"The Lord is my portion," says my soul
"therefore I will hope in Him."
~Day 1, 30 Days of Prayer
Hopefully, you are getting a sense of the rhythm of our Retreat schedule. Mornings include worship, singing, teaching from our speaker and small group discussion. Afternoons are for rest, relaxation, pampering. The evenings are for laughter, times of sharing old stories and memories and for making new ones as well.
Laughter in the evening playing the "Taste of Home" game, white-elephant style.
The common thread throughout the Retreat is gifts, gifts and more gifts!
It is hard to believe that the first Retreat is over today, that our new friends must go, taking a piece of our hearts with them -- women we just met a short four days ago. What an incredible honor and privilege to serve in this way.
