What an amazing time we had at our women’s retreat last weekend! The weather was beautiful, the lessons were awesome and God was in the HOUSE! I can’t even begin to describe it all – and frankly, I won’t because some of those reading might be planning a Chocolate Boutique retreat and I don’t want to give anything away! I will say that the overriding theme was the extravagance of God’s grace…and that can simply blow you away when you sit down and truly THINK about it.
Besides the lessons, crafts and activities, I really have to say the best part of the retreat was two-fold – getting to know some of the women at church better but also how we all were one. It’s really very hard to explain, I guess, unless you were there. But everyone came with an open heart and an open mind, ready to spend time getting to know and love the other women in our church. There are so many more I wish had come; I feel like they really missed out on something wonderful last weekend. Hopefully, they’ll join us next year – I’m already planning it, riding my wave of excitement from this one.
Our campfire Friday night…
…which we sat around on swings…SWINGS, people! It doesn’t get much better than that!
Astounded by my complete lack of marshmallow toasting ability, Trish offers me her perfectly browned ones. What a pal!
