Just A Couple of Things

First, I probably won't be blogging much in the next couple of weeks. I am using all my spare time to get ready for the SheSpeaks conference. It is suddenly coming TOO soon - and I am beginning to panic. If you think of it, please pray for me. About the flying, about going alone, about what is going to happen there. And most of all that I would have a peace about my book proposal. The whole thing is exciting but in the last couple of days I have felt real doubts and fears about what I am doing. Who am I to think I could even attempt to write a book? I don't want to have these negative thoughts/feelings. And there is only One that I know of who can give me that peace that passes all understanding. So if you have a moment, please ask Him to share just a tiny portion of that peace with me over the next ten days or so. I'm thinking I could really use some of it right about now!

Also, I would encourage you if you haven't been already, to read Bev's posts this week over at Scratchin' the Surface. She is working her way each day through what she believes and why. She is a gifted writer and her posts have been nothing short of brilliant. She is encouraging lots of comments - whether you are in agreement with her or not. She just asks that we keep it all respectful. I think it is an awesome idea. We should all write out what we believe and why we believe it. I intend to do it myself, after the conference. I'm not sure I will be posting it - I just think it's a good idea to write it all out so we are solid in what we believe. I just think she is so brave and smart to be doing such a thing. You will really be missing out if you don't go read it. Now. Today.

So until later, have blessed days. God is good. All the time.

Your going to North Carolina? Geez....its a good thing you have this blog, otherwise I might not know a thing about you. Sad I think, considering your my sister! :)

Oh, my friend, you will be fine. Just fine. You said it yourself, God is good ... all the time.

Shalom ... peace ... do you know what shalom means? It is a twofold peace. One part is our responsibility to be in obedience to God. And in so much as we are in obedience, trusting that He will work everything for HIS good result.

Peace be with you.

Shalom.

I have been keeping up with Bev's amazing journey through the Apostle's Creed. She is indeed a gifted writer, a phenomenal thinker, a wonderful Christian lady. I think she should write a book, too!

I know you will have a wonderful time - I am envious. I pray the flight will go well - I don't fear flights, I just don't enjoy the crampedness with my long legs and claustrophobia. I can hardly wait to hear all about the conference.

What do you mean, "who am I to think I can write a book?" ? Who are you to think you can't write a book? You can do ANYTHING you put your mind to.

Your trip sounds so exciting, Robin! Everything will go just fine. It's only natural to have cold feet before a big event -- your book will turn out great! I believe in you:) Looking forward to a full report when you get back.

I can't wait to hear all about the conference when you return. And I'd like to go on record right now, that I'd like an autographed copy of your book. Not a doubt in my mind you can do this.

My sister's current series, using The Apostles' Creed as the guideline, is amazing. She is a gifted writer and I can only wish I could organize my thoughts as well as she does.

Hello! I like your blog. What a precious grandson!! I am also going to She Speaks and this must be about the time that the enemy starts whispering, "who do we think we are?" he gives the term sweet nothings a new meaning because it's a bunch of lies! The bible tells us that when we are weak, He is strong and that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!

Psalm 138:8(NIV) The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever, do not abandon the works of your hands.

Hi Robin, I am a fellow friend in panic mode. Life is so busy, that I haven't thought one second about leaving for the conference in 5 days. I will pray for you and you be sure to pray for me. Now that I see your picture on your blog, I will have to look for you. I'm sure you will do great!
