What on earth do I say??? So stinkin excited!!!!!

UPDATE TO ADD: Flowers from my hubby! It's our 14th anniversary today! So sweet my man is!

So much is on my mind as I sign off from the blogworld for a few days....let me keep it short and sweet and to the point....at least I'll try any way!

**My husband is very capable of doing my "job" for 4 days while I'm gone, right?!

**My children will survive won't they??

**The pets will be fed and watered and loved on, right??

**I am about to embark on a spectacular event in San Antonio with people I do not know!!!

**God is up to something that I am anticipating in a way I've never known before.

**I also know there might be some difficult things going on in my heart as He speaks a word over me through our precious teacher, Mama Beth. I'm preparing for that.

**I will make some friends that I know I'll be friends for life with.

**I'm thanking Him in advance for the weekend with these women and for our teaching.

**I'm ready Lord. I'm ready to soak every ounce of You in. Change me, Lord. Let's do this thing!!!

I'll be taking my laptop with me and posting pictures and some fun, funny, and serious stuff along the way. I need y'all to be there with us so what better way than to put up as much as I can as quickly as I can.

Love you all dearly. Thank you for the prayers! I so wish you could all come. This is a glimpse of heaven....I just know it.

See you in TX girls!!! Don't forget your ticket to get in!

Big hugs and big blessings~

I am so excited for you!!! I know you will have a wonderfully blessed time. And I'm sure if my husband and kids can survive without me for 4 days (even if it was barely :), then yours will make it through with flying colors!

Holly said...

Amen! I'm ready...but not packed, as well.

Can't wait to see you, Fran!!

I'm doing a little happy dance in my heart right now!

Nerves and excitement all rolled into one!

I still have to pack! I'm doing that tomorrow!!

I have a great time! The kids will be fine and you will be back before you know it. Good luck!

Melinda said...

Oh girlie, girlie, girlie-girl!


Something BIG is getting ready to hit San Antonio, Texas and you and I (and hundreds of our other best friends that we don't know) are going to be there to witness it.

"...oh what a foretaste of GLORY DIVINE!"

Love you!!

I am so excited for you but so sad that I am not going to be there! So close yet so far!!!! I can't wait to hear all about it from all of you there. Can't wait for you and Lindsee to meet!

Maybe the best quote yet of what has finally come--Melinda's quote above, "oh what a foretaste of glory divine!" I think you and I might see each other first as I am tall, too! I truly can't wait. Safe travels. See you in San Antone. Love, Annette

I expect to see lots of pictures!!! I expect to read lots of notes!!! I expect you not to worry about the kids, the dogs, the hubs!!!!! I expect you to have an excellent time!!! If not for you then do it for me!!!!

Denise said...

Praying for you to be blessed beyond belief my friend, love you.

Michelle V said...

Amen! And can I just say...ditto! (Only I'm counting on my parents to keep my kids from killing each other, and that the boys will feed the pets!)

And then yesterday I found out that my Dad has suddenly got a growth of some type and he's going to the doctor this morning. I know God is in control!

Mary Lou said...

Prayed for your safe travel. Prayed for the meeting. Now, will pray for all those who've been left behind while the "moms" are away. Do take lots of pictures and posts, so the rest of us at home, can "almost" be there. Thanks... Blessings..

Cheryl said...

Oh how I wish I was going to be there to hug your neck!!!
Have an absolute blast!

Love ya!

Happy Anniversary!!!

ocean mommy said...

Those are some beautiful flowers! (we celebrated 14 in May!)
See you in A FEW HOURS!!!!!!

Try to get some sleep...I've got my alarm set for 5 so I can be praying for you as you drive...


Bev Brandon @ The Fray said...

See you in the morning or somewhere...I'm there!
!!!! Can't wait!

Alana said...

Can't believe I'm gonna miss it, but I know you'll have a fabulous time. Hug all the people I "know" for me! Maybe you could print off a picture of me and hold it up while you are taking pictures with everyone...so it looks like I'm there? Or maybe that's taking it a little too far?

Happy Anniversary! I hope you have a wonderful time in Texas! Have a great day friend!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
