So many wonderful things

How could a few days be filled with so many wonderful things?

Incredible hospitality

Delicious Dining

Old Friends

New Friends Mary Ellen, I was going to say how cool it was to meet you and feel an instant friendship. But then you had to go and do the whole picture/video thing. So now you're dead meat. Only I can't think of anything to do to you. So I just stole some pictures off your blog.Quiet time alone at the Intercoastal waterway
(right by where I stayed)
Beautiful Beach (Beautiful friendship)

....and one serious sunburn!

I'm thankful for the chance to visit Hobe Sound Church services for the first time, time to be with some of the most wonderful friends a person could want, time to be alone and sleep (I was amazed at how fast I can get ready w/o kids!). I have a super-sized bottle of aloe that will hopefully bring soon relief from the remains of the Florida sun.
I also had a little adventure of being stranded in Atlanta for the night along with several hundred angry travelers. Subject for another blog, if I get to it.
Thank you, Sis. Vernon for calling me. You are one of my heroes!
Thank you, P.D. and Sherry - for everything. I have about a hundred funny, deep, meaningful and meaningless conversations replaying in my head.

I'm so glad you had a few days to relax and have fun! You deserve it!!!
Mary Ellen said…
Ok, first of all...thanks for the better picture of those baby blues, I swapped your picture (zooming in on just the eyes) for mine.

Second of all, if you don't mind posting, on your own blog I might add, the picture of you looking rather lobster like than you can't mind my nice picture of you speaking!!!!

Third of all, after spending the winter up north one MUST wear sunblock when at the beach - especially during the spring.

Fourth of all (I think I've just coined a few phrases here) when you become as famous as Nancy Leigh DeMoss as a women's retreat speaker, thanks to the plug I gave you on my blog - oh so sincerely - I want my name mentioned in gratitude at the start of every conference. "-)

Fifth of all - for anyone who would like to see the video that Sarah is talking is the link...

Wishing with all my heart that Lizzy and I could have been there. Glad it went so well.
Lenita said…
Sarah...just wanted to say how much I enjoyed getting to know you a little better at the ladies retreat. It would have been great if there was more time to build friendships...but now we have that to look forward to.
Thanks for sharing your heart...God used you in a wonderful way!!
I agree w/my son Travis (comment above) that you have an amazing voice. What a blessing you are!!
Now just don't forget to feed Spencer on those 2 days..we don't want you to have to post about your dog dying from starvation!! ha!!
God bless....stay in touch!!

Oh, how I needed to be at this ladies retreat! I did see the video - it's great. I would buy the whole set of DVDs if they were available. Was it videoed? Anyway...Sarah, you're awesome. I'm glad we're friends and that God allowed our paths to run together for a couple years, working together in God's kingdom. I'll always treasure our friendship.
Carrie said…
Hmm. Sounds like something I should have been at!

Sarah, you look downright painful. I'm sure it was worth every fried skin cell, though! ;)
Bobbie said…
Glad you made it home safe. I'm sure you were awesome. I loved the last devotion you gave us at WOW. I would have loved to have been there.
Mary Ellen - I can see that I've certainly met my match where words are concerned! What can I say?

I'd like to borrow your MEV next time I speak. It think it would have some delightful insights. I'm sitting here sheepishly peeling and wondering what in the WORLD I was thinking!

Seriously, thank you for the overwhelming amount of kind words. I was serious about the instant friendship thing. I think we could talk together for several hours without taking a breath.

Your delightful video has encouraged me to get back to Weight Watchers and go back to speach therapy (which was obviously unsuccessful the first time) for my dorky lisp. What are friends for, but to show our true selves to us and about a million other people?

I really hope we run into each other again some day.
Travis - Thanks for commenting! Your melon/berry green tea was brilliant! Enjoyed your blogs, too.

Lenita - It was great getting to know you and share some laughs.

I feel like I've been given a whole chocolate-box-full of new friends!
Charity said…

I can't believe I missed your Hobe Sound debut by just a few days! I shouldn't be surprised that you do public speaking; I've just seen you exclusively as a mom for all of our relationship. Good for you! I'm sure it was absolutely fabulous!
Scott and Libby said…
Miss Sarah,
I'm so glad you came to speak at our retreat. It was a joy to get to know you a little. I love your pictures too by the way. Your kids are adorable, and your new Florida facial really brings out your blue eyes. Thank you tons for singing for us while you were here. You are blessed with a beautiful voice that really blesses folks.

I'm sure that Mary's favorite book of the new MEV bible has to have some refrence to "poop" stories along with that blond haired, freckle faced women thing.

Libby Sutherland
Okay, Libby, you've made me laugh out loud. You know me.....if it's got poop stories, I'm there!

We all know she has the story to top them all!
