Bathed in THE Spirit

The past few weeks have been amazing!  God's been drawing me closer and closer to Him and it all started when I surrendered and gave into myself and decided it was time to let go...
I'm just now getting the chance to blog since the Mom Heart Conference and by the way, it was AMAZING!!
I learned most importantly to be involved in Shelby's life and not dwell on the little things that each day brings that stresses me out and makes me frazzled.  Be on the floor with her, listen to her, laugh with her, make messes with her (hard for me w/ my OCD), explore the unknown with her,  be active with her....just minor things will make the most difference in her life and I'm already seeing it.  Yes, my house is WAAAAYYYYY out of control in my eyes as far as cleanliness and tidiness, but Shelby and I are closer and I feel like she and I are happier.  Finding balance is hard for me but it's getting easier b/c I'm letting go of MY control and the it ALL to Him...each day! I've made it a point, even though I'm NOT a morning person, to try to do my quiet time at 6am and if not, during naptime and I feel soooo refreshed and bathed in The Holy Spirit.
Here's pics from the conference with the wonderful ladies I went with....Sally Clarkson was so inspirational!

what a great group of ladies and inspiring company!! Thanks ladies and thank YOU Lord for these women in my life!

Well, in case you've not heard, Josh resigned as Worship Leader from our church and has joined the group Crosspoint.  He's the new lead singer for the group and they had their first singing this weekend in Plummerville and Morrilton, AR.  We definitely were reassured our decision was where God lead us! Wow!!
The convention they sang at Friday and Saturday was amazing and after their song on Saturday, which they were 3rd on the set list, they gave an invitation for those lead by the Lord and talk about Bathed in the still get goosebumps! The Lord was flooding the hearts of His people and Children this entire weekend!!!! totally amazing!!!
Plan on seeing them along with Heaven's Echoes and a local group, New Life Quartet, at our church March 10th and Crosspoint (the group Josh is in) March 11th as well where they'll lead worship...
Here's a couple videos of their practice last week before the singing.....Josh has been with them 3 weeks....the Lord is all over this!!!!!
(My hubby is the red head in case you didn't know..heheee)

This one is from the Mid Ark Convention we were at in Plummerville, AR Friday and Saturday...

Mom2Mom and being who He's called me to be

Today was our monthly Mom2Mom meeting and it was sooo great! We made coasters, fellow shipped and leaned more about the Proverbs 31 wife and woman of God from Mrs. Claus. She soooo stepped on my toes and inspired me to be that wife and mother God has called me to be.

Here is our craft from today at Mom2Mom. Tile coasters:

Cool huh?? It's a $0.16 tile, scrapbook papers, mod podge, and felt. Super fun and cool!!!

Tomorrow I leave on a trip with some wonderful ladies to the Mom Heart Conference and can't wait to hear Sally Clarkson speak in person!!! She's sooo inspiring and soft spirited. I can't wait to spend time with fellow mom's and friends. We are also at a 5 star hotel!! I'm gonna miss Shelby and josh sooo much but know this will benefit us all and make me a better momma and wife.
Please pray for us as we travel and as we leave our families and husbands for a weekend of study and being in the presence of fellow moms and God and His Word.

One last's my first attempt at making Cake Pops....I think they turned out ok!
