Back from Canada, but where do I start?

Well, actually I arrived home at 3:30 in the morning Wednesday (after driving for 17 and 1/2 hours straight with the kids) and have been trying to recover since. I got home the week before the wedding and was very busy helping get things ready, then Saturday was the wedding. My great grandmother was not doing well and I spent the following Tuesday afternoon sitting with her, holding her hand and praying for her etc...then she died that evening. The funeral was on Friday. All things went well and God provided grace for strength that certainly didn't come from physical rest. There were certainly some great things that happened but I'm not in the mood to recount everything yet. Next post.

I wanted to link to a couple of sites doing a great job keeping us who are not able to be in Brighton informed of what's been going on at Together On A Mission. Aaron and I had hopes of being there this year, but our house did not cooperate and we are sadly missing one of our favorite guys, someone we have never seen in real life. Actually, we aren't sad , we've been very excitable lately, maybe even a bit unruly hehe. God is using us where we are and for the first time we feel we have something to offer people that has power to change their lives forever. That would be the true gospel of grace, which I'm sure to be posting about very very soon.

But I digress...back to the links of interest.

First, Adrian Warnock has been doing a great job writing about the conference. I particularly enjoyed this video clip of some of the preachers, worship, and praying that's been going on at TOAM 2007 (though I didn't seem to catch any Rob Rufus...oh well...but it did have Terry Virgo!)

Second, my friend Andrew Fountain is also blogging TOAM 2007 with quite detailed accounts of the messages.

I'm pretty sure there are others to be found, and since Dan and Peter ( from Life on Wings, The Best is Yet to Come , and together at Spirit of God! )and others are also there, I expect they will have great testimonies when they get back. I look forward to hearing all about what God is doing over there!

Hey Julie! I didn't know you had a blog...very nice, I subscribed. :-) Anyway, the pictures are all on my Flickr account...and I forgot to put a link to them all on my blog. Whoops. :-) You can either check out all of the pictures from out trip, or view just the wedding ones. Enjoy!

Just as a warning, Flickr has been going very slow today...don't know why. So if the links don't work, try again later.

I guess I should also warn you to read at your risk. I'm pretty honest...but hopefully with grace. Always feel free to comment and disagree if you like. You're sure to disagree with some things on here hehe! By the way, I've been reading your blog off and on for a while now, found it through Steve and Katie's.
