The NON-Superwoman

I loved reading about your joy and the reasons for it. I adore that Kirk Franklin CD and that Kurt Carr song is such a happy number :-)


Brimming over with abundant joy---sounds like a wonderful place to be!

'Wish I was going with you to NM, too! I wanted to, but felt in my spirit, not this time. I now know why...I have bronchitis right after the stomach began yesterday and I knew the symptoms immediately. Now I have some antibiotics and should be on the mend soon.

Will you PLEASE write about this weekend on your blog??? I really want to hear all the gems, so I can chew on them and turn them over and change!

So glad for your joy!! That is especially when God is using you most..when that joy spills out over everyone you know...May it bless your family today and give you refreshment!

I'm praying for you guys this weekend! I know that God has something special and BIG for you all.

Love in Him,

PS Our church has music like that...wish you came to Tri-Lakes! :)

My week started out joyful but now has some trials mixed in. No reason why I can't be joyful in the midst of them though. Great post! Speaking of making things for people, I'm almost finished with my mini-gift for you. Don't get too excited--I haven't many crafty bones in my body. This is something that takes no talent but is still cute. My cup of tea!

We're a week behind you in WGPDUT (Bible study). Satan has been attacking--mostly through exhaustion and discouragement. Thanks for the heads-up on week 3. I'll look forward to the safety of obedience lesson.

Have fun this weekend!!

I can almost feel your joy! How lovely. Thanks for the great music info, I am always looking for new Christian music to listen too. Have a great weekend at the Beth Moore conference.
