The following was a post I started at the end of October, post-retreat a month before. I will add a few pics and start a new post. If you don't feel like reading, no worries. Just let me say, Happy Thanksgiving!
I can't believe how much time elapses between each of my blog posts. Honestly, I hate the pace that I seem to be keeping right now. Just minutes before, I was chatting on line with a Verizon rep trying to get an update on my iPhone. It took a hour to get an order processed. It took changing my password three times, due to my lack of knowledge, accuracy or something. At the end of the process, I just put my head in my hands and cried. My photos are taking forever to download and forward to email so I can share with you my going-ons of the past month.
The Women of Covenant Retreat was wonderful, but just not long enough. I needed more than a weekend. Being the director means countless hours trying to get a planning committee together and on the same page. Fundraisers are viewed differently by different people and money is always an issue. I opted to find a beautiful setting with great accommodations which always means more money. We believe in the end, we found the perfect place with the perfect speaker and music director for the weekend.
Maybe next year, we can go later when the leaves are changing. Can you imagine this setting in peak Fall season?
My desire was to have everyone together in the same lodge. We housed and slept 27 women comfortably.
Bible Journaling classes were a part of our weekend.
We laughed, we ate, we prayed.
We built an altar.
It was what we needed...just a little longer.
Pictures from the last month.
For this I prayed...
God hath granted the desires of my heart.
I am thankful.
