This weekend my friend Heather, who co-leads a CM co-op and a CM book discussion with me, and I are taking 11 ladies on a retreat. We're calling it A Time Apart. It's simply a time to unplug, leave the kids at home, relax and enjoy fellowship and prayer time together.
We are staying at a lovely house on a private 10 acre island in Georgia. Our original camp accommodations fell through and I was able to snag a wonderful deal on this house for our small group. We have NO agenda other than morning and evening devotional and prayer times. Some moms will share a favorite handicraft, we have kayaks, a hot tub, games, Tim Hawkins DVD, and nature. It should be a wonderful, relaxing time to recharge. We leave Fri afternoon and return Sun afternoon.
My specific requests:
- traveling mercies
- husbands and kids at home
- God's loving presence to be felt by the ladies
- open fellowship
- rest for all the moms
- that God would grow each of us, meeting us each in a very real manner
- God's wisdom and grace for each of the ladies leading a devotional time
We're all looking forward to it. I just want to bathe the entire weekend in prayer.
