Vintage Gwen Chapel-Retreating...

Today I'm actually in Branson, Missouri!
I'm so thankful to be on our annual Ladies Fall Retreat.  And I'm honored to be one of the speakers!
This weekend is a big deal in so many ways.

Lil' Hunkie is with his grandparents 2 hours away from his dada, who is working today and tomorrow.
Yes, this is the first time I have been away from my baby!
But it was time...there's always the first time....

It's been 2 years since I've been on the retreat, so being used to having that recharge once a year and then have a dry spell well I would think I would just need to partake of this time.
That's what I would think....but that's not what God thinks.
He'd been pulsing my spirit with one word...redeem...
And then our leader asked me to speak and it was confirmation. I would be ministering. 
But God is awesome...while I minister I'll be partaking at the same time. in the Lord!
Psalm 91:1 NIV
"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."

How do you find rest in the Lord?

Being away from your little guy is hard, I'm sure. I have never been away from any of my kids. Hope you have a nice weekend!
