Coming Home

I'm just sitting in the Calgary airport, waiting to board my plane for London, Ontario. It's so great to be going home. Yesterday I was busying myself all day:
- cleaning
- packing
- getting Joop ready
- throwing out all my trash
- saying Good-bye

Mostly, I was trying to keep myself from going stir-crazy waiting to head home. I'm so excited to get back and see all the people I love in Ontario (and even a few that aren't from Ontario, but will be there at the same time, lol). I'm so excited!! And one of my very best friends is getting married :) I'm so happy that I can be there for her special day too.

This is a little something I'm bringing home with me too. My good friend has been waiting quite a while for this gift and I finally will get a chance to see her and show it off! YAY!

It's gonna be a busy couple of weeks!! CAN'T WAIT!!!

Everlasting Love

"For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only son, that whoever
believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16

Best. Weekend. Ever. True story. This weekend included watching chuck wagon racing (pictures to follow!), rollercoasters, amazing worship music, youth from across Alberta being positively impacted, roadtriping, and hanging out with good friends. What more could you ask for?!

YC (youth conference) Alberta is an event where youth from across the province, and neighbouring provinces, come together in fellowship. Thousands of youth gathered to praise God and learn from the wise speakers. A man named Reggie Dabbs spoke about being created to have a personal and loving relationship with God. He spoke straight to everyone's hearts when you asked people to stretch out their shame, pain, frustrations, hands to God because he wants to carry our burdens. He spoke about it not being our fault that our relationships fail, that people were abused, that people's parents fight, that people's family's are broken, that we aren't strong enough to handle what's thrown at us. God wants to love and protect us, but we have to let Him in and accept His love. It was very impactful, and most nights ended with me praying (and crying) with my girls. Those are moments that I don't want to forget - I pray that those thoughts and feelings stay with me and with the youth as YC moves further away. Here are some pictures from the fun times:

Here's my ticket from the lovely YC event!

Rexall Place was COMPLETELY packed with 17,000+ teenagers!

STARFIELD!!! My favourite worship band EVER was there :D

Hanging out with some of my youth girls outside of the rollercoasters in West Ed Mall! Totally rode them. Total awesomeness.

I heart this picture. Look at all those teenagers praising God! Makes me smile :)
