What a Weekend!!!
What an amazing weekend! There was incredible worship lead by David Crowder Band, amazing classes with all the big names in ministry, and loads of free resources and t-shirts. But the best part of it all was spending time with some of my best friends ever!!! On Saturday, my birthday, we took a little hiatus from the YS Convention and went to San Francisco! It was so much fun; the town is great, full of huge hills which Neena was excited about, as well as a Pier 1 too! (Just for you Josh and John). We found the Golden Gate Bridge twice, although the first one was really the Bay Bridge. The Golden Gate bridge red and breaking through the fog looked amazing. We walked around Pier 39 and ate dinner at Bubba Gump’s Shrimp place, which the food wasn’t that great but the view was incredible, overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. The weekend was completely rejuvenating and I could not have prayed for or imaged a better weekend (unless Traci could have been there), praise to our Lord. I do have to admit that I even cried when we finally left Josh and Neena at the airport. It is always so amazing how you can be away from your friends for months at a time and you each have completely different lives even, but the unity and love that bounds together in Christ is unlike any friendship I have ever had and the instant you are together again the time away from one another is simply a dream. So to my best friends from college Natalie, Traci, and Neena (and our new addition to the group; Jessica) love you tons and I could never tell you how great you are to me.
