The Time WAS Relevant

Returned safely, Thank you Lord, from Relevant. I won't be able to express with words the inpact of these last four days have on my life. Hearing such Godly women speak, sharing, crying, laughing and praying with me, life changing.

On the 3 1/2 hour ride home. I made mental notes of the changes that will be happening in my home, with my children, my walk with God, my relationship with my husband, my scheduling, my time on the computer, my relationships, my everything! So many awesome women in 1 place, such energy, such great joy it brought me.

I was so nervous to be away from my family, since being away ment I could not tuck the kids in, sit at night with my husband and share our day together...would the house run "according to Melissa's schedule"..lol I will admit, there were blinks of an eye moments that I missed the kids, the husband, the schedule, the home, but mostly I was missing my relationship with God. I went to Relevant thinking it was a Christian Women's Blogging conference, I left knowing it was a Women's Retreat. I can't thank everyone enough for all the stories, moments and love that was swirling around the place. I could even feel the love from the Sheraton Staff members.

I have so many books to read now...so many "new friends" to keep in touch with...so many new blogs to review! I can only pray that Relevant will happen again in another year and I will be able to attend!

On my way home, thinking how I was going to turn my life back into a service life for God, this sunrise guided my way back to NY.

I didn't meet you at Relevant but I too had an amazing time. I've found it difficult to put words together and I think that is okay.

I loved Angie's book - I've had it for a long time. You're right about the tissues!

I read Serena's book in a day - wow. What a testimony! I can't stop thinking about that book and I wish I had a whole case of them so I could share them with everyone. I think it's THAT good of a book.

Just wanted to say hi. :)
