As I reflect on another year on planet Earth, I realized I had been remise in spending quality time with girlfriends.
So, when my friend, Annette, invited me to a local women’s church retreat, I jumped on it.
Below, we are pictured next to a grove of gorgeous redwood trees located in the majestic Santa Cruz mountains.
We had a blast talking for hours around a firepit, eating food we didn’t have to prepare, worshipping God, and listening to our guest speakers share their life experiences.
One bit of wisdom I walked away with is being a part of a purposeful community where we allow others to minister to us and where can minister to them.
Man, I needed to hear that, because I tend to go at life independently much of the time. However, it is wearisome and as women, daughters, sisters, wives and mothers we need each other’s support.
Let us consider how we may spur one
another on toward love and good deeds,
not giving up meeting together, as some
are in the habit of doing, but encouraging
one another… – Hebrew’s 10:24-25
