See you in a few days!

Well, I managed to blog every day even without my brain fully present. Today I get to reunite with my brain. I get to sit on the mountain. I get to go to the little worship room. It is going to be glorious.

In just a bit I will head to the airport to meet up with the other peeps who will board the charter buses and head for the mountains. Yippee! I’m filled with anticipation and excitement and wonder at what the weekend will hold. Will it be what I expect? Will it be anything like the last time I was there? Will the peeps be like the last set of peeps? Will I recognize any of the faces? I wonder what each person is most looking forward to. I wonder what each person wants and expects to gain this weekend.

One thing I know is He will be there. He has a plan for the weekend for each of us. A very personal plan. I’m very excited to find out what that is. It’s like opening a gift and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

I’ve not been nearly as anxious about this weekend as I was this time last year. For that I am thankful. Yes, I’ve still got a list of worries and fears to give to Him, but the one that is not here this year makes me jump for joy. This year I am not afraid He won’t be there for me. This year I am not afraid He won’t talk to me. I am so thankful He took that fear away.

See you peeps on Sunday!!

That’s one good fry…

I have never seen someone enjoy a bag of fries like that. I think she would have stuck her head in the bag and licked the grease and salt off of it if she could have. I am pretty sure that in those moments she was eating those fries the entire world disappeared. She had to be in her 70’s! At that moment, I bet she felt like a little girl. I was sad for her when she started digging in the bottom of the sack looking for more. She looked so disappointed.

I hope I enjoy all that I have been given as much as she enjoyed those fries. You could tell she wasn’t going to miss one tasty morsel.

A Battle in Haiku!!

The enemy lurks.
Trying to discourage me.
I am onto him.

I know where to run.
He is a Mighty Fortress.
He will protect me.

Get out of here pest
You can’t have my happy days.
He has bigger plans.

I have my own trick.
As soon as you hear His name.
You run for cover.

You have lost this game.
He has already won this.
Praise His Holy Name.
