Hi Y’all from Denver!!

OK, so I wrote you guys a catch-up post this morning from the airport/plane in Houston and pushed “publish” right before they shut the door and made us power down and the internet knocked me off without saving my material. I was so completely annoyed.

Now I am sitting in my hotel room typing as fast as I can because I get picked up in a little over an hour and I am a LONG way from ready. I still have early this morning’s hair, not to mention make up. Not to mention deodorant. I told you this morning what all I’d been doing but no time for that now. I’ll catch you up on stuff later. One of the things I did tell you, however, was how thankful I am to have some big projects behind me (like the Israel trip) so that I can now resume my normal amount of activity in Siestaville. I can’t wait for our summer Bible study to start. I hope so much you’ve acquired your workbooks and that you’re forming small groups, if not in person, on line.

May I also say that I miss our Scripture memory team like crazy and you can rest assured we will pick that back up in 2011? Meanwhile, I have my own spiral going and I hope you do, too. In fact, mine is in my purse right here in my hotel room. Let’s see if I can spit out one of my latest verses without looking. Oh, yeah…

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and angels but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy and if I understood all God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge and if I had such faith I could move mountains but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it. But if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude…”

Yep, the Love Chapter. Sometimes it all comes back to that. And, yes, I memorized it years ago and out of the KJV but, based on some feelings I was fighting about four months ago toward someone, it obviously hadn’t fully taken. Sometimes God and I work on new lessons and sometimes we just go back for a refresher on an old one. We’re back.

Anyway, what were we talking about? Oh, I know. I was about to tell you that I’m in Denver for Deeper Still with my friends, Kay Arthur and Priscilla Shirer. I can’t wait to hear what God has to say to all of us through them. And, we are so entirely jazzed to have Kelly Minter joining us this weekend (yes, our summer Bible study author). She is a great joy to me.

Shoot fire, I’m running out of time. I will try to write you guys on my way home Sunday. But I just have to tell you one little thing. I checked into my hotel room and there was a gift bag sitting on the bed. I thought it was a bag of snacks because our event coordinator will often leave one of those in our rooms for Deeper Still. While I was unpacking, I glanced back over at it and realized it said, “Happy Birthday” (not till next week) but I knew then that it wasn’t snacks. I pulled out the purple tissue and WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT WAS AN I-PAD?????????????? I NEARLY FLIPPED!!!! I set it down on my bed and paced back and forth in my room staring at it like it might turn into a pumpkin. I wasn’t going to get one because I just couldn’t justify it. Still can’t. It’s just grace. Plain and simple. Grace. I’m just so-the-opposite-of-ticked.

GOTTA GO!! I’ll write you Sunday.

    Hi MamaBeth!
    Praying for your Denver DS event. So happy you got a iPad, what a blessing!
    There is a little something on the way from Liverpool, NY, but it is sure not as fancy as that (hope you like it anyway).

    I need to get back to Scripture memory, and the love chapter would be a good place for me to start as well. I’m having some relational issues – with my pastor of all people.

    God bless!!

    You are too sweet. So excited for you to get a gift, you resolved never to buy on your own! Are those the absolute best or what!!?? I pray for you, the loveliest of days, and I’m so thrilled your birthday is next week! So is mine πŸ™‚ I knew I adored you for a deeper reason than I could understand!!

    Love the way you write!

    Give Beth moments this weekend when she learns about You through her own words…right along with everyone else in the room.

    Dear Beth,

    ENJOY that iPad (but please we have to do something about the name…iPad – really!).

    In the Catholic Church, we celebrate today the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Just a fancy way of saying today we revel in GOD’S LOVE for US! It is an awesome thing when you sit and think about it!!!

    Anyway – sending love to you this day. Hope Deeper Still is jam packed with the Spirit from start to finish! I am looking forward to seeing you in St. Louis!

    Blessings – Sister Lynn

      Ha! That’s funny.

      Speaking of changing the name of the i”Pad”….here’s something funny:

      If you know a toddler you know they love to get stickers.

      Last week my toddler was wandering around our bathroom while I was tending to my “monthly visitor”. (I know this is TMI, but we are in Siestaville and it was so cute!)

      He stopped and looked curiously to what I was doing and said, “Mommy gets a sticker?” I laughed out loud and said, “Yes, honey. Mommy gets a sticker.” He paused and his face looked like, ‘why are you putting it there?’

    Lori says:

    Got my Scripture spiral going, too. Living and breathing the Word as our eldest son, a Corporal in the USMC is just today beginning his first deployment(Afghanistan)as a gunner. Rehearsing a verse from last year often “When [he] walks into the thick of trouble, keep [him] alive in the angry turmoil. With one hand strike [his] foes, with your other hand save [him].” Ps 138:7 Msg. So thankful he loves God!

    Praying for Deeper Still tonight. May His Spirit fall!

      Oh Lori – I am so proud of your son. As the daughter of a career Marine, I am always touched by anyone in the USMC. I pray for your son’s safety and speedy return. Semper fi…

      Love the verse you are praying over him.

      Your sister in Christ,

      Bobbie says:

      Lori, I’ll be praying for your son as he is deployed! Our son was deployed in the Fall/Spring (07/09)in Afghanistan and every morning read Psalm 91. (A Soldiers Prayer) He carried a wallet size copy of it in his wallet so I decided to share it with him each morning. We’re so proud of our men & women serving both at home and overseas, please tell him there are many praying for him and his buddies.

      Blessings, Bobbie

      Dear Lori,
      There are lots of praying military Moms (& Dads) out there, dear! Hang in there and keep on your spiritual kneepads for your son and his unit…as well as all our brave heroes. We have a group of praying parents in NW Ohio area…believe me, prayer makes the difference! God’s Word is our firm foundation. We’ll keep your Cpl. in our prayers too.

    Ashley says:

    What a blessing. And an example of God’s amazing grace. I have been struggling with my eyes being bigger than my wallet. My Birthday is on Sunday and I have been sad about not getting anything. (You know how it is having a young family)I have even been thinking about what I can put up on ebay to get the money for the e-reader I have been looking at. I am in the middle of your Patriarch’s study and you said in the video on Wed that “If you have to manipulate to get something, you probably are not going to be able to hold on to it.” So true. I have everything I need and so much more. I was driving along this morning thinking about how silly I have been. Am I turning 3 or 33?

    The Lord has often given me “over the top” and silly gifts like a free haircut (and highlight!). Just like your ipad.

    James 1:17 says “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows”

    (and those highlights WERE pretty perfect for a busy mom of 3!!)

    Excited with you for how the Lord LOVES to see his children giggle with delight!

      Mary says:

      If you can’t get the e-reader, you can download Kindle for your PC free from Amazon. Books are much cheaper for it than buying the actual book, too. I actually downloaded “SO Long Insecurity” and read it on my laptop. So treat yourself for your birthday and download it free. My birthday was last Sunday and we came home from a trip in our RV and I was unloading and fell down the steps and have a hairline fracture in my foot, so am in a boot and on cruthches for my birthday! An inconvenience, for sure, but I believe there is something I can do or learn from it.

      • Ashley says:

        Thanks Mary, I just saw your reply today. I had a great birthday. I taught my sweet elementary kids Sunday school class. Then came home for lunch and a nap! Then my husband took me out for dinner. It turned out to be a wonderful day!
        Thanks for the info on the kindle app. Good idea! I am a big reader…
        I wish you a speedy recovery! What a great birthday present!?! And you are right that the Lord wants to teach you through this! I was listening to a sermon the other day and the pastor said “Providence is God’s way of leading people who don’t want to be led.” I thought that was pretty true!

        Blessings to you!

      happy birthday Ashley! Mine’s Tuesday the 15th – aren’t June B-day the best?! 1/2 the year away from Christmas. πŸ™‚
      Blessings to you – enjoy your new highlights. I’m doing the Patriarchs study too – i was blown away about the changing name to Sarah (princess) and God changing Abraham’s “un” to his “How” – you will see when you get there (day 4 of week 2 I think)
      Wheeeeeeee God is so amazing to use a study written years ago to bless his little princesses!

    I am so excited about resuming the Scripture Memory Team for 2011!
    This year several of my Bible study group and I have joined together for that “accountability” factor that is so key. I was so over the top about what a blessing it had been to me in 2009, that they wanted to commit to it too. We have all been so blessed.
    Thank you, Beth for starting that fire in me to memorize God’s holy Word.
    Praying for you and Priscilla and Kay and Travis and the team this weekend.

    Happy Birthday BETH…. coming next week!!!! YEA
    I wrote this poem about Love a few days ago and then I traveled to I Corinthians to compare the two. My idea of Love which is so upside down and then I read the Love Chapter aside it. Here is my poem I wrote and follow the Love Chapter.

    What is Love?
    Sometimes love
    hires me, fires me.

    Sometimes love
    switches channels
    and I jump through hoops.

    Sometimes love is
    a performance act.

    Sometimes I’m not
    sure if love for love’s
    sake is true.

    Is there a catch?
    Is it on the most
    wanted list – love.
    Will there be a reward
    if I catch love?

    Sometimes love
    chills me to the bone
    sitting in a chair with
    a light above, questions
    flooded to me like rapid fire
    to find me.

    But maybe love holds a steady
    hand of warmth to hold
    me in it’s arms and is not
    asking for a performance
    and is caring not because
    of what I did or did not do.

    A warm blanket to keep me
    warm on cold nights. Or,
    a day full of sunshine
    after the storm.

    A kind word or encouragement.
    A smile, a friend.

    And maybe love is more than I know
    or believe.

    Love (I Corinthians 13)
    If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels,
    but have not love,
    I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

    And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge,
    and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains,
    but have not love, I am nothing.

    If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned,
    but have not love, I gain nothing.

    Love is patient and kind;
    love is not jealous or boastful;

    it is not arrogant or rude.
    Love does not insist on its own way;
    it is not irritable or resentful;

    it does not rejoice at wrong,
    but rejoices in the right.
    Β Β 
    Love bears all things,
    believes all things,
    hopes all things,
    endures all things.

    Love never ends; as for prophecies,
    they will pass away;
    as for tongues, they will cease;
    as for knowledge, it will pass away.

    For our knowledge is imperfect
    and our prophecy is imperfect;

    but when the perfect comes,
    the imperfect will pass away.

    When I was a child, I spoke
    like a child, I thought like a child,
    I reasoned like a child; when
    I became a man, I gave up childish ways.
    For now we see in a mirror dimly,
    but then face to face.
    Now I know in part; then I shall
    understand fully,
    even as I have been fully understood.
    So faith, hope, love abide, these three;
    but the greatest of these is love.

    NASB, Bible, I Corithinians 13

    So wonderful to hear from you, Beth! I had read on Kelly’s site that she would be there this weekend, and wished so much that I could be in Colorado with you all! I already love her, too! Yes, I have my workbook, my CD, an extra workbook to give to a friend, small forming 2 small groups-in homes and on-line! So excited!
    I wanted to really talk to you yesterday when I heard 2 women on t.v. talking about women being “catty” to each other, and then someone commenting to them saying it is about security!
    My daughter has wanted to really talk to you to tell you how much one of your studies has been speaking to you. She tried to type a message to you through your contact system, but couldn’t get her appreciation down to that few of words.
    She wanted to get permission to use some of your words when she gives devotions at a youth camp, where she is on staff.

    And congrats on your ipad… So jealous over here. πŸ™‚

    Honestly tonight was my “hanging out with Beth” marathon. Needed to hear some sound bible teaching, so I was listening to multiple “Wednesdays with Beth” and you were speaking so loud and clear to me. Love how God does that. As I was listening, I was flipping through blogs and there was this post.

    You bless me over and over and over. Praying that Deeper Still is everything God intended it to be for you and the women attending.

    That is so, so special and cool about the ipad!! It makes me want to go get one and surprise my hubby for Father’s Day. πŸ™‚ And I’m stoked that you can’t wait to do the Scripture memory team again. I got a friend in CO to do it this year and so she and I have kept it going, but we’re both looking forward to doing it with Siestaville again! Love to you and hope you have an amazing weekend with Jesus and your friends!

    SO excited for you!!! I fully understand the wanting to justify the iPad…but here’s why you NEED it…immediately purchase the keyboard WITH docking connector..download an app for writing and voila your next book/study will flow with new inspiration as mobility and efficiency make way for creativity! You can hike the Teton wilderness and pause for voice recording thoughts! Type your scripture memory cards while riding shotgun with Keith! The possibilities are endless…justify hard siesta mama and enjoy your blessed gift.

    Beth! I’m coming Mama Beth!
    I’ve been promoting Deeper Still since September; planning on volunteering since February, packing since May. And then my 17 y.o. told me his school trip to Spain was moved up to depart June 12th. Okay, got that detail worked out. He doesn’t want me bawling my eyes out at the airport, so we found him a ride to the airport~in Denver.
    Then my 14 y.o. develops walking pneumonia on Tuesday, the same day I took my 8 month old puppy in for neutering and dew claw surgery. Neither were doing well, both wanted me around 24/7. My first responsibility is my family.
    So I had to cancel my trip from Wyoming to Denver. And cry myself to sleep.
    Well, the Lord took pity on me, and my 14 y.o. wakes up today, jumps out of the bed that he has been glued to for 3 days, and puppy is perky again. I have used today to say goodbye to my 17 y.o. (and had some wonderful bonding/shopping time.)
    So I’m coming! I won’t be there until Saturday, but believe you me, I am SO ready to go Deeper Still!

    I would love to hear a shout out from other Siestas that will be there…

    Wow, an ipad…I really don’t even know what that is but it sounds cool! Praying for you all at Deeper Still. So wish I could be there. Yes, still have a spiral going this year.

    Oh Sweet Mama Beth,
    I am saying a prayer for yall this weekend that the Lord will move mountains as we know he does. I have to admit I have not been very good about my memory work this year. I started out really well…but have had to be accountable to anyone so that has made it hard…so I am thrilled to know it is coming back. But I figured if you got yours in your purse…I best get my behind in gear and pull my out and start learning it real good. somehow the thought of you talking to this siesta bout needing that word in my heart starting going in my head and I said ok sweet mama beth I got the point. I am loving the Esther study…oh I tell you I had to laugh when I made a list of all the beauty treatments I had in my bathroom and you are looking at someone who “thought” she didn’t have but a few…good gracious did I laugh my head off at that who process…my list nearly took the whole darn margin…I thought girl you have got to let some of those beauty treatments go. I see I have gotten long winded here…sorry about that…but I love ya and your lovely daughters and all the sweet siestas here.

    How awesome that you got an early birthday present! So, what in the world do you do with an ipad?…I’m so out of the loop!!!! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend in Denver and that the Lord pours out his annointing and blessing on you ladies. I started this year off with my scripture spiral but fizzled out around March and what do you know…..I need them now! Wish that I would have stayed with it…might pull out last years spiral and refocus on those. It will be nice to do them together again in 2011.

    My dear baby sister got married last Saturday for the first time at the age of 42. Through one miracle after another God brought together one of the best men we have ever met, a widower of the same age who had been raising his 13 year old daughter for the past 8 years. I am a single mom of five teens and twenties and he has loved my children, especially my sons, as if he’d known them his whole life instead of since November (my family of origin is all in California). They wanted only family standing with them so the bridesmaids were my sister and I, my two daughters, and their daughter, and the groomsmen were my three boys, my brother-in-law, and his brother.
    Anyway, they asked me to read I Cor 13 for the wedding and I asked the pastor if he minded a different version because sometimes people just tune it out. I read it from The Message, and gulped and teared up from start to finish.
    Trust steadily in God. Hope unswervingly. Love Extravagantly.

      i am a kathy with a yellow bicycle , old fashioned style but new. the “pink” caught my eye as i plan to have a pink boa party in october ,before the rush of christmas season, to get my girlfriends on board for next years script. memorization. they think they can;t memorize!! i am still going over last years all the way thru the 24 verses and praying them over others while i do aquatherapy exercises 2x weekly, since i usually have the kidney pool to myself. the Lord has sure used them in my heart and life and i can hardly wait for next year, esp if others close here would join me- just so they could be blessed too and bless others in return with them which happened so often for me as i send a lot of cards.!! enjoy your pink bike kathy in arkansas-i have to get my yellow one out from the shed, clean it off, and enjoy the heat of ontario summer that is finally here (like full force today with 95 humidex reading!).

      my heart is praying fervently for deeper still-can it come to detroit soon ? i am closer to detroit michigan than toronto. please???!!! waiting…

    Hey Beth,
    I know what you mean about an ipad being an act of grace. Recently, our school held an auction and for $10.00 you could buy a raffle ticket in the hopes of winning the ipad. I bought ONE! However, when they came by the table a second time I was going to buy another when that small voice inside said, “you only need one to win.” I did not buy another and when they called my name during the drawing, I almost fell off my chair.

    This is just one more time that our God has blown me away.

    Have a terrific weekend in Denver.

    A few weeks back a group of ladies from my church and i embarked on the journey of your Bible study Believing God. It has only been 5 weeks and it is awesome and life changing. I know that it is a blessing for all the women. But i would like to be selfish for just one moment and tell you that i think it was God ordained just for me to be there doing this study and with the women that are around me in it. My story is a long one so i won’t tell it πŸ™‚ But i want you to know that my eyes have been opened and i am walking back towards the promised land that God showed me years ago and this time i know i will get in. Sometimes i sit and listen to your message and i know actually every message i know for a fact that you are speaking directly to me even when you say darlin. I have never been darlin’ to anyone and little things like that have helped me to feel so loved. I am so thankful to be a part of this study.

    Love it when you think of us!
    I am currently working through Believing God for the second time. The first time the Lord used it to heal, this time we are working on scripture memorization to get His WORD in my heart and on my tongue…yes, I have my spiral!! I’m asking my nine year old to help me memorize since she is done with school and has a way better memory than me.
    I was so geeked you mentioned scripture memorization in your post for 2011! WooHoo!!! I CAN NOT WAIT!!
    God is good, ALL the time..
    ALL the time, God is good.

    I know you are SO busy…I don’t know how you keep up with your schedule and this blog…but if you have a second I think you would get a kick out of something my daughter did the other day. http://thisisthedayhehasmade.blogspot.com/2010/05/water-into-wine.html
