a big thank you



Thank you for praying for the Haven of Hope Retreat this past weekend.


29 moms
such great loss
tell me about your child
tears flowing freely
understanding nods
yet the weekend was not full of weepy women
there was also
comfort
friendship
laughter in the midst of sorrow
HOPE





It's not an easy road, this path through grief.

But it's the one that my Lord has placed me on.

Praise God that He will never forsake me!

Praise God that He is always faithful to light the way!

It makes me smile just thinking about how generous all of you were to each other: those who organized it and those who came. I know you blessed each other's socks off!

Marsha, will you email the verses used on the ring thingy (technical term i'm sure!)? I'd like to make one for myself. =)

I am so glad it went well. Wish Texas weren't quite so far away, but we're already heading there in July for Camp Agape and one can only afford so much gas. :)
