X is for eXcited (OH YES IT IS!!)

I can't help it! I know it's still four weeks away, but I'm getting Tiggerishly excited! I just want the next two weeks to fly past like lightning so that I can savour the last minute preparations and then actually be there!!

Weird aren't I! Other people get eXcited about going on holiday to eXotic foreign places, but I'm tingling about the thought of driving 47 miles, just into the next county, to set up my tent on an agricultural showground, meet up with very special friends and do lots 'n' lots 'n' lots of work in a week and a half.

I can't wait to see this...

and this...

but we don't want too much of this!

What is it I am so eXcited about?

It's called New Wine North and East, it's a Christian family conference attracting around 6,000 delegates, it's packed full of events and activities for all ages, it's full of the presence of the living God and, once again, I have the privilege of serving on the Stewarding team in the Radio Control Office which is full-on hard work, but also about as much fun as it is possible for one body to handle!

... and counting!

To see other eXtraordinary X posts, bounce over to Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.


  1. Lucky you I would so love to go to New wine this year not been for 16 years . My seperated from husband did not consider it a holiday so never went back.
    Unfotunatley when your going through divorce finaces don't stretch. I hope you have a great time and that it is not a washout. Sorry re read this it sounds like I am full of self pity I am not I am very thankful for how God is leading me through the seperation. How people manage without God as number 1 in their lives I do not know . Good blog

  24. I'm excited for you! Although I don't have religious beliefs, I feel very strongly about all of our spiritual beliefs. (I know you knew that and thanks for your prayers for my sister.)

    Whenever a group of like-minded spiritual and religious folks come together, the energy is electrifying. I can't wait to hear all about this miraculous occasion.
