God's Wonder Full World

Last month I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a women's all-day retreat at my church. "Wonder Full World" was hosted by wonderful women who shared their love for us and Christ.

We began the day by choosing a postcard from our dream vacation. I chose a postcard that looked like the Netherlands with tulips and green rolling hills and a beautiful old church-looking building in a quaint village.

Then we got to be royality for a day in our vacation spot. Here I am as Duchess Denise! I even got to wear a crown. We answered some questions about how we would live in our kingdom. I will travel by carriage and all the houses will be required to plant flowers in their yards.

These lovely ladies were my travel companions - (from left to right) LeClaire, Elia, Me, and Dorothy. I was so blessed to spend the day with them as we travelled around God's Wonder Full World.

As a group, we created our perfect best friend. Here Elia shows her in progress.
Our new best friend...She has a heart of chocolate, wears an angel halo, she's a Christian women, she likes to shop (has her purse), and has long arms to hug us. Her colorful hair represents all the beauty that we as women possess.

A part of the retreat is always some kind of service project. This year we made blankets for the less fortunate. As we tied the edges we said prayers for the unknown recepients of these prayer blankets.

I thank the Lord for this special day spent with very special women. :D
Blessings to each of you and yours,
