Sweet, sweet sister friends! Is there honestly ANYthing better than a snowy, wintertime retreat with God and your girlfriends to revive a depleted spirit?! (Well, I guess maybe a weekend away at the beach might do the trick, too, but humor me for a minute!)
In the midst of “Snowmeggedon 2015” here in Chicago (nothing like 19 inches of snow in 24 hours…), a big ole gaggle of God’s gals gathered together this past weekend to get REVIVED!
Letting Jesus and his promises in Matthew 11:28-30 be our guide, we got away with him, walked with him, watched how he did it, and learned how we, too, can live in the unforced rhythms of grace!
We let God replace the worry and busyness in our spirits, found whitespace for our souls, got rid of our inner “Modern Day Martha” “Melt-Down Moses”, “Woman at the Well Wearing Label”, AND our “Scared and Scarred Selves at the Side of the Road” , and had some good, old fashioned, sister friend fun!
We let the unforced rhythms of grace re-enter our spirits, and left the retreat a little lighter and freer than when we arrived!
What a weekend, sweet friends! It was my honor and privilege AND blessing from above to share in it with each and every one of you!!! Always remember, you are NOT worn out to the epic proportions of Boo Boo Head Kitty Girl (her before picture, anyway, poor girl…)
We know we may find ourselves depleted at times, girlies! But always remember this: you are in the hands of the most mighty and capable Creator, through whom ANYTHING is possible!
Peace, love, and JOY!
