“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31.

Ballet Parking

Our sound guy Jeff was upset at how much vallet parking was..so he came up with "Ballet Parking"...which btw, is free and hilarious!

I am in Oklahoma right now and have really been enjoying the childen's conference. I am really feeling stirred up and have got a lot of really fresh ideas for our children's ministry. We have one more session tonight and then done. Tomorrow we make the 11hr drive home.
I got in 5 miles last night in the hotel gym..at 11:30pm. We have had seminars all day and night, so its been difficult. I'm gonna get 8 miles in tonight and it will likely be 11pm again when that happens.
I didn't get my run in weds as planned and I have a good reason why....
Weds we left for Oklahoma at 6am. Got here at 7pm and checked into the hotel(that had pics of their amazing fitness room online). No fitness room! They said they haven't updated their website! They said they could give me a pass to the gym that was 15mins away....NO TIME! I was seriously disappointed. So I decided I would just wake up extra early the next morning and run outside. No problem. We went to bed at 10pm.
At 11pm the hotel fire alarm goes off! I freaked! I actually thought it was my phone alarm..it was so loud I couldn't tell where the sound was coming from. As I panicked to push every button on my phone to make it shut up, the alarm stopped. So I went back to sleep.(real smart) 15 mind later it happened again. This time I assumed it was the air unit or something. While the noise was peircing, the fire alarm was not flashing at all so I didn't think that was it. Plus I figured if it was a fire surely someone would call me! The noise stopped again ...so I went back to sleep again. 20 mind later it went off again! This time I called the front desk........no answer. I was really starting to freak now. I threw on some pants and popped my head out my door and was SHOCKED! Water was pouring through the ceiling in the hallway and there were firemen every where! What the heck! Apparently, a guy on the floor above me got drunk, trashed his room, and ripped a sprinkler head off the ceiling. It caused massive flooding on the third, second(my floor), and first floors! Craziness! Fortunately my room was the first room next to the flooding that had no water damage. The fire alarm went off 2 more times....plus the hot water was turned off.
I slept maybe 2hrs all night! We switched hotels first thing. Needless to say, I didn't get in an early morning run.
It all works out though. We are at a much nicer hotel with a rockin' fitness center!
Hope you are getting your miles in!

Grace and peace,

April
