Well, I’m back from the ladies retreat.
I’m not even sure what I can say about it.
It was both exhilarating and disappointing.
The speaker was quite something. She had stories that were absolutely astounding. She had a connection with God that almost seems impossible…a connection I wish I had and don’t know how to get.
I will probably write about the stuff she taught later after I’ve gone over my notes again. She was a really incredible speaker and spoke on things I needed to hear and learn about.
My disappointment came mostly from myself.
I was hoping for a breakthrough and to come home a changed woman. That didn’t quite happen.
A lady from my small group sat next to me the whole time. She’s in a lot of grief but I don’t think I helped her much. Maybe she and I will still be able to become friends. We don’t know each other very well right now. But I wish I could have been a better source of comfort to her.
And, unfortunately, walking into my house put a bit of a damper on the weekend. No kiss from my husband, no chores done by the kids – just a lot of the same stuff I have to deal with day after day after day. A short break from it was nice, but coming home to be smacked in the face with it was not.
Well, I’m going to stop whining now.
I know what I need to get started in the life I’m working towards; that being a life that serves God’s Will in God’s Way.
I need to find a way to spend time with Him every day.
