Women's Retreat!!

Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. When Christ (your real life, remember) shows up again on this earth, you'll show up, too—the real you, the glorious you. Meanwhile, be content with obscurity, like Christ. Col.3:3 The Message

This weekend was our Women's Retreat!! I have never been on any of our church's Women's Retreats before and I was a little nervous/but excited! My roommate got the stomach bug the night before we were supposed to leave, so I was a little bummed about that! It was good though that it came before- instead of at the retreat- that would've been really bad!! The retreat was at the Children's Harbour on Lake Martin in Alexander City (about an hour and a half away)!! It was the most gorgeous weekend!! We had an awesome speaker and it was like the message was just for me!! God was so good!! He knew exactly what I needed and I could not have been more blessed!! We have such sweet, amazing women at our church and it was so nice just to hang out with them!! There was laughing, sweets, hand-made flower pins, smores and a campfire, laughing, chatting, flowers, beautiful scenery, door prizes, laughing, crying, hugging, testamonies, singing, and worshipping!! It was so fun and I am so glad I went!! I even won a special door prize- a little painting that our pastor wife painted!! She is a very talented artist (some of her things are at The Nesting Place in Cahaba Heights)! I have always wanted one of her paintings!! :) I am already looking forward to next year's retreat!!

On the way home I see this...
