my prayer is that they see Jesus, that they are enveloped in joy, that they have fun, but that they see the purpose behind all this -- a witness of the God's amazing, unconditional love for them.
Needless to say, I have been a bit busy. But, I have still been writing. In the spirit of being random and giving myself grace for not writing a specific post (or for finishing my art this week) for today, I'm linking up my posts for this week so you can check them out if you feel so inclined.
First, the sad state of my art piece this week:
It is not nearly finished, but you can read the significance of this particular flower here. (Side note: My oldest daughter just walked in the room. Who drew this? I did, I say. Wow, Mom, I didn't know you were an artist. That's really good. God is so kind to bless me with this words, eh? Especially so early in the morning.)
Last weekend, I went to the Women of Joy conference in San Antonio. It was amazing, to say the least. Here is the pouring out of my heart from this conference. It is a post that completely rocked my heart as I was writing it. It's called "Torn in Two?" and you can find it here.
Finally, if you need some encouraging words because you have dealt with (or currently are dealing with) food addiction, you can find them here.
I hope you all have a blessed Friday and weekend! Y'all are such an amazing group of people and I am so glad that God encouraged me to walk with you in this land of blogs.
