The Common Thread

"The Lord is my portion," says my soul
"therefore I will hope in Him."
Lamentations 3:24

~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.


  1. I love the picture of the sweet woman in black holding tightly to her hot pink gift bag! Praying that the gifts would remind the attends of God's gracious provision in the days/weeks/months to come. I just used my WOTH cloth today...3 years of reminding me of God's gracious provision!

  2. I just love the photos - makes me smile and remember all the laughter at Glen Eyrie this Summer!

  3. I loved the pictures, and pray the volunteers will come home as blessed as the guests. Jesus has a beautiful bride.
