Well, I’m headed off to the retreat tonight, despite my daughter’s pleading for me to stay – “Please don’t leave me with all the boys for the whole weekend!!” (She will be just fine, though, thank the Lord, because of the friends she now has in our neighborhood.)
Just to give you a little peek at what I am headed to—the first night of last year’s retreat, we started eating dinner at 12:15am…and none of the women thought anything of it! (Do you remember me mentioning about the different time schedule here in Latin America?!?)
Please pray with me that many hearts will be touched, challenged, and encouraged to draw closer to the Lord as well as reach out to others that still do not know the love of Jesus – whether they be in their neighborhoods, workplaces, or families.
Hope you have a great weekend as well!
Titus 2:1,3-5 (NIV) You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine…teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Have you been able to attend a women’s retreat lately?
