Magic~n~Miracles - She Speaks - My Heart is Full

It is hard to believe that a week ago today we were saying good-bye to new friends, taking pictures with our favorite authors/speakers, and eating some incredible desserts as we mixed and mingled.  Yes, it was our last night of SheSpeaks.  I wasn't ready for it to end. In fact, I have had a difficult time readjusting to reality!

Our worship music was by led by the very beautiful London Gatch of Elevation Church and the amazing Michael O'Brien,  Our keynote speaker was Lysa TerKeurst.  Once again she blew me away with her life stories, that by the way, can always be taken back to an episode in the bible. Mostly, I am anxious to have dinner at the TerKeurst's home  so I can sit at the "Sticky Farm Table" on family night! PS.  I'd really love to know what a Sticky Farm Table is! Whatever it is though, I'm in!

God showed up and He showed out.  Many experienced pretty amazing God moments, I was not excluded from that!  He chose my roommate on purpose,  I sat beside an amazing Jesus girl at a special invitation lunch, had several of my Online Bible Study sisters there to meet in person; incredible things occurred all weekend.  'This' is what is keeping this Jesus girl from coming down off of a 'God High' and making her way back to reality! God's presence kept us in awe. 

Do you imagine it was like that in the bible?  God performed miracle after miracle.  In Luke 2 the bible tells us that 'they spread the word and were amazed at what they heard of this new baby', much like the 750 of us at SheSpeaks. 

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.  When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen.

Mary 'treasured'  all these things and pondered them in her heart.  My heart is full as I continue to 'ponder' the wonders of this world, the wonders of what He brought to SheSpeaks; the blessings provided by His people, His disciples, those He uses as His vessel to share the good news.

Thankful and praying for each Jesus girl that attended SheSpeaks2013.  May God continue to direct and guide you as he molds you into the person He desires you to be.  Looking forward to 2014!

Treasuring and Pondering the Memories.

In God's Light
