Georgia On My Mind

I had such an amazing time in Georgia this weekend. I can TOTALLY see why those Georgia folk love their state. First of all, it’s beautiful. Not to mention the people and their hospitable selves. Did I say how beautiful it was? My friend, Kim Heinecke, traveled with me and spoke to the women on Saturday. She’s a jewel and stole their hearts for sure. And she’s an outstanding Bible teacher. I really love her and appreciate that she pushed me in the Atlanta airport all the way to baggage claim while I was in a clunker of a wheelchair. And no, we didn’t take the train. Please don’t ask. Not our best traveling moment. I did tip her $5 though.  I love the things God did while we were there. One of those was a young woman who came from two hours away after finding out about our being there just three days before. “You are here for me, I’m certain,” she said.  Another woman lived nearby and heard I’d be in the area through my website. She shared her story in tears to me and said that God gave her such hope through my story. I am honored to have been invited to also speak Sunday morning to the congregation at Eagles Way even with crutches while sitting in a director’s chair. It was my first “pulpit” on a Sunday morning…an honor I took very seriously. Thank you, Pastor Buren, for that.  God is good and I’m excited to speak again in February. Until then, I’ll be getting the leg healed up so that I can walk again!

  2. Praise be to God! He is so good to use you like this and I know every last soul was blessed by it. Way to go, my friend!

  6. I’ve been randomly coming on your site and live in ga how did I just miss the opportunity to hear you talk… Well I know God is in this ministry and I’ve been blessed alone by reading some of your posts.

  7. Cindy, thanks so much to you and Kim for coming to speak to us! I love the way you both use humor and you had me cracking up! My friend, Lynn, bought me your book and I can’t wait to read it. Thank you for sharing your story and for sharing scriptures I really need. Please come back and see us again soon!

  8. Dear Cindy,

    Thank you so very much for blessing us last week-end. I am the “grandmother” who sat behind you in church on Sunday.

    I almost didn’t go to the conference because my husband passed away recently and I was afraid it would be too painful to hear about marriage. But Holy Spirit wooed me, and you confirmed what God has been telling me – there is restoration in all things.

    God bless you for your faithfulness to Him. Hoping you return to Georgia some day.

  9. Seriously some of the nicest people on the planet. And girl, I’d push you all the way to the last terminal if I had it to do again. (But I’d be wearing better shoes…)

    I agree w the Pastor about your message. It was outstanding.
