Wow, what a weekend! I just got back from our ladies retreat and they just keep getting better and better every year!

We made these name cards with a welcome letter to go along with their note pads and 'Hershey surprise' goodies.














There were 33 of us altogether in this giant house that is over 6000 sq. feet. It's three levels and you can see a panaromic view of the ocean.

Breathtaking.

Strangely (for April,) we woke up one morning with a blanket of snow all over the surrounding hills, trees, houses and even on the sand at the ocean shore. This is so rare for the Oregon coast.

Truly, you can not look out over the vastness of that amazing body of water without being reminded that we have a powerful God who created it.

I can't even begin to express how faithful God is. He moved in the lives of every single lady there in a most POWERFUL way. There was such a strong annointing from the Lord on our speaker and worship leader that just spread through out the entire house.

Hearts were touched.

Lives were changed.

Friendships were started.

Lessons were learned.

Shopping was done.

Sleep was lost. ;)

And it was SOOOO worth it!!!

I am tired. So, I've decided to excuse myself from any spelling errors or grammer issues today. Just today. Once I've caught up on my sleep... no excuses!!

I really do need to go unpack and spend some time with my family. I just wanted to say that I have the most AMAZING leadership team. You 6 are completely, over the top, fantastic. Thank you Kris, Lucy, Jodi, Lila, Sue, and Sandi for all your very hard work and faithfulness. See what happens when you are obedient to the Lord? Isn't He good?!! I just can't stop smiling.

Hoping to hop back on here a little bit to make an annoucement. Praying that it will be an exciting one!

Have a fantastic Monday!!!
