The conference started on a lovely note.
I had just arrived in my hotel room when I heard the phone ring.
“This is the front desk calling.” a voice said. “We have a delivery for Kathie MacPhee.”
“I’ll be right down” I answered. I got into the elevator and headed down the three flights to the lobby. As the elevator door opened, I caught sight of the front desk. There, sitting on the counter, was the most beautiful bouquet of long-stemmed red roses – a dozen gorgeous blooms. Nestled among them, was a sweet lovenote from my husband.
I’m still glowing! 🙂
The rest of the conference did not disappoint. It was a lavish banquet of …
- inspiring messages
- passionate worship
- sweet reunions with dear friends
- good food
- a candle lit hospitality room offering herbal teas, flavoured coffees and hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and peppermint bits
- and even complimentary hand massages!
These ladies know how to put on a good conference!
Did I mention how much we laughed?
Oh my …
The morning after the conference I woke up with two lines of a song that we sang running through my mind. They are still there – I’m captivated by them. Even as I type these words, my throat tightens and my eyes fill with tears.
“… Break my heart for what breaks Yours
Everything I am for Your Kingdom’s cause…”
It’s my prayer and the cry of my heart.
and yet I wonder – at what cost?
I know that in myself, I’m not able.
To be totally honest, I’m not always even willing.
I fail. I’m afraid.
Yet, I am calling out to the Lord,
I want this. It’s my deep desire.
I love the bridge in this song!
