So, I've always wanted to go to a Ladies' retreat, but never had the chance. Most of the last 14 years I've lived in AZ (too far to get back East) or been on the mission field.
This Fall someone called me and offered to PAY MY WAY to the Ladies Retreat in Vermillion, OH. Isn't GOD AWESOME!? (And that person is pretty special too!! =)
That was so nice and I was looking forward to sitting and SOAKING in....since I've been GIVING OUT lots on the mission field and with Deputation!
I rode with the ladies in this picture and we had a fun time on the way up to the retreat and back.
~Here we are at Durr Dutchman's restaurant. A yummy Amish restaurant...with lots of fun EYE CANDY in their gift shop. But it's the kind of shop that I only GET INSPIRATION from.....for it was Super COSTY!!! (One fake Gourd cost $68.00!!! If we would have purchased that and brought it home, it would be like this, "Well, Honey, we have NO FOOD this week, but hey, we got a gourd. Ha! =) ~
They called it, "Holiness Hair-itage!" A Women's Hair is Her glory!"~
Here I am at probably my all time favorite store...GOODWILL!!! I find so many TREASURES there for pennies! ~
However, there was ONE VERY SPECIAL MAN, and 5 precious children in Cinci, that I was MORE THAN READY TO GET BACK TO!!!
When I got home he had THESE ROSES waiting for me. HOW I L.O.V.E. that man.
Another 10 days or so and He'll come home to me.
PLEASE keep praying for my Phillip and for David Spivey!!!
Pray that God will give them strength, protection, and help them to be a BLESSING to the 3 churches in Colombia. They are finished in Medellin, and now have classes/services in Cartegena and Bogota. Thanks!~
