Duets: Still in the Wod, Still in the Mood....

So, this weekend I got author and Christian Comedienne Anita Renfroe's couples devotional book she has written along with her husband, John.  It's called, Duets: Still in the Word, Still in the Moodand it  follows Songs in the Key of Solomon: In the Word and In The MoodOur "assignment" for this evening is to go outside and watch the sun set together.  It's a rainy Monday here in Carolina, so I guess we'll have to brew some "fancy coffee" and think of something else to do together.  So no sunset tonight, but fireworks maybe? :) <3

Blessings Abound

My sweet friend invited me to go on a retreat with the ladies from her church.  It truly was the best retreat I've ever attended.  Listed below are the wonderful blessings that made this retreat so great.
1) The Lord was so, how do I say this, available.  I know He's available to us at all times, but I felt like I was able to "get close" this weekend.
2) The meals were simple, but really tasty.  I haven't eaten a hot dog in about 3 months, since I've been "watching it", and a hot dog has never tasted so good!
3) lovely weather
4) Aside from the one session with a speaker who encouraged and challenged us, and the 3 meals, there was very little structured time.  We could take walks, canoe, ride bikes, nap, play games with friends, or whatever we wanted to do!
5) I met a lot of great new ladies, and reconnected with friends I already knew.
It was such a special time and the memories will be with me for a long time.
