My Mind is Racing

I have to pack up my suitcase, make sure my shirt is ironed, wash one last item...don't forget toothpaste and shampoo.

Tuesday morning, I'll be on the road to Illinois. I'm heading off to a wonderful writer's conference for the week. I'm a little nervous. About meeting with editors. And leaving the kids for so long.

My better half can handle everything while I'm gone, but I'm not sure if I can handle being away so long. *Insert pitiful sigh*

Preparing for the conference would be enough to make my mind race, but there's a few other things racing around up there too. Children's Ministry visions, brochures, re-decorating....VBS planning, recruiting, organizing...End of school year parties, birthdays, cleaning up the house, sending off papers for my license, paying bills...

And, I almost forgot, I have a job interview tomorrow too!

So, if you think of me, pray for me this week. There will most likely be silence from this mumbling mommymonk (for a WHOLE week!) since I will be soaking up other people's words. Don't worry, I'll come back next Monday and be babbling away just like usual :)

Oh you mentioned that "RECRUITING" word! Yeck!!! This will be starting up for me in earnest very soon! Oh how (do I dare say it) I hate recruiting!!!!! Have a great time at your conference! Soak away!

Have a great time at the conference and really enjoy your time away from the kids. They will be fine! Last fall I went to my parents' by myself for a weekend - first time in many years! It felt weird but great!

Lord, go before my friend. I pray for favor in her job interview. Rest and refreshment at her conference, and peace as prepares to go.

Watch over her household while she is gone, pour out your blessing on Heather like never before!

In Jesus name, Amen.

Love you♥
