She is meeting friends from youth group at church at 2:30 am (I know!!) to head to the airport. They are traveling to Louisville, KY for our denomination's once-every-three-years conference for thousands of high schoolers called LIFE. LIFE is something we've heard about many times over the years...and now my little girl is old enough to attend!
Today she read to me her choices of seminars from the long list of options, and I choked up. One, because I'm overjoyed that she has such a wonderful opportunity to learn about such fantastic topics. And two, because she was making great choices that show some thought and care on her part--rather than choosing what sounded the most entertaining or fun. She sounded just a bit mature at that moment.
I am praying that God will speak to her heart this week. I am praying she listens. I am praying that her faith deepens and her relationship with God becomes even more intimate and real to her. I pray she is a sponge who soaks up the whole thing.
I don't know what He has planned. I'm pretty sure it's good, though. It's Big-G-Good.
Oh, and along with Hawk Nelson, Kutless and other cool musicians she is going to hear this guy. I encourage you to take a few minutes and see what this dude can do with an acoustic guitar.
That was lovely, but now I need to go and pretend she needs my help packing.
Unwrapping this moment with my growing-up girl with emily at chatting at the sky, cause she wrote about high school girls today too.
