The Lodge at Ingalls Creek
|Most of the ladies were in rooms like this.|
|I had the bottom bunk in a room like this|
We took a walk along the river shortly after we arrived, soaking up the warmth of the sun, breathing in the alpine air as we listened to the rush of the river and admired the beautiful wildflowers.
We climbed to the top of the tree house that looked out over the river.
Best of all, we were in a place of quiet reflection where we could spend time with each other and with God. I was so grateful to be able to be here in this place where I was surrounded by my sisters in The Lord. I was enfolded in love and compassion by friends who came alongside me in my grief, cried with me, prayed with and for me and then laughed with me. What a blessing. I came home refreshed and prayerful that God will open the doors where I can in turn be a blessing to others.
I only brought my little snapshot camera with me but if you would like to see some truly lovely photos and more of what took place at our retreat you can go to this site: http://www.graciousoffering.com/blog/2015/4/20/a-treasured-retreat If you see the picture of the zip line, the answer is Yes, I did try it out. Even I can be a little adventuress from time to time.
