My Weekend At Ladies Retreat

First of all, I know. It’s been a few weeks since Ladies Retreat and I still haven’t blogged about it. Forgive me? Please?

Well, let me tell you… I went up that mountain looking to receive something from the Lord and THAT I did. More than I ever imagined! I haven’t had an experience like that in years! My only regret: I didn’t take any photos. What was I thinking? I know Diania did, though… Maybe she’ll share? If we beg? Pretty please with a cherry on top?

We arrived Friday afternoon, got all settled in our cabins, and quickly went to our first service on Friday evening. The ladies of our church all rallied together to set up our common area in no time, which made me so proud to say I’m a part of this church family. When they set out to get something done, it gets DONE!

Our theme was “The Wizard of Oz” and it was perfect. Our speaker, Alisha Howard, did a fantastic job of bringing the word of God to our group. She is, in my opinion, the “ultimate women’s speaker”. We had 4 services total, one lasting from Saturday morning until about the middle of that afternoon. The Holy Spirit was not only there, He had a strong presence! The move of God that took place cannot even be explained. Everyone was free to leave if need be, but many stayed seeking what the Lord had to give them.

Time was spent with friends, also. Giggling, chatting, planning, and sharing what God is doing. Nothing compares to great fellowship with our sisters in Christ.

I took so much away from this weekend. I wish every woman could experience something like this. If the opportunity presents itself, please treat yourself to a weekend with the Lord and friends. If it doesn’t present itself, go out and find it. I really recommend it that highly.
