Strength is forged in adversity!

I've been meaning to blog about our Vegas Trip with the Choir for sometime now. But couldn't seem to bring myself  until today to actually doing it. Especially since there were so many different challenges on this trip. That I didn't really feel like complaining and venting about all of the things that felt went wrong. I tend to dwell on the dark side moreso then seeing lessons that I'm suppose to learn for just that lessons.
However overall I'm grateful like I said in my last post that I would be leaving.
Embarking on a new adventure &  esp because of these ladies.

These four sisters were who we stayed with from 2am Saturday morning when we arrived on their doorstep. Til we left that Monday after noon. Riki (blue top) and Jo (glasses) were around the most. They filled the fridge for us, let us sleep all over the place til wee hrs of the morning, singing,laughing, joking around with them. And they truly made their home our home for the weekend. The best gift we could've gotten this wholetime exactly when we needed it.
So those four plus the following

was what made up for a full house. Learning about each other through a level outside from getting together for choir practice or social sites like  facebook.  Had to be one of the most refreshing blessings I received. I was truly given insight of what makes each of these women strong,faithful,enduring,extraordainary women of LOVE... And so anytime we departed to go either w/our boo's lol (anya & sarah) or chilling w/other choir members (lola,nai,jackie and emma) was like for me not them cause it'd require me to  But when we'd meet up again later as a household it was great which made our bond stronger. Reminding me of why we were there to serve others and not to wait to be served. Encouraging when needed and reassuring sisters that things are never as bad as they feel at the moment. And I was really grateful to have been with  them. They made this trip one worth looking back at and knowing I was suppose to be there w/them.  Even if I had to take anya hostage at one point, group therapy w/nai,sarah,emma,jackie and april on one occasion & then almost steal poor lola's room. When hello her stuff was all over the floor & still I didn't noticed "OCCUPIED".lol blame it on Riki hahaaha that plus much more is why I felt the spirit the strongest during this trip w/these sisters. When their strength  forged through when adversity tried to break my spirit. I can look back and say I LOVED OUR VEGAS TRIP. Vegas refining ME more then I wanted but surly glad that it did. Never gonna forget the Lord's will in all of what was experienced. Hopeful that the members both in the choir and outside grow a little close to our Savior and always remain on the Lords side..
