October Retreat

Pat summed it up beautifully......We had spent time praying that God would speak to each woman in the group He had brought together this beautiful October weekend and did He ever do just that.......
He spoke to our hearts as we practiced the Listening Prayer and He encouraged us as we shared all that was on our hearts.

We ate delicious meals prepared by Paulette and Martha, we laughed and cried as we studied together, and we got out of our comfort zones as we learned the art of visual journling from Mary, our visiting artist...Mary has such a gift of teaching and sharing about visual journaling that she was a blessing to each of us.  We appreciate her being with us so much....We hiked up the mountain and enjoyed God's creation and then ate marsh mellows around a fire while we sang hymns and praises to God.  Sunday morning, we finished off our weekend with communion and Scriptures for each of us to take with us as encouragement.
