In the morning my friends and I will board a plane bound for Orlando and the Gospel Coalition’s Women’s Conference! Woo hoo! I’ve spent most of the day packing and making such preparations as is necessary when the mom will be out of town for four nights. I think I’m ready. Surely I must be, good grief I have to be after all this! I do know at the very least I have a change of clothes, deodorant, a moleskine journal, and three books on the kindle app on my iPad. What more do I need? 🙂
Once I found a few minutes to sit down and scroll through my Twitter feed, I read another blogger’s post reflecting on what she learned at the last conference two years ago. Inspired, I glanced over some of my own posts about it. As I read and remembered, I, of course, grew even more excited about the incredible teaching we will receive as well as the fun and fellowship we will enjoy hanging out with friends and fellow bloggers. It’s going to be a blast!
Some of y’all may remember that I blogged my notes from the conference sessions last time. I do not plan to do so this year. But, never fear, the conference will be live streamed and after the conference concludes most of the sessions will eventually be available online. You can click here to watch the live feed. You can also follow the hashtag #TGCW14 for conference related tweets.
True confessions: there was something else I noted about those posts from two years ago, namely how easily I seemed to write and how passionate I was about the things of the Lord. It occurs to me they are perhaps related, the passion and the writing.
I miss that about me.
I am hoping to find both again. This weekend perhaps. However, I do know this, whether or not the writing comes easy, whether or not the emotions run high and happy, the Lord is good, His Word is true, and His gospel is my only hope. Yes and amen.
