|speaking to 120 lovely young women|
I woke up, this Monday morning, with my mind full of wedding plans, the book of Nehemiah (studying for a retreat in April), and an urge to rearrange the living/dining room furniture. (making the space work better for enjoying some meals, playing games and watching movies with Christy, Jenny and Daniel and us.)
I lifted weights with Dave (a fun shared experience), ate breakfast (turkey bacon and egg on Ezekiel bread), had my quiet time in Acts 15 (one should practice what ones teaches), moved the furniture ... and was about to settle in for several hours of study.
When ... Christy invited me to go to Barnes and Noble with her to browse, read and drink coffee. She often knows just what I need, before I do. A wonderful, creative break after a busy weekend. Perfection.
ps. I looked at a wedding magazine with three goofy/dumb ideas. (no offense if you love the idea)
*pass out a feather to each wedding guest, a
different color for each table, and guests will
"flock" to the correct table.
*cut huge circles of colored paper and cover
the wall behind your wedding cake.
*make your own flower pots out of cement
and plant a cactus for each guest.
Sorry, Martha ... I usually love your ideas.
pss. If you would like to have my teaching on how to have a quiet time, e.mail me, I would be glad to send you my notes. (write "requesting notes" in the subject line, so I do not think you are spam)
Linking with the lovely Soli sisters, wondering how was your Monday?
