I have been so excited about this weekend for a long time. I am in Providence, Rhode Island for a Living Proof Live weekend. The last Living Proof Live weekend was back in May (remember - in the great town of Boone, NC). It has been too long to wait for another one. Our Living Proof Live team is like family, and I have missed everyone. So I am glad it is finally here.
And in an effort to keep a grateful heart, I am not going to mention the fact that construction has been going on in the rooms directly above me in this hotel, since 6:30am (5:30am to my central-time system). Literally drills and hammers. Constantly.
No, I will not mention that. Instead, I will mention that this is my favorite hotel chain in the world. And I get almost giddy when I know I am going to be staying in one. So I am willing to forgive them this time. Especially since I am staying in the "new wing," which just opened two days ago. I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel room where no one has ever stayed. It's shiny and clean.
I can't wait to worship tonight. And I can't wait to hear the teaching. The teacher at these things is pretty good. : >) I don't know why I get to do this with my life. I know I don't deserve it. But I am so thankful, humbled and honored. And the privilege of serving these ladies (and a few brave men) in worship is not lost on me.
And then...I get home on Saturday night...and then...I go to church on Sunday...and then...we go to THE BEACH on Monday! Yessssssssssssss. Cue Napoleon Dynamite dance in new shiny and clean hotel.
We are taking our summer vacation a little late this year. The kids don't start school until the day after Labor Day. I can't wait to be there. I love the beach.
I hope you have a great weekend, too!
