Come to the Light~!

This week-end was our Women's Retreat in Wyoming , Iowa.. What a great time we had.. 25 women came and what a joyous time we had. The picture is how our tables were decorated.. I loved the tulips...and the spring decorations..~! 
Friday evening we had a great supper served by some ladies at the camp. I showed the girls how to make candles.. They really liked this project and was able to take a candle home with them...Then we had worship time and sang songs.  We watched 3 videos from Women of Faith, Nicole Johnson.. Oh she is so awesome,,,we watched a funny one that was a little funny....and then a serious one.. We had a candle ceremony to show how much God loves us and we need to show our light...our Holy Spirit light.. We then all went to bed after singing lots of worship songs.. The full moon was out and it was shining on my bed in the middle of the night.It was so beautiful.
      Saturday morning we had a wonderful breakfast.. sang more worship songs and then Nancy Griffith game us a message called "Come to the Light".. She is a fantastic speaker and we had 3 girls come forward to accept Christ into their lives... I cried and thought it was just wonderful.. I'm sure God was happy too.   After lunch all the girls gathered their things and packed their cars to get ready to go home.. We all gathered into the dining area and we just sat and talked about our week-end.. They didn't want it to end.. course neither did I... 
     When we parted we had lots of hugs to give to each other and we all got into our cars and went home... It was a successful week-end and God blessed us with another Ladie's retreat..~! 
ta ta for now from Iowa:)
