We were crunched for time, but I just had to stop on the gorgeous scenic overlook on Afton Mountain for a quick picture. I am not sure if this is "peak" weekend, but Friday was simply golden and gorgeous in Virginia. To see David so healthy and with a full head of hair with those gorgeous mountains in the background overwhelmed me. My heart was so full. So many times we have crossed that mountain going to and from chemo when he was sick or asleep and yesterday I was so grateful to our God.
The other amaing blessing of this weekend was the women's conference I attended today. I had been asked months ago to speak and I accepted with a knot in my stomach. I do not feel like I am a good speaker but I will gladly go out of my comfort zone and speak to brag on my Jesus. He has done a mighty work in our lives through David and he continues to bless us with His peace as we face the future.
Not only was the lunch amazing (you know it is good if I felt compelled to whip out my iphone and take a picture), but the church was welcoming, the ladies were encouraging and kind, and the other speakers wowed me. I was scheduled to speak last and the knot in my stomach got bigger and bigger after each speaker. The speakers before me were awesome and they could sing-I barely had a voice due to allergies, a frog in my throat, and my pantyhose were not cooperating! I was starting to feel insecure and inadquate until God reminded me that His grace is sufficient. I held onto the podium for dear life and shared with those kind women how our God used David and his life to show me His glory. It was an awesome day!
I have spent the evening in the kitchen cooking with my kiddos for some more special events going on tomorrow. My heart is so thankful and blessed. Our God is truly the Good Shepherd.
