Part of the vision of “Godly Girlfriends Retreats” is Fun, Fellowship, and Freedom.
I found some pictures in an album titled “Girlfriends Weekend”. We had met at a San Angelo, Texas creek side cabin for some girl time. We made t-shirts, visited a monastery, shopped for antiques, ate lots of Mexican food, had coffee on the deck, and shared testimonies.
We sang, and we worshiped.
Melissa’s Sunday morning devotional inspired us to
persevere and be the women God calls us to be.
And this picture in my computer file is titled
We meet for lunch every Tuesday in Texas-
I only get to join them about 4 times a year.
We are a mixed bag
(not to be confused with old bags)
We are kind of an unlikely group of friends.
We are from several different churches and denominations
but our oneness is in our love for Jesus.
Last summer, some of my North Dakota girlfriends,
(and one handsome guy)
met together at my house for
pot-luck lunch and crafts.
It was a fun day of getting to know each other better.
(Looks like I have a thing about t-shirts!)
Seeing these pictures reminds me how important it is for us women to connect with each other for encouragement and support. Maybe these girl gatherings are a little like the quilting bees or canning sessions of years gone by. We just need each other.
You will, no doubt, see some of these faces at one (or both) of the upcoming retreats.

See You There!
