Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!Aug 26
Good times, God times! That’s what kind of fun I had last night. My girlfriend, Amy, and I drove to Greenville to her old church to hear none other than our most favorite – Lysa TerKeurst. (Lysa, if I knew how to make your name with blinking lights, I would.) Y’all, it was awesome. Lysa is one of the most down-to-earth, real deal, gifted speakers I have ever heard. It was so worth driving two hours in the rain to get there! (It’s a story I can tell the grandchildren. “I had to drive two hours, one way in the rain just to get me some Jesus.” I can hear it now.)
I just have to share one of the illustrations Lysa gave us last night. I’m nice that way. You’re welcome. She talked about how we all go through yucky things in our lives. She said those yucky things were like the eggs in a cake. We need all the ingredients to make the cake. She said we have dry ingredients like the dry times in our lives. We have the sugar like the sweet times. Then we have the yucky stuff, like the gloppy eggs that can make you sick if you eat them raw. We would love to leave out the yucky stuff in our lives. Can I get an amen? But…if we left those yucky eggs out of our cake, we would have a problem – no cake.
When we add the yucky together with all the other ingredients and add heat, we rise and make something beautiful. Isn’t that a great analogy? I will never bake a cake again without thanking God for making something beautiful out of the ingredients in my life. Last night was such a great time of fellowship and worship, it definitely counts as some sugar. What a sweet time it was!
Oh yeah, if you are a regular reader of Lysa then you know about “the coat.” Yes, friends, she had on “the coat” last night. It’s just as amazing as she. You gotta love TJ Maxx.

I love this girl!
By the way, girls just wanna have fun!
