Womens Retreat 2009

MOMMA, ME, AND SISTERS
SIS IN LAW KEENA,BFF FARRAH, ME, AND SIS SHANNON






OLD HIGH SCHOOL FRIEND APRIL. I LOVE THIS GIRL AND AM SO PROUD OF HOW FAR SHE HAS COME.




WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A WEEKEND!

OTHER THAN ALMOST ENDING UP IN KENTUCKY INSTEAD OF TENNESSEE AND HAVING TO BACK TRACK AND THEN ENDING UP IN THE SMOKY MOUNTAIN BOON DOCKS INSTEAD OF OUR NICE LITTLE CABIN IN THE MOUNTAINS....... WE HAD A GREAT TIME! ( I LEARNED AND GREAT LESSON, DON'T DEPEND MEMORY TO GET YOU SOMEWHERE, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE DIRECTIONS TO GO BY.) lol


I AM STILL TRYING TO LET EVERYTHING I HEARD SINK IN. I HAD A BLAST! I GOT TO LAUGH WITH A BUNCH OF GODLY WOMEN AND CRY WITH THEM TOO.

THIS WEEKEND WAS A MUCH NEEDED RETREAT FOR ME.


OUR CHURCH IS BLESSED WITH THE MOST AWESOME PREACHERS WIFE EVER. I THINK SO MUCH OF HER. NOT ONLY BECAUSE SHE IS JUST ONE OF THE GIRLS AND UNDERSTANDS EXACTLY WHAT WE ALL GO THROUGH FROM DAY TO DAY BECAUSE SHE GOES THROUGH IT TOO BUT MOST OF ALL SHE IS LIVING ON THIS EARTH FOR GOD AND DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE CALLED HER TO DO. SHE TRULY HAS A GIFT OF SPEAKING. SHE STOMPED ON MY FEET AND BLACKED BOTH MY EYES!! (HAD TO BE THERE) IT TAKES A SPECIAL PERSON TO JUST SAY WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID BECAUSE DEEP DOWN WE ALL NEED TO HEAR IT.

IT IS JUST AWESOME TO SEE 80+ WOMEN COME TOGETHER FOR THE SAME REASON AND THAT IS GOD!

I CAN SAY 100% THAT GOD WAS ALL AROUND US ALL WEEKEND LONG.


I KNOW THAT HE HAS WORKED IN MY HEART AND SHOWED ME THINGS ABOUT MYSELF THAT I NEED TO WORK ON AND I INTEND ON DOING THAT.


I CAN DEFINITELY SAY THAT I AM STRONGER NOW THAN BEFORE!!

WE HAD ALL KINDS OF FUN...... SOME WENT SNOW TUBING, SHOPPING, KARAOKE (SEE BELOW.)
I hope when I am Ms. Imogene's age I can move like her!! (move it girl move it)


IT IS SO GOOD TO HAVE FUN IN THE LORD!!
TO ALL YOU GIRLS THAT WENT, I LOVE YOU ALL AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR.

Holly,

Do you mind if I try to put some of the photos of family on the Rogers Review website? Glenda is now online and I'm sure she'd love to see them.
