It seems so long ago when I first signed up for this but now there is 17 sleeps left to go! 17 sleeps before I head back up north and experience the Cherish Conference – EXCITED is not the word!
It’s been an aim of mine to attend for the past couple of years. Last year I decided that this year would be the year I go as part of my *cough* birthday celebrations (it ends in an 0). The theme this year is Known.
It seems perfectly apt for me at the moment with things that I’m going through. Some things that I’m relearning about me and some things that I’m discovering about me. Slowly but surely changes are happening.
As part of the bumph that came through has a countdown in it. Today’s thing to do is to read the article “Know Him” that is in the brochure. I took it with me to read on the bus.
In the opening letter there is a line that really speaks to me:
Known not just for who we presently are but also for who we are becoming
For who we are becoming. Every day God is shaping me and refining me. My prayer for Cherish is that I receive clear direction where my life is going and what my role is in life. With my birthday coming up I see it as a shift. I need to find out who I am. I need to know who me is. So here begins my journey.
