So how is your Easter preparation going?
I am so excited to be giving a presentation tomorrow on The Seven Last Words of Christ for Women at the Well, Christ the King Church, Moline, Illinois. Preparation for this talk is what pretty much has caused me to be so behind posting new entries for this blog. Yikes!
Anywho...the other reason why I have neglected Lisa Levy's Life Lessons is I had the marvelous opportunity to make a girls' TEC this past weekend with my husband and it ROCKED!!! (We had to prepare a talk for this weekend too...It was a blast! Thank you, God!)
TEC is a unbelievable weekend that draws teens 16 and older and challenges them to make Christ a part of their lives and then live out their faith.
I was sooooooooooo inspired by these beautiful young ladies...I heard one story after another of how Jesus has changed their lives...such renewal, hope, healing, and forgiveness only God brings...Several of these teens have faced heart wrenching situations in their lives, yet they shine their lights brightly in a sometimes very dark world.
Matt has been the Spiritual Director for Northwest Area TEC for 10 years, having been on over 70 weekends. He is continually amazed and uplifted by these awesome young people. As this group is on fire for Jesus, I was reminded again this weekend why he is devoted to this program.
The words to a song one of the girls' used following her meditation sums it all up...
"It's so much brighter living in your world
Savior what you did for me
You gave me something I want everyone to see
When we stumble and it all goes wrong
Only you can make it right
So I say
Oh oh oh oh oh
I'm learning to be the light..."

"For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord will give grace and glory;
no good thing will He withhold
from those who walk uprightly."
