In His Presence

The Retreat was wonderful. The Lord seemed to answer all of our prayers. The lady who lives there and runs the camp said they hardly ever have weather that beautiful. The women were so sweet and tender towards one another. They shared their hearts, even in our corporate times. The worship songs matched what God was doing in our hearts. It was everything I hoped it would be. He is so faithful and I am amazed at how much He wants to meet us.

I also have never felt so supported in prayer. Some of it is by you guys. Thank you so much. I am so grateful. One of my friends sent me an ecard, every morning for three or four days until I left for Retreat. The Retreat was called "In His Presence" and this was on one of the cards she sent, and I don't think she even knew what the theme was.

We are never away from God.
He is never away from us-
Not even for a moment!
He remains within us,
continually present in our lives.
~Max Lucado

I meant to read that at the end of the Retreat but I forgot, so I put it on here instead.

Thank you for your prayers and love.

I LOVE every retreat I have been able to come to...but this one was amazing!! I needed it so badly, I needed to hear the things HE wanted me to remember, and I needed to remember to take time to just sit and listen to Him or sit and enjoy His amazing presence! Thank you so much, you guys did great!! God is so good!!

Too funny, I sent them a link too for Andresa:) Thank you for all that you and your team did to put this retreat together. I can't tell you how many ladies mentioned how busy their lives were and really needed the retreat to get quiet with God, and they were looking forward to making it a priority at home too. The whole weekend was such a blessing. YAY!

Julene, thank you for telling me you heard them say they wanted to make it a priority at home too. That means a lot. And it is what we were hoping and praying...
