I'm Outta Here!

This weekend I will be attending a Christian Writer's Conference in the Bay Area - ALONE.

Can I just brag a teensy bit and say that I have the best husband in the world? I am leaving early in the morning and making lots of stops to visit family and friends first. Let me rephrase that. My very first stop will be Starbucks.

Did I say Paul was the best husband in the world? Ok, maybe that's is a bit over dramatic.

I meant to say, in the infinite, gargantuan, elephantine Universe!

He is watching the kids so I can learn as much as I can, be encouraged and hear from the Lord. Oh, how I pray that He speaks to me above a whisper. That still small voice is hard to hear when you are busy yapping with other gals who enjoying writing like you do.

So if you happen to be on HWY 50 tomorrow morning, I will be the one in the minivan with the pumpkin scone stuffed in her mouth, singing at the top of her lungs, and more than likely making an illegal lane change.

Can't wait to share it all with you when I return!

Have a great time and eat lots and lots of food! What a blessing your husband is.

You are such a hoot, Joanne...singing with a scone and illegal lane change.

Oh how I know what you mean when you say you hope He speaks to you louder than a whisper. Heck, even without gabbing girls distracting, I still need it louder than a whisper.

Hope you have a grand weekend. How wonderful you can have this conference close enough to drive.

I pray safe travels, an enjoyable time with all and that you HEAR from the LORD that which He is speaking to your heart.

May the Lord also bless your husband as he continues to be a blessing to you. It's a wonderful thing to have a sweet hubby and to be a sweet wife. I have one of those wonderful men as well. God is good.

Saw you over at my blog and thought I'd come visit wtih you. I love your header! I'll be back to hear all about your writer's conference.

Bless you.
