What a Weekend

I had a wonderful weekend. I was blessed enough to be able to go and spend three and half days with a wonderful bunch of women from my church community at an ACTS retreat. The time spent there refreshed me both mentally and spiritually. Once again I was reminded of the love that our Lord has for us.

I wish I could say that my husband had as blessed a weekend as I did. But poor thing, his weekend was much more difficult for him. My children did not really cooperate for him and proved extremely difficult for him. But by late last night he was looking a lot better than when I first saw him.


For I know the plans I have made for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a future full of hope. Jer. 29:11

So glad you got some time away with other christian ladies at a retreat. There's no better way to rejuvinate yourself spiritually and mentally. Sorry your husband had a rough weekend, but I'm sure he appreciates you much more after having the kids alone for a few days..hehe

I'm glad you got away. I don't know about you, but I am definitely a "better mom" when I have had some time away to regroup and get refreshed! In fact, I am going away this weekend. But my husband is going to be super busy, so his mom is coming out to take care of the kids...Lucky him! *wink*
