So this week is a Retreat Week for me. Our group has a retreat that starts this evening and goes through Sunday. I've been overwhelmed with logistics, emails, phone, calls, and more. It's been a pretty crazy week. So instead of writing a new blog for today, I've got some oldies or goodies.
Some people would have the audacity to claim that this is just "filler" material. They'd be right. But they've probably never had to run a retreat! Here ya go!!
1. Why Naps Are Amazing - Being a parent of two, I now understand the term "sleep deprived". This is a good reminder from 2 years ago. Naps are amazing. I should fit one in this afternoon before the retreat...I wish!
2. Waiting on God Part 1 and Part 2 - This is a before and after of a time where I had to wait on God. It seemed like a rough time back then but looking at it now I see where God was taking me.
3. The One Canada and Chicken Restaurants - This is a story about how I thought I could effectively speak in a language that I hadn't spoken in 5 years. Yeah, you can guess how that turned out.
4. The One About Rain - A story about prayer and a drought where I live in Richmond, Va. This was written originally written in 2007, re-posted in 2008, and now re-posted again for you guys.
5. My Little Secret - This was my first post on this blog way back 2 and a half years ago. A look at just letting go when you worship.
I hope that these will give you something to look at and think about until next week. I'm sure to have something crazy from the retreat this weekend!!
