Thank you ladies of Section 13!

Dear Ladies,

We just came away from our PenFlorida Breakaway conference at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Conference Center in Sarasota at Siesta Key. Our time away was amazing and so refreshing!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each of you for all your hard work in promoting the Breakaway! Because of your efforts our section had the most ladies at the conference representing section 13.

Marsha Woolley called me last Friday to tell me that I had won the grand prize! I was so surprised as I really didn't know or remember what the prize was! I was blessed with a beautiful Suite! It was huge and so very nice! This was an especially blessed and wonderful time for me as I know for all of you!

This year is the first time my husband, Keith and I in our years of ministry, that we have really struggled in so many ways. I'm not going to take the time to go through it all, but God knows. I was desperate to have some time away, because of extenuating circumstances beyond our control with my father-in-law's illness, we were unable to take a vacation, but needed to go visit him instead. In fact, my husband flew out to be with him again this weekend as he's doing poorly and not expected to make it much longer.

In September, our church held special services called "Breakthrough". On Wednesday evening, Marsha Woolley, came and ministered so beautifully to our people. I was on the piano as usual for altar ministry and she came to me and prophesied over me that God was going to give me a vacation that I and my husband could complete. She said, that God was going to give me some "softer things" to enjoy and that it would be effortless! To be honest, I though to myself that was great, but really didn't know how that would come to pass anytime soon.

Well, I'm a little slow....but it dawned on me that God was bringing this to past by allowing me to enjoy this time away and stay in a beautiful suite on the top floor with an incredible view of the water and downtown area with special little perks included!

So, thank you ladies! For your support, love, and well wishes! I don't feel I'm worthy of this, but in spite of myself He blessed me anyway and I appreciate you ladies for making this possible.

The weekend was refreshing, the worship intense! I danced all over the place! My calves are screaming today, but it was so worth it! was so sweet! I feel now God has given what's needed to take me through this season. God is good!

It was so good to see my sisters in the Lord and renewing friendships with ladies I've made over the years! Conferences are a great place to go and getaway!

On another note, I'd like to remind you of our section event next Saturday, November 7th with another awesome woman of God, Pastor Deanna Shrodes from Tampa. This event will begin with registration and breakfast at 9:00 am and the session will begin at 10:00 am. This will be held at Harvest Chapel Christian Center in Bradenton. Please call by next week for a count so we know how many to plan for! You may reach me at the office at 941-423-1939.

See you Saturday!

Love & Hugs,

Desert Song by Hillsong

This Is Our God
Desert Song-VERSE 1-
This is my prayer in the desert,
When all that's within me feels dry,
This is my prayer in my hunger and need,
My God is the God who provides,

And this is my prayer in the fire,
In weakness, or trial, or pain,
There is a faith proved more worth than gold,
So refine me Lord through the flame,

I will bring praise,
I will bring praise,
No weapon formed against me shall remain,
I will rejoice, I will declare,
God is my victory and He is here,

[ Hillsong Lyrics are found on ]
This is my prayer in the battle,
When triumph is still on its way,
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ,
So firm on his promise I'll stand,

(repeat Chorus)

All of my life, in every season,
You are still God,
I have a reason to sing,
I have a reason to worship,

(repeat Chorus)

And this is my prayer in the harvest,
When favour and providence flow,
I know I'm filled to be emptied again,
The seed I receive I will sow

Feeling like Aqua

Hi Everyone! This spring season I've noticed everywhere I go the stores are decorating with teal, aqua and pretty greens.  March mark...
