Yes, I did get to go away for the weekend.
Yes, I did have a good time.
For my birthday my hubby got me a ticket to the Mom's Heart Conference, which is exactly what I wanted. Then with Christmas , my birthday, my hubbies birthday happening right before the conference I was not sure that I would be able to spend the night, which would have been ok but not as much fun. Right as I was preparing my heart to possibly not be able to stay....I got a birthday present from my dear friend Anastasia, my hotel room paid for the conference :)
What a great birthday!!
Well, I went to the conference this weekend. I had a great time. I heard God tell me so many things so many I can't even list them all here. However, the one thing that I came home with is.....
That I need to be faithful with the children, all the children, that God has given me.
I need to be raising little warriors for Christ.
I want to finish "WELL" this mission field call "Motherhood". I want the Livingston kids to make a difference in this world for eternity. I want my grandchildren and great grandchildren to make a difference in this world for eternity. In order for this to happen I need to pour my heart and soul into my children.
It takes a lot of energy and patience to be a good mom but there is nothing I want more than when I get to heaven for God to tell me "Well done good and faithful mom of Jelissa, Kristie, Lakeisha, Darius, and Cynthia and because of your faithfulness your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren....will be here too."
I love my kids so much. I love being their mom, and this is the best job in the world!!
