sigh of relief...

...for now at least. I've been asked to speak to a small group of women at a retreat this coming Saturday. I've been sweating what I'm going to say (have been given 1/2 an hour's time to fill!), and think I've finally finished my notes. Whew! Yet another reason I haven't been posting much of late. I'm actually very excited to attend...the topic of the retreat is the story of Mary and Martha, and finding balance between prayer and work. It should be a wonderful day.
I recieved a letter in the mail yesterday from one of the women organizing the retreat, and she mentioned there are 150 women registered thus far! 150??!! Okay, I'm sweating again...

If you think to pray for me on Saturday morning, that'd be great! Asking for the Holy Spirit to work through me, give me confidence to speak to such a large group, and to give all glory to Him through the message I share. He is Good! (and I'm incredibly nervous! What was I thinking, saying "yes" again?!) Prayers, please.

We'll be praying for you; the women in attendance are in for a treat! Thanks, to you and John, for sharing your grace and humility and God's goodness with so many others, this weekend, and always! Your insights will be appreciated and I wish I could be there!
