Smiles.......

It's so good to be back!!!  Thanks so much for being patient with us!!  How have you guys been?  As you know from Jessica's post on Friday - we've been super busy!!!!  Our "Girls Retreat" was this weekend at the beach and it was super amazing!!!!  Helping to prepare for this retreat was totally amazing as well.  God opened up all kinds of opportunities for me to grow, in my faith, my craft, my trust, stamina....you name it, I grew there!!

I've always wanted to learn how to sew and I finally got my first lesson!!!!  Boy was it a doozy!!  I came up with the idea to make burlap tote bags for all 45 of us that were going on this retreat.  I figured "how hard can it be??"  AHAHAHAHA  I had NO idea!!!!  God graciously sent me an angel to help me navigate through this huge task and it was a complete success!!!  Thank you so much Donna for your love and support <3  It was a true blessing to work with you to create these beautiful bags!!!

Well here are some pictures from the weekend!!!!  I hope that you enjoy them!!
These were from our 5:30 a.m. sunrise service.  I really don't think that there is anything that can compare to praising and worshipping God on the beach at sunrise....it was breathtaking and captivating!!  We saw dolphins, and heard a brief testimony from surfer who had just picked up his bible the night before and after two years away, decided to get back on his board and surf!  He was surprised to be met buy 40 girls singing on the beach.

Here are some of the beautiful girls that we spent the weekend with!  God is doing such amazing things in  their lives, it was such a gift to watch Him work in them this weekend!!

Our worship times were lovely.  No matter where we were, God was there.  Truly beautiful <3

Here are some of the fun crafts and decorations that  we put together!!  We truly transformed a shell of place into a warm and inviting home!!  It was a dream come true for me in many, many ways!!!!

Until next time.............
