"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Phil. 4:6-7
This was MY verse in college! I had it memorized so well that I could say it forward and backward. It spoke volumes to my heart then, and it still does today. Tonight, my women's ministry leadership team team and I are planning our first retreat. It's a day retreat that will be held on beautiful Lake Keowee an hour from here on March 7. Our topic is "Indescribable"--how awesome our God is. And yes, it is based on the song by Chris Tomlin and the DVD by Louie Giglio. Y'all, those by themselves are fabulous! But, we need a little more! We have lots of ideas that we need to pray over and discuss. Several of the team members are not going to be able to come. So, there will only be about 6 of us. And, hopefully, your prayers will surround us!!! That's what this blog is about today! I've asked y'all in the past for your prayers, and you have so lovingly lifted up "Growing in Grace" for us! I come to you again for prayer and thank you in advance! How wonderful it is to be able to call on "bloggy friends" that you converse with weekly and have never met face to face! (There are a few exceptions there!!) That is something only God could conceive!
Here's something else that I would also appreciate! Tell me what you would absolutely love in a retreat if you were going to attend! Dream big! We already have fabulous food! And, beautiful scenery! And...wonderful door prizes! Think of details that would add to a retreat...some that might be small or large, but something that would always remain in your heart and would come to your memory when someone mentioned that retreat.
I can't wait to see what God says through your answers! Y'all are awesome, too! Have a wonderful weekend! We're FINALLY thawing out down here!! I am SO not a cold weather person!
