Choose to Become

All things are possible to him that believeth ~ Mark 9:23

You can decide today to choose to become a little closer to the person you are meant to be. 

This was the theme of the Time Out for Women conference.  My mom, my sister Kerry and my friend Becky joined me for this fun-filled, inspirational weekend.  There were so many fabulous speakers, I don't even know where to begin.  I laughed. I cried.  I took notes.  I danced.  I spent waaaay too much money in the bookstore.  Most importantly I learned.  I learned that I need to spend more time looking for opportunities to serve.  I learned that I need to recognize the amount of mothering that I do.  I learned that I need to rely on the Lord (I really need to work on this one).  I learned that my tribulations will either make be bitter or better.  I learned that this life is about becoming better.

 As a mother, it is hard to get away for a weekend.  But sometimes you come home better and more prepared for life's challenges.  This was one of those weekends. I am grateful for a husband that supports me and encourages me to get away...I won't tell him that one of the books I bought at the bookstore is titled Strangling Your Husband is NOT an Option
