September 15-17, Emily and I drove to St. Louis, MO and went to the Joyce Meyer Love Life Women's Conference, along with 21,998 of our closest friends. We had worship times led by Israel Houghton and Cece Wynans; heard Joyce speak during most of the sessions and heard John and Stasi Eldredge. Can't begin to describe how refreshing it was. Hope to be able to go again sometime.
And since it was only a few blocks away from our hotel, we also went up in the Arch.
So here are some pics:

The Edward Jones Dome, where we attended the conference.

A view of the Dome from the Arch:

And - oh yeah - also where the Rams play football.

From the Arch: Home field of the St. Louis Cardinals:

From the Arch; The Old Courthouse, where the Dred Scott Decision was handed down:

Here is the Arch and some downtown buildings. The green dome on the right is the Old Courthouse.

One of the highlights of the trip for Em was spending Fri afternoon at Macy's with a 20% off coupon, compliments of Joyce.

Some sort of a weird double exposure thing that happened in the camera. I kinda like it, tho. Gotta love those 35 mm's.

Hi Janell ~~ Sounds like you had a good time. I like Joyce Meyers. I used to listen to her talks on my radio on the way to work or at work depending on my schedule.

It was Joyce who told me, on the radio, that 'all dogs go to heaven.' [... all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are ... Romans 8:19]

The lower animals are part of God's creation and are awaiting freedom from their oppression by man via the coming of the Lord.

What a fun trip Janelle! I'm sure it was very refreshing to hear Joyce speak, as well as the others.

I think you are very brave to go up in the arch, but great views!

Great view from the arch.I'm glad it was you and not me.
If everyone was like me there wouldn't be a building above one story tall.

You went to a Joyce Meyers conference?! I'm jealous. I have a lot of her books, and watch her program frequently.
