|Carrie, Christy and I. These dear friends and their families stayed with us this past weekend.|
This past weekend we hosted a retreat/rally at our church and had many come from all over to join us. I was so blessed by this weekend and just enjoyed it so very much but I will admit feeling rather tired when it was all over.
We had so much going on that I didn't get the camera pulled out until people were starting to leave but here are a few pictures of some of the people that were able to come....
Our theme this year was "Good News!". We had fun learning about, singing about and encouraging one another to read the Goods News, Share the Good News and be Strengthened by the Good News.
"Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah." Acts 5:42
"How on mountains of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Is 52:7
During the week before Retreat started I spent some long days working to get our house ready for company. I thought it would be nice to have another shower so I worked hard on that. I got it done and the plumber hooked it up but when I went to use it on Friday night there was no hot water. That was a bit of a disappointment. It got fixed today but we weren't able to use it while the company was here. Oh well! Such is life at times.
