I was challenged to dance on the battlefield and reminded that we are indeed in a battle in this world. Battle to be the best I can be as a child of God and to call others to the dance. Anita Renfroe (google her, because I don't know how to add that click here thingy)makes me laugh hysterically and the singing always makes me cry...that many women of faith singing their hearts out to God...powerful. I love seeing all of us there together for no other reason than to worship. We would be a force to be reckoned with if we could hold that power and share it when we get home.
We are not promised one more day...each one is a gift. I want to wake up every morning and rip that gift open with the abandon of a child...well, I really still do open gifts like that...I can't wait to see what it is...and the gifts that God gives are ever so much better than the best gifts given here...
But I fight my feelings of unworthiness all the time...I know...I shouldn't...and I'm working on it...
So, that was the conference and here's San Antonio:
Good morning! While we were there it rained some of each day, after a 4 month or so drought,
and they had a little tornado that stacked up about 19 mail trucks. We couldn't even complain about the rain
because they so needed it and it was still warm, if not hot, outside. We walked everywhere.
Our hotel used to be First Alamo Bank...can you see the Alamo? And I just have to say that my
history teacher was not clear enough on the whole Alamo thing...we didn't win!
Just goes to show the power of believing in a cause and being willing to stand up...
I didn't know they lost, but I knew they were courageous to the end...heroes!
The River Walk....amazing. We took a night time boat ride, but the little
camera just can't do night photos! Sorry.
We went to the Marketplace and ate at Mi Tierra, because Tanna told me about the tortilla soup!
She left a good bit of information out....while there....
...we got serenaded...
...and amazed by the decorations! Yikes.
Hey! What's wrong with this building?
And speaking of building...while I was away the roofing fairies were hard at work.
They might prefer being called roofing worker bees, but it seemed kind of magical
to go away and come back to a whole new look on the house.
We're going to need lights soon, since they covered up most of the sky light we used to have.
While the worker bees were working today, I mowed and took the garden fencing down. I want to move it next year. As I was taking it down, I found this wonder....and felt bad about messing up the web....
Unwrapping the gift of this day...gratitude for my ever wonderful husband and his worker bees...amazement at the wonders you can find in the garden fence...and joy at being home. Oh, and anticipation for a fun time at Zumba! Pretty good gift, huh?
