John 21:20

Saturday morning, the woman who Jesus loves was determined that she would stand in line for coffee no matter how long it took. The woman who Jesus loves had gotten less than five hours of sleep and checked out of the hotel at 6:45 am without any coffee. The woman who Jesus loves took a walk around the coliseum to find the shortest coffee line and check out the resource tables on the way. The woman who Jesus loves turned a corner and almost ran into the woman who Beth Moore loves.

One of the funny things that Beth Moore talked about was how John refers to himself as "the disciple who Jesus loves." She said, "Oh, John. He's so humble he never calls himself by name. He just says that he's the one that Jesus loves." Well, that's exactly how I feel about Big Mama. She doesn't shout it from the rooftops that she sat in the front row in between Beth's assistant and Travis and the praise and worship team and Beth called her daughter by name. I was so excited that I got to meet her although I stammered out a dorky greeting and my cheeks flushed with embarrassment. Oh yeah, one more thing. She's not "big" at all.

It was so great to meet you! I'm so glad you enjoyed the weekend as much as I did!

And you weren't dorky at all. I think I win that award.

wow...I just think it's so awesome that you got to meet her...even if you did miss half of praise and worship scanning the room for her...and then you just bumped into her when least expected!!
