Amanda, our wonderful Blog Queen, had let us know earlier that there would be about 500 of us, and as you all know, that is really a “small group” for a Bethie event! I loved the intimacy and focus of the Siestas that attended. The like-mindedness of all of us memorizing scripture for one year together was palatable in that place. It was sweet to see Beth get to be up close and love on the siestas – something she doesn’t get to do in an arena setting. It was like a family reunion!
I love to make lists, and this list is alliterative. It covers so many of the wonderful blessings from this past weekend. Nothing.Disappointed. Nothing!
- Beautiful Beth
- Amazing Amanda
- More Master’s Degrees Melissa
- Wonderful Worship by Terrific Travis
- Lovely LPM Staff
- Hospitable Houston
- Georgia Girls
- Sweet Siestas
- Warm Weather
- Verified Verses
- Fantastic Food
But the list doesn’t share details and pictures, so I would love to oblige with that now…
We had a great flight to Houston from the ATL and I knew we were off to a great start as Emmy was ALREADY watching a DVD of Beth on our way there to see Beth. Gotta love that! I took this picture from my seat right behind her on the plane!
The Georgia girls started the morning early with some pampering at the spa within the Omni Hotel. Facials, sauna, whirlpool, the works! It had been a very long time since I enjoyed that type of pampering. Thank you sweet Deborah for blessing me with that gift!
Friday afternoon I was so happy to see our wonderful worship leader, Travis in the lobby at the Omni. I love his musical gifts, but I love his heart of worship more. Always gracious, he kindly took time for pictures and conversation with many of us. Thank you Travis Cottrell for being used mightily to bless this Baptist “music minister’s wife!”
