I think this is the longest I’ve ever gone without updating my blog since I first starting blogging. Last week was the week of the C4C retreat–so this mom was slammed with homeschooling and planning a retreat for 450 moms. The weekend was AMAZING. It was so funny even how it had a completely different feel from the January retreat…also AMAZING–but it was a completely different group…more domestic, China and of course lots of Ethiopia mommas. There was just a more laid back feel–maybe it was just us because it was the 2nd one of the year! There’s no doubt we’ll have to do 2 retreats next year to serve these 900+ women–and we’re praying about whether to have 2 retreats HERE…or 1 retreat here or in another location! We should have this decision made in the next couple of weeks–and then the planning for 2013 will once again begin.
Here is the slideshow of the March Created for Care families that we opened up our weekend with:
I’ll be posting two additional sessions that were not at the January retreat later in the week too by the most precious adult adoptee on the planet! We completely fell in love with Carissa Woodwyk, one of the co-authors of “Before You Were Mine”. I MUST get that book by the way! On my “to do” list for the week!
This mom is spending THIS week recovering and resting–and also praying through our school year next year. With this momma needing more rest–we are praying about a half day classical school close by or the full day covenant Christian school the littles attended the last few years and we have loved! While I LOVE homeschooling, I have to be realistic about what I’m able to do well while also focusing on getting better health wise for my children. I’m trusting the Lord to guide me, and although some times it’s hard–I’m thankful for this season. I stand amazed what the Lord can do in our weakness–and how He sustains.
Blessings to each of you!
