The ladies Retreated!!

Hullllo peoples! Boy did I have a wonderful time last weekend on the retreat. We had 53ish ladies & I'm telling you, it was so much fun! Our theme was 'Emerge' & that's just what we did. You know how sometimes when you go you know Gods eather going to move in your life, or you are just there to refresh & renew? Well GOD truly moved & soooo many of us were freed from years of bondage!!! ( I'm still reeling from it!). He is so good! Also, the 'weirdest' thing happened!. I was sick for 3 days prior to going & guess what happend?. As soon as I was driving up, I started to feel so much better & I felt great the entire time! (thanks to those that prayed;). As soon as I got home I was sick again! - God healed me for the weekend!!!. HE IS SO worthy of our praise!! This pic is a few of us just after we repelled from 6 stories on a zipline. ( I nearly couldn't do it! I literally had to be forced to let go!) But, I trusted God & here I am- alive & everything!! lol...  I am so excited to see all my visitors that stopped by over the weekend- You Are JUST PRECIOUS to me!!! I can't wait to pop around & see whatchall be up to- I just LOVE you girls!!!. Ok, I'm gonna head on over to your place :)  LYLAS/B  LA

Sounds like a fun retreat! My sister goes to a retreat every year and loves it, one of these years I would love to go with my church ladies to our retreat. They look like so much fun

Hang on to your Victory!
The Retreat sounds wonderful. When God and women get together there's no tellin' what will happen. Hope you feel better soon!

Alicia said...

Sounds like you were blessed!! Ugh..that nasty enemy will try to hold us back from what God wants to show us. But, it looks like God totally sustained you through the weekend!! Awesome!

Glad to hear that you had a wonderful weekend and that God moved and brought much freedom at your retreat. I am going to a retreat at the end of this month too. I can't wait.

Great that you have lots of fun! Though I don't know what 'retreat' means. Think we don't have such a thing in Europe. Never heard of that!

Alyssa said...

This was an inspiring post. I'm glad you shared it. Going on a retreat is awesome...although I don't know what "zip" is. Have a wonderful day.

Kristi said...

I am so glad you got better to be able to enjoy the 'time with the girls' b/c that time is always so special!! :)
Just wanted to pop by and tell you that you can always google your brand of breadmaker and find instructions/recipes for it but a lot of recipes I've found have a 'for breadmachines' set of instructions too :) Bread making is not scary or hard (especially if you have a breadmaker- LUCKY lol) and the results are YUMMY!
Let me know if you try it!

I'm following you now. The tilapia sounds delish with asparagus. I'll have to try that. :o)

Jessica said...

Glad you were free of the sickies for your retreat, hopefully they finish leaving your body soon!

Fresh Mommy said...

That is awesome!! We all need a time like that. We've been having some similar times of refreshing at our church... couldn't be more excited about it!

You are brave! I don't know if I could do the zip line! Glad you had a wonderful time! :)

Maria said...

So glad you had a great time!! I was hoping you would. We all need it so often as women.
Maybe be sick was the devil's way of trying to steal your blessing from the trip, and letting you get sick on the way home was the same. Just a thought!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! I'm so glad you had a WONDERFUL time! God knew you needed to be refreshed this weekend. Isn't Be AMAZING!

How awesome you repelled from 6 stories? BRAVE WOMAN!
