A big THANK YOU to all who were praying for the retreat in Kansas last weekend!  All my flights went smoothly and I made it through O'Hare with time to spare!  This is the message that greeted me as we entered the Living Waters Ranch.


The weather was absolutely fabulous, the view was spectacular, and best of all, God showed up big-time!  Apart from a few minor glitches on my part, the weekend went off without a hitch!


I'd have to say the best part was feeling the presence of the Holy Spirit as I taught on Saturday.  There's nothing in this world like it!


I couldn't have asked for a better group of ladies to spend the weekend with. Such love for Jesus!



Of course, whenever I'm doing something for God there seems to be obstacles, usually physical ones.  This time I woke up the morning I was to fly to Kansas with a pinched nerve in my neck.  Not only did it hurt like crazy, but I had a hard time turning my head. Interestingly enough, it settled down right after the retreat was over. Hmmm...I think my friend Steve up above hit the nail on the head!

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. ~ Romans 8:37


The beauty of the retreat center helped draw us even deeper into God's presence.


To top it off, Kansas is one of the few states where I know someone.  My friend Sue lives just a few hours away, so I was able to spend the rest of the long weekend catching up with her.

Thank you, Lord, for the fabulous weekend.  What a privilege it is to share your Word with others who also long to know you deeper and more completely!  Thank you for your guidance, your protection and the many blessings you've bestowed on us all!
