I am blessed to be in a community
of faith called Eastside Church of Christ.
This weekend, we had our annual
We spent time praising God together.
We played games.
We got to know each other better.
Michelle did an amazing job of organizing the event.
On Friday night we thought about how our lives are like
a quilt and we made a quilt to hang on the wall.
On the quilt we wrote our hopes for the retreat.
A great number of women hoped for new or deeper
relationships and friendships.
We ate together.
I felt so blessed to be asked to speak.
Notice the words on the screen taken
from the book of Esther.
We discussed how we are each
gifted by God to serve the people
we come in contact with each day.
What a great weekend we had together!
Thank you Vanessa Leonard for the photos!
