Women of Faith - Here we come!

I probably won't be able to post much this weekend or next week. I'm headed to Women of Faith in Atlanta on Friday and Saturday and to CLASS on Sunday through Wednesday. I'm excited to see what God has planned. I am in desperate need of some spiritual renewal ladies and I am going expectant.

I'm also excited to spend time with some new friends and some old!
Carol and I are headed out tomorrow and will meet Janet and the other Carol at the conference. Then on Sunday, I will pick up Melissa at the airport to head to Canton for CLASS.
I know we will have a blast. I'm excited to meet Melissa in person after getting to know her through the blogging world.

I'm so excited to be attending WOF again this year. I actually had decided not to go because of finances and CLASS being right after. I didn't want to be gone from the kids that long. I was whining and complaining about not attending because it would have been the first year in the last six years I wouldn't be there. Then, I got a phone call from Carol D.... she had four tickets and a hotel... was I interested in attending? Greg said go. I was blown away. God knew I needed this time and He provided a way. Isn't He awesome that way! 

I will post TSMS on Saturday and I'm over at Faith Lifts on Monday. Then, I will share all of my wonderful pictures and stories about my fabulous weekend when I return :-)

Please pray for Spencer to not have any seizures while I'm away. (By the way... we saw the doctor yesterday and he increased his medication and put him on one new med. We also started the process to get tested to see if he is a candidate for brain surgery.  I will keep you all posted as we find out more.) Also please pray for Greg since he will have the children all weekend. He's a pro, so I'm not worried. I'm a little upset that I'm missing Mary Lyndsey's actual birthday. It's on Monday. I can't believe she is going to be 5! Of course she has snack for her preschool class on her birthday and class pictures... both while I'm away. You can add her hair to your prayer list too... that is the one thing daddy is not great at doing. I can't wait to see what these pics will turn out like :-) She and Spencer are excited because GrandDee and GrandJudy are coming to stay with them this weekend too. I know they will be spoiled when I return. 

Anyway, thanks for all of your emails and prayers about Spencer. Please continue to lift him up in prayer. See you Saturday at TSMS. In the meantime... here's a look at where I'll be this weekend!

Sweet Blessings,
Amy

I think it's great that you are considering the brain surgery for Spencer and that they have begun testing for it. This is actually something I've been praying about for you. With the increased number of seizures I've been praying that this surgery would benefit him a great deal.

You all are strong and though this surgery is a scary thing...God will get you through.

Here's to praying that Spencer is a great candidate for it!!

Love ya, Cheri
