Is anyone else praying this week goes by quickly? Jon is in Chicago for the Story Conference and while I'm thrilled for him (I really am), we miss him! Saturday afternoon can't get here fast enough!

And I have to give credit where credit is due. I got the following prayer from Beth Moore's Living Proof Ministries Blog and I thought it was fantastic. It's the prayer of commissioning she has women do at the end of her simulcast in pairs and I wanted to share it because it's THAT good. It reminds me of a quote from this morning's bible study: "choose your travel companions wisely".

My Dear Sister,

Your God has called you

To use that mouth of yours

For His great glory.

Don’t just add to the noise.

Become a real woman

Who opens her mouth with wisdom.

God wants the Law of Kindness

On your tongue

And the love of Christ

In your heart.

Never forget:

Kindness is not a weakness!

When you’re wearing down

Head to Christ and His people

And let them build you back up.

Always remember:

His yoke is KIND.

Make sure

It’s the only yoke you wear.

It’s time to go our separate ways

But we’ll all meet up again

At the glorious epiphany of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Until then,

Let the One who led you here

Lead you on with cords of kindness.

Now, get out there

And build a welcoming fire

In a cold world.

Live by the Law of Kindness!

Katie my dear,
We are praying against each other, ha!!! B and I are having a lot of fun together, he's my little BFF. I'm so glad I like him now! (just kidding, sort of. . . ).

I hope tomorrow goes SO so so well. I'm praying for you (and Charlotte!).
