I. Am. So. Excited. I. Can. Hardly. Stand. It. There will be some very fun things that you will not want to miss. Plus, you’ll get to learn about some amazing women who make things and write things and all that jazz. So stay tuned and I’ll give you more information via my blog and via twitter (@cindybeall). Have a wonderful day!
Do you remember where you were at midnight on January 1, 2000? I was waiting for the world to implode with my bottled water and non-perishable items like ravioli and Ritz crackers. Not really. And here we are, ten years later. I’m excited about 2010. I feel a sense of expectation on the horizon. New opportunities are just around the corner. Awesome experiences await for our family as we trust more and more in our Risen Savior. I can feel it. Chris and I are participating in a 21-day Daniel Fast during this month. Our pastor, Craig Groeschel, has asked the LifeChurch.tv staff to fast from food in some way. At first, I was hesitant because it would be inconvenient and not very enjoyable. Because I like my coffee and Diet Dr. Pepper. But on the Daniel Fast, I won’t be having my coffee and Diet Dr. Pepper. But, if I’ve learned one thing about sacrifice from my pastor, it’s this: It’s giving up something you love for something you love more. I believe God is calling Chris and me to do this. I didn’t feel guilted or bullied into it. No, it was a gentle, motivating, spiritual nudge and prodding by the Holy Spirit. And I’m actually looking forward to denying my flesh by focusing on feeding my spirit. On a lighter side, I am doing something fun the week of January 25th. I’m doing my first ever giveaway.
