Is it possible to be both extremely exhausted and incredibly refreshed?
IN THE NEWS:
* 26 people killed after gunman opened fire in Texas church
* John Stamos performed as Willy Wonka in the live version at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend
* New York marathon was run over the weekend
IN THE WORD:
Jesus cannot teach us anything until we quiet all our intellectual To be brought to the place where we can hear the call of God is to be profoundly changed ~ Oswald Chambers
IN MY LIFE
My heart is full after a full weekend of speaking this weekend. I guided the women of First Baptist Nashville through 6 sessions over the course of 3 days at a retreat in West Tennessee and while I was wiped out by the time we got in the car to go home, my heart was full. I was so blessed, not only by the worship, but by how these women welcomed me into their lives and shared their stories with me.
Thankfully, I made it home just in time to hear my daughter perform her first cello concert of the season at a local assisted-living facility. Not only was it precious to see her in her first concert as first-chair cello, but I really enjoyed the moments we spent before and after interacting with the residents there. It reminds me just how much we are made for relationships!
I also just picked up my Office my Martha Stewart Convertible Tote Bag from Staples. I’ve been coveting for over a year. My husband actually tried buying it for me for Mother’s Day earlier this year, but I couldn’t bear paying full price ($60) for it, so after earning $20 in Staples Rewards and getting a $20 off $60 coupon in the mail, it was finally time to bite the bullet!
