Day 240 - Saturday, August 28

This morning started off with a very special time of worship. Hearing thousands of women's voices being lifted up to God was so beautiful!!

This is our group!!
Do you recognize anyone?

Lori from The Davidson Den lives near me and joined us on the trip!! It was so great to spend the weekend with her and get to know her better!!

Day 239 - Friday, August 27

We got up at 4:30 this morning to drive to Tulsa for the Women of Faith Conference.

Tonight, we got lost trying to find a particular restaurant for dinner. But ended up finding Wolfgang Puck's restaurant!!! What a treat for this foodie!!! And the food was A.MA.ZING!! The cool thing was that we had just heard one of the speakers talking about "detours" in your life that seem frustrating but are completely orchestrated by God.

you leave the henna on for several hours and then peel it off.
It washes off after a week or so.

Tonight I made panini's and we enjoyed our last evening with my MIL before she heads home. We have so enjoyed her visit!!

Join me as we lift her up to our Father, encourage her and surround her with love.
