A Blessed Weekend Ahead


Some of you may remember that two years ago, the year that Asher died, I was blessed with an AMAZING group of friends via this blog and we all got together in Atlanta in 2008 to go to the Deeper Still Conference. It was such an amazing weekend and did so much for my broken heart.

WELL...despite a TON of obstacles, we are getting together again in just two short days. I will have the opportunity to spend the weekend with other moms who are grieving and raising great kids all at the same time. Each of these moms has been blessed with a baby since the loss of their last child and so there will be 8 moms and 8 babies! Can you imagine the fun!? :)

Anyway, I am very excited but also very nervous. I have only flown one other time (to see them in Atlanta) and have NEVER flown with a baby and Hope is shall we say, um, slightly needy. I know that God's hand is in this as seriously SO many obstacles have been overcome for this to happen. He has literally moved mountains and I am so excited to see what He has in store for the weekend. I would covet your prayers for safe travel and a blessed weekend! :)

Praying! Don't worry about the flight. I just brought stinkers when we flew with my two, and a new babydoll. I flew with my Sammy who was 3yr4m, and Sophia who was 19months by myself to florida. I was anxious about it but God made all things work well and HE alwayd does!!! Hugs! And can't wait to hear about your glorious trip
