I am succumbing to the urge to write something beautiful…now if I only had the talent!

I am in the middle of reading a really great book by Susanna Foth Aughtmon titled “My Bangs Look Good & Other Lies I Tell Myself” and let me tell you, it’s fabulous! I am actually laughing out loud, confusing my kids and startling my cats. Then they look really disturbed when tears roll down my cheeks as I read the next paragaph. It is honestly that true to life – it captures the joys, struggles and the lies we face every day. I can’t wait to finish it! I’ll write a full review then.

Tonight I am packing for a conference in Seattle. It’s been a long time since I’ve been involved in something so much bigger than just me. I look forward to being refreshed and inspired, encouraged and equipped for my ongoing journey through youth ministry. Am I expecting too much from three days? I don’t think so…GOD is bigger than leaving people empty-handed, me included.

Aahhh…there is the dryer buzzer…I can finish packing now. Sad, isn’t it, that my laundry is so far behind that I can’t finish packing until I finish the laundry?
