Do you see these photos! This is what I cannot wait for! We are going to Callaway Gardens next weekend for a Ranger marriage retreat. As much as I would like to say that I am glad it is a retreat that will keep us in some classes during the day it will be a good retreat for Ben and I in other ways. We need to get away from the usual every day-to-day life that we live. It is nice just to get out of the city that you live in to drive a half an hour to a beautiful place like this and find peace and stillness!
Some definintions of retreat:
~an act or process of withdrawing especially from what is difficult, dangerous, or disagreeable
~a place of privacy or safety
~a period of group withdrawal for prayer, meditation, study, or instruction under a director
~a religious or spiritual term for time taken to reflect or meditate
I believe the last definition suits us the best this time. We have some decisions coming up that need to be made that will impact both of us. Ben and I are praying for wisdom, peace, patience, contentment and direction for what the Lord has for us. We want His best for our lives and want to see Jesus ALWAYS in our lives!
We plan on taking our bikes to get a few rides in and hopefully hit the pool. The azalea bowl should be in bloom and so many spring flowers will have their heads out seeking some sun! Ahhhh I just hope to have some lovely weather as well!
