I am thankful for last weekend I could spend with the ladies from my church and many ladies from other churches at the Rejuvenate Ladies’ retreat at Scioto Hills Camp.
This ladies retreat is one of the camp programs from Scioto Hills Camp that I have been going since 4 years ago. I missed one time because I was delivering our second daughter 3 years ago. At this retreat, I met new friends from other churches there and also we got to spend time together to study God’s word, prayer time and also do activities together. They have camp program all year long for you, your family and even the whole church. Check them out here for more information.
I always came home rejuvenated, refreshed and blessed!
The location is at a beautiful camp where every path we walk declares the greatness of God. It is a peace retreat place.
This friendship I treasure in my heart forever! I thank God for every friend and sister he brought into my life. I count them twice when I count my blessings 🙂
Time with God’s word is special. I learned how to delight in His word and presence through the reading, learning from the preacher and writing His word in my note book.
They always have so many activities, indoor and outdoor. This weekend we got lots of rain and quite cold to be outside. I chose to be inside. They had craft activity and learning about salt and herb. I made this cute little tin box as a gift to a dear friend and my friends made cute boxes for themselves, too.
When the rain stopped in the afternoon, we had chance to go outside and I bundled up for sure! The beautiful wild flowers sprung everywhere. Butterflies took chances to enjoy them. And for the first time I saw spike-ish acorn!
Friends and nature are the best this moment!
We did an outdoor activity together, too. This time we did archery. It was my first time and I liked it! Watching the Hunger Games, The Hobbits and The Lord of The Ring kinda give me the idea how to do it… LOL! 😀 Just kidding! The instructor gave us specific interaction how to do it and some ground rules that we have to follow, or get hurt! No kidding, there are steps to follow.
The meals we had are AMAZING! The cook and the kitchen team did their best to provide delicious meals and snacks for us. They blessed us!
You can see how much God has blessed us at this retreat with His presence through the nature, wonderful friendship and His word to ponder in our hearts. I am thankful for my husband who encouraged me to go and had the girls while I was away.
Set aside some days or weeks just to be with God alone in His word and prayer time is just what we all need. I need it, not only once a year, but more than one.
Do you have Sabbath time every year? How many times do you take Sabbath time with God in a year?
