Get Rested – In Between Retreats
Come away for awhile…and get rested. This is the grown up version of taking a nap. I love the luxury of it, but don’t do it often enough. Well, I am napping, taking walks, and enjoying the rest before retreat weekend #2 begins.
I am writing to you from Singing Hills Christian Conference Center in Plainfield, New Hampshire. I spoke this past weekend to an awesome group of ladies who cropped till they dropped.
I cropped too. A two-page spread of Little Dude’s Adoption. Here is my creation:
I am not a true scrapbooker, but every once in awhile it is good to get my photos set in an album page and have a little fun with design.
My main focus for the weekend was to share a message I call, Gems from Garbage. Because when life happens and we are facing a lot of junk, we need to focus on the gems. It helps us to keep perspective.
What are gems?
They are glimmers of something good…
Answers to prayer…
Things we are thankful for…
Gems are the things we can praise God for while we are IN our situation.Gems are the things we can praise God for while we are IN our situation. Click To Tweet
The weekend was powerful. God is so good. And, now it is time for me to rest before I speak again this coming weekend…this time to a group of Quilters at the Heavenly Stitches Retreat.
This morning I took a walk, what beauty.
And, along the way I found a few treasures, each with a metaphor. So that’s been fun to think about today.
I won’t be trying to accomplish much while I am here. But I do want to give you a glimpse of this beautiful place.
Please pray for the upcoming weekend. I am excited to share again and watch God show up in amazing ways.
Be blessed with Rest,
