The above quote was spoken by Tammy Trent at our women's conference in Schenectady today. And today, I did see beautiful...all around me. The faces and smiles of old friends and new ones, all in one common place for one common purpose...to praise our Savior and to learn more about His ways for our lives! I shouldn't be so amazed when God does something wonderful, but here is another example. We had an extra ticket so my mom brough it along to give to someone who might need it. We walked to the front door to wait and right there was a woman named Beth. She had wanted to come to the conference but it wasn't in her budget. She said, God if you wake me up early tomorrow, I will go and see if I can somehow get a ticket. God woke her up and so she headed to the conference, even considering making a payment plan with the church to cover the $35. But God provided her with our free ticket. He's incredible! She was a lovely young woman who spent the day with us. Here, she took a group shot right after we met:
