For the next 30 hours or so I will be gone. I'm going on a Womens retreat that the Member Care Coordinator has organized. There are about 40 women attending.
I am looking forward to this time very much. We've had a lot of issues going on in our family recently and I'm thankful for this time to pray uninterrupted, fellowship with other women, and recharge.

Psalm 73
21 When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered,

22 I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you.

23 Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.

24 You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. 25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. 26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 27 Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. 28 But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.
