Yesterday my mom took my sister and I to a women’s conference called Time Out for Women. The theme was Hope, and the messages and presentations were amazing and inspiring . One was Virginia Pierce who talked about how the world measures success vs. how God measures success. And to God, we are successful in life when we serve others and love our neighbors. She spoke about how we can all be kinder, less judgmental, less competitive, more accepting, more loving, more helpful, and more aware of our neighbors in need. I loved her talk!
Then, I got home, and my kids had made me this “birthday plate.” I wasn’t really sure if I was supposed to eat it, or it was art. But I took a picture for their benefit.
