A Time of Refreshing

This weekend, I attended my second annual women’s retreat at Mission Springs with some lovely lady friends. It was a time of refreshing.

Sometimes as parents, our tanks run empty taking care of our families and homes. I desperately needed some fun, fellowship and good food (minus cooking and cleaning).

Our guest speakers were fabulous a mother-daughter team. The mom was a missionary to Congo, Africa for ten years and shared her extensive experience with us. Her daughter graduated seminary and shared her life with us as well. The worship team was amazing! The food was delicious.

We experienced a miracle as well. Our friend, Linda, joined us during the day and went home at the first night. Around 3:00am her heart went into AFib and her husband informed us at 7:30am by her husband. Immediately, Sandi, Annette and myself prayed for her healing. Later that morning, during worship, I was singing away and felt a nudge at my right side. It was Linda! Praise God her heart returned to its normal rhythm and she rejoined us!

We enjoyed the rest of the conference activities and said our goodbyes Sunday afternoon. I am already looking forward to next year’s get together.

Do you take time for R&R? If so, I’d love to hear the ways you do. Feel free to share with us.

Blessings, Rebecca
