Wow this weekend has been busy and it's only Saturday!
My Hubby has been away at The Shephard's Conference all week at Grace Community Church. He went with hid Dad, brother and a couple thousand other men. He had a fantastic time but I was missing him!
I got the oppurtunity though to spend half the day with them yesterday. I was able to get off work early and I went up to the conference at lunch time.I got to hear two of the sessions yesterday. One of by Steve Lawson on the book of Job and the other was by John MacArthur and was the closing session of the conference.
It was so much fun to catch a little glimpse of what my hubby and father and brother in law were doing this week. They had a great time being renewed in thier faith and learning from some amazing men!
At the conference they got 24 books plus a $50 giftcard to the conference bookstore. AND in the conference bookstore all the books were majorly discounted. Soooo we came home with a TON of books!! We came home with 35 books! Yay! I can't wait to start reading.
Some of the books we got that I really wanna start reading are:

A House Divided: Elijah and the Kings of Israel by MacArthur
Prophets, Priests, and Kings: The Lives of Samuel and Sual by MacArthur

Wow!! 35 new books! All I want to do is start reading them! But alas...there is no time for that now. Anyway we had a great time this weekend and loved getting some time with my father and brother in law.
Also, because it is a men's conference they have a bunch of jewelery at reallly good prices. So yesterday we went in the bookstore that and I was looking at the necklaces and found one that I fell in love with!! I was teasing my husband that he better have gotten me one! I didn't really think he had gotten me any of them because they were really nice and we are trying to save money.
Soooo tonight my super sweet hubby suprised me with a a little present!!! Aaw how cute! Wanna hear the cute part? It was the very same necklace that I had picked out the night before. And he baught it before I had ever lain eyes on! Wow does my hubby know me or what?!?!
Look how pretty: It says in Hebrew, "I am my beloved's and my beloved's is mine" Song of Solomon 2:8.
I really love it and it is special because I am learning Hebrew right now. I can actually read what it says!!!
