i left early on friday so i could spend time by myself and in the great outdoors. i had a nice time doing so; sightseeing, hiking, sitting and enjoying my surroundings, and taking pictures.
the retreat was well thought out and went according to schedule. the cabin we stayed in was owned by one of the ladies and it was absolutely incredible. it sat right on the water and had a huge deck with four swinging double chairs. i could have spent the whole weekend on that porch.
the theme of the weekend was 'our journey with God.' there were three sessions, covering our past, present, and future. there was a speaker who spoke for a short time before we each went off to have our own reflection time. we then came back together and separated into small groups of three to discuss the topic and share certain aspects of our alone time. like i said before, it was a good mixture of time spent.
to start off each session, we were asked an icebreaker type of question. i thought they were good, so i'm going to post them tomorrow as a kinda meme. i'll give my answers and if you feel like playing along, you could share your answers. so look for those tomorrow.
here's some of the pictures i took. i did take a lot of the women who were there, but didn't include them here. didn't want to bore you with oodles of pictures. and i love my new little camera - in case you were wondering =]
