What a blessing the weekend turned out to be. The retreat came together and Mary Beth gave us much to think about and to encourage us. Our cabins at Doublehead Resort were so nice. And their staff was professional and kind!
This place is beautiful- and we were there in misty cold weather!
We celebrated a friend’s birthday while we were there. Jennifer is a blessing to our church and her family serves us all in so many ways. I am so thankful for her! In honor of her birthday, Renee made mini cupcakes from the January Southern Living. I was thinking we would have about 5 dozen and all of us would get one-I should have known that Renee would do more than I could expect! She delivered 15 dozen treats and here is what they looked like:
Aren’t they amazing?! They were as delicious as they were beautiful. You may wonder who took all these fabulous photos? Not me. A talented photographer in our church, Tracy, took these and had them on her facebook page. Her eye for capturing beauty amazes me. The ladies that I mentioned are vital parts of our church and good friends to me personally. How thankful I am for their gifts! I think from this post you get a glimpse into the variety, talent, and beauty that makes up a church- Some speak, some organize, some cook, some create, some serve, some support. And the result always brings glory to the God who made us.
