God is good and we are almost ready for the 2,000 ladies who are coming to Free Indeed. Wish each of you could be here, it’s going to be uplifting, I just know it is.
I wanted to give you a picture or two but that will have to wait my computer does not read my camera card. I sound like a techie don’t I? That’s the problem I’m not.
Yesterday we stuffed 2300 bags for registration, 400 lunch bags for the ladies going out on outreach. I walked around a table from 8:30 am until 7:30 pm with a break for lunch and dinner. I slept like a log.
I know what you are wondering–what about my eating plan? Yesterday we had pizza for lunch–I on the other hand went to the Terrace Grill and had a salad. I know, I am patting myself on the back too. You know what? When I stared at all that crust I didn’t want it–hummmmm crust use to be my favorite part. I will tell you we went to a place called Eatzies, it is a gourmet deli and my “friend” LOL “made” me eat CHOCOLATE CAKE this was my first sweet since May 15, except for the Cinnamon roll I told you about. It was FABOO.
I can feel the presence of Jesus in this place, I know great things will happen here. Satan has worked hard to put obstacles on the way but our Lord is strong and He wants this convention to make a difference in each woman here. Please pray for FREE INDEED, pray for the speakers and the ladies who attend, we want to come from this place changed.
Have you noticed the days just fly by? Or is it just me? I don’t know where the time goes and the older I get the faster it goes. Why is that? You would think the older one gets the slower time would go. Maybe you have to get really, really old for that to happen.
I have many things to tell you so as my teacher use to say, “Listen up.”
Don’t eat partially hydrogenated shortening or high fructose corn syrup they are both really bad for you. Read your labels. Please
My weight is slow going but I am not discouraged. If you need to shed a few pounds you could start in with me. I still have 15 pounds to go so we could do it together. I have noticed my mind is clearer since I am not eating junk food and I have a lot more energy, and I have a lot more wrinkles.
I am leaving town headed for Colorado to do a tea in Wyoming, I am the speaker. I am doing my favorite talk, “Silver Boxes.” From Wyoming I will be going to Dallas for the Free Indeed Convention. I am telling you this because you won’t be hearing much from me. I will try to get a few pictures and post from time to time. If you want to read the blog try reading some old posts.
Please pray for my special friend Freddie, he has finally landed a temporary job that could turn into full-time. He will have his last chemo treatment in a little while and he is thrilled to have this job opportunity. Pray for his health and his job.
Here is your Thursday Recipe. . . these are one of my favorites I use to make them all the time.
Corn flake Potatoes
Boil potatoes with the jacket on and peel, if they are large you can cut them to a smaller size. Roll them in butter then in crushed corn flake crumbs. You can do this a day ahead. Bake on a cookie sheet until hot at 350. They are so good and you may want to serve them with sour cream.
The North American Division of Women’s Ministries convention, Free Indeed is September 25-27. Go to nadwm.org and click on Free Indeed for all information, 1582 women have registered, isn’t that exciting?
The NAD convention was held in Toronto about 10 years ago, my friend Angel and I gave a seminar on Women in Touch. This was an experience I will never forget. It is just amazing to be in the presence of all that Estrogen (I am teasing). It IS wonderful to “rub shoulders” with other women and to feel the energy that each one has for the Lord, for service and for fellowship.
Don’t forget your local retreat, I have looked over the list of speakers and I am impressed with what your conference directors and committees have put together.
September 25, 26, 27, you will want to be in Dallas, Texas. You may be wondering why would you want to be in Texas–and I am fixin’ to tell you. (a little Texas talk)
