Blissdom 2012 Day #1

God is so neat! Yesterday after I shared with you how nervous I was about Blissdom 2012, my blogging friend, Amy, invited me to join a group of bloggers that were touring Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace Plaza. (The invite was God’s way of letting me know that He’s going to take care of things and not to be anxious.) It was so neat to meet Dave and see him in action as he took calls for his radio show.

After the tour I headed to Opryland Hotel where I checked in for Blissdom 2012! For those of you that have never been to Opryland Hotel, here are a few pictures of this beautiful place. (I take it for granted because I live close by and have been here many times.)

As you can see, this place is huge (and it’s easy to get lost, but that story’s for another time)! This year I splurged and decided to stay at the hotel instead of commuting every day (I’m worth it, right?) Let me just say that my dogs (a.k.a. feet) are barking. I checked in at one end of the hotel and then headed to my room which was on the opposite side of the hotel. Hey, it’s great exercise, right?

I was able to hang out with these ladies tonight (Lisa, Leslie and Amy). I had such a great time chatting with them and it was so nice to be able to be myself.

This was the goody bag I received when I checked in! Too cool. Along with a few items pictured, I’m going to see if I can score some goodies from the sponsors that are here and put together a goody bag to giveaway to one of you! What would you think about that?

     Oh! I’m so glad the Lord provided you with some sweet ladies to hang out with, Tshanina.  I, for one, would LOVE to win a goodie bag!

    And YES!  You are definitely worth spending some money on a hotel room for yourself!

    I am so happy for you! I love your new header for your website! Royal purple is such a beautiful color and your picture is great! I will talk to you soon. (A friend of a friend who is in the web business -Praise God – offered to do my website as a service to the Lord because she had a similar personal abuse background and she is wanting to help me get the ministry off the ground.) A definite blessing from God.

      Thanks Lindy! How exciting that the Lord blessed you with a free site design!
