Just a quick note to ask you to pray for me this weekend. I am attending the New Attitudes Conference hosted by Sovereign Grace Ministries in Louisville, KY. I am going with my good friend Laura and leaving Dan and the kids at home. Normally, I don't think I would be bothered by this, but I am just getting them back from my parents after a week away, and I'm not sure I'm ready to leave again!
Even so, I am looking forward to hearing the speakers, including CJ Mahaney, John Piper, Al Mohler, Mark Dever and Joshua Harris. It's not very often that we lay people get to hear such a line up!
Pray that my heart is open and I don't get caught up in the excitement of it all. I am easily distracted and I want to be quiet and contemplative. This is the first time I have been able to take an extended break and really have time alone with God. Pray that I don't squander the time. And if it isn't too selfish, pray that we are wise traveling, what with traffic and all, and the fact that we will probably be talking a lot!
AND, I get to see Gretchen! Can the weekend get any more exciting?!?!?!
