Last February I did something I wasn’t sure I was ready for-I spent a weekend with a dozen other bereaved moms at a small Christian retreat.
It was close quarters (a challenge for this introvert!) and we were together 24 hours a day for nearly three days. (You can read about it here)
It was beautiful!
We began by sharing the story of our child-no pressure to make it short, no pressure not to cry, no pressure to tie the ragged ends up in tidy bows for the comfort of those listening.
And then we prayed.
By the time we went to bed that night hearts were already being knit together in love. Many of us have stayed in touch since then and some live close enough to get together often. All of us left stronger than when we got there.
What a gift!
We are doing it again November 2-4 at Abby Acres Christian Camp .
Space is limited (18 as long as 6 don’t mind top bunks 🙂 )and the cost is minimal (75.00 including meals!), so make sure to call Hope Lee at the numbers listed below if you’re interested. [662-256-5652 OR 662-574-8445] The nearest large airport is Memphis, TN which puts you about a two hour drive from the camp.
Our theme for the weekend is “Anchoring Our Hearts in Christ”.
DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS OCTOBER 15TH so call Hope soon! ❤
I’ll once again be facilitating interactive sessions centered around Scripture, filled with personal examples and overflowing with encouragement for battered and bruised hearts.
Please join us!
I promise you won’t regret it. ❤
