Here I sit in Nashville, Tennessee.... a hotel room and I haven't slept a wink. It's 3:15 in the morning and all I can think about is how great the conference was last night at the Beth Moore Living Proof Life Event for Minister's Wives. Travis and the team led in anointed praise and worship of Almighty God.....whew.....just about enough to live on for quite a while. And Beth was so inspiring that I can't even turn off my mind long enough to get a wink of sleep. I just keep thinking about all that she said and how much closer to the Lord I want to be. He is so faithful. I wish I was more faithful to Him. I've been to the mountain top and I don't want to ever go back to living in a pit. And, for that matter, I don't want any of my friends or family to ever live in a pit again. The secret is to allow the Lord to be our # 1. No other other other people or things above Him. When we are desperate enough for Him that we will go to Him to meet our needs instead of other people, then we will feel the satisfaction we are longing for.

Beth asked us to come up with six words that would describe our life before we met Christ. She assigned it as homework. I have to come up with something before 8:30 this morning....yikes...that's only 5 more hours!!!! What do you think? Here are a few I've come up with but I'm not sold on any of them.

Went to church, even before born.
Saved at seven, called at seventeen.
Went to church, every time open.
Raised in a Christian home, PTL!

Anyone out there got any suggestions for me of something a little more snappy?
