Busy as a Bee

19 Aug

Since my resignation from my job, life has been anything but slow and boring! After I returned from my trip to Chicago, I spent a couple of days at home only to do laundry and repack my bags to head to Atlanta, GA! I spent most of the week with my dear cousin and had a blast just relaxing!

Then we celebrated Anna’s 3rd birthday! Can’t believe how quickly she’s growing up! Makes me feel old – haha! 😉


She really didn't like everyone singing "Happy Birthday". :)

This past weekend, I had the privilege of participating in the 5K Walk for Life that was sponsored by the Pathways Unplanned Pregnancy Center!

So besides all that and little get-togethers, family times, lots of cooking and baking, teaching piano lessons, and participating in music practice at my church – it’s been a full few weeks!


Revive Tour

23 Jun

This past weekend, my mom and I had the opportunity to take a short trip to Lancaster County for the Revive Tour with Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Nancy from Revive Our Hearts Ministry was finishing her three month on-the-road recording trip. By this time, Nancy had already travelled to Dallas, Houston, Chicago, and other cities recording an upcoming radio series on the names of God that will air the early part of next year. Lancaster was her last and final stop.

We started off Friday evening with a praise and worship session led by Shannon Wexelberg. What an awesome Christian and  exceptionally talented musician! Our hearts were stirred as we focused in exalting Christ and moved in quiet meditation as we focused on our Saviour’s great love! Nancy gave a powerful message that touched many hearts and lives. Tears were shed and hearts were encouraged as Christ met with us.

Our Saturday schedule started off bright and early with the first recording session beginning at 9 AM. Nancy led us into a study on four names of God: Man of Sorrows, Redeemer, Lamb, and Amen. As I sat there listening to the truths of God’s Word , I was blessed. It’s always good to be in the house of God and it is a special treat to be with hundreds of ladies who are seeking to know more of Christ while being taught by such a great woman of faith as Nancy.

Saturday afternoon, there was a luncheon held for women serving in ministry. My mother and I attended and once again enjoyed moments of praise and worship with Shannon, fellowship, and teaching. A special bonus was being able to listen to Nancy play a beautiful hymn composition on the piano!

Coming home, I could sense that the Lord was tugging at my heart. I know that I’ve been a bit lackadaisical in my pursuit after Christ. I know He hasn’t changed but my heart has. I don’t want to remain where I’m at – No! I want to consistently be moving forward, ever growing, and ever changing for my Saviour’s glory and praise!

I’m so thankful for the godly influences God puts in my life to spur me on and keep my encouraged! I’m blessed for Biblical teaching to keep me on course. And most of all, I’m thankful for a Saviour who loves me unconditionally and is ever so merciful!

For our last evening, we spent it on the Queen Mary in Long Beach. So authentic as everything is just the way it was in the 30’s. Awesome experience!
