Belinda - welcoming first-time participants to Write! Canada 2008
She postively glowed as she took her place at the microphone. Her passion for writing, for encouraging others in their calling, and for ministering "belonging" to people, began to flow.
"I want to welcome you!" she said. There was no doubt as to her sincerity.
A little later in her talk...
"I am an encourager. That's what I love to do. So if you need any encouragement this weekend, come and see me. I'll give you some! It's what I do best..." Her joyful enthusiasm erupted into laughter and rippled across the room as other joined her. Any ice in the room, at that point, was instantly melted.
My mind is so full of all that God is saying and doing! So much so that I can't sit and force myself to concentrate on the very thing I came here to focus on this weekend - writing. But I did want to share this snapshot of the conference with you. I'm SURE Belinda will have more to share in the coming days. If not directly about the conference, you're sure to see the fruit of it as she moves forward in this aspect of God's calling on her life.
Special blessing are sent to those who would have loved to be here but couldn't make it. We're bringing home C.D.'s!
Blessings all! Susan.
