Amy, Rhonda, and Myself made it to Orlando for the Mops convention. We were joined by our other friends Kim, Nancy, Tonya, & Jennifer. We bought our groceries, got registered, and headed to our first General Session. Matt Redman led worship was really cool. We alll liked that we got to see the person who wrote the songs we love...heart of worship, blessed be your name, better is one day, and you never let go. Then Mary Beth Lagerborg read the story of the Three Little Pigs while it was being acted out on stage. And she talked about having a firm foundation, a solid structure, and knowing the enemy (the wolf). It was so easy to see how a simple children's story could have such a biblical model for living. Then Elisa Morgan, CEO of MOPS talked about how much God loves us. And we mean really loves us. This isn't the kind of he loves me, loves me not, kind of love we here about as children on the playground. this is the real I know who you really are and I LOVE You! Just as you are I LOVE YOU. That God has chosen each of us., That we matter to Him, and that we are never alone. When are children are disobedient, when our husband walks out, when Mom has cancer, when a child gets injured, when you feel you are alone in this world, WE ARE NEVER ALONE! God has given all Christians the gift of the Holy Spirit. He dwells in us. He builds His home in us. He LOVES us.
So now we have ironed on our bling to our shirts. Had a snack with our friends, And we are drifting off to dream land. Until 7AM when we are up for the next full-day of sessions! Check back then!!!
