so much to say

I went to an amazing women's retreat this past weekend.  it was fabulous.  seriously amazing.  I've been to lots of retreats/conferences/etc. and this one was my favorite so far.  it was the type that sets you on fire... and the blaze isn't one that a wee trial can just snuff out either... it's a bazin' still! 
the topic of the retreat was "words".  the verse of the retreat was "...for out of the abundance of the heart, your mouth speaks."  there were many many MANY other verses too.  many. 
the biggest thing I learned was how proud I am.
sometimes our mouth just spews.  other times it shouts in anger.  some time it just goes along with every one elses.  but the truth is, not everything is necessary and we need to try and tame our tongues.  we need to bridle our big mouths.  and when we mess up... we need to confess and repent. 

I love the way God works... there were lots of verses that came from that good ol' book of james that I just posted about.  God is working in me.  He is alive in my life and I love Him!!!!!

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Cor. 10:31
