I spent the past couple days with other women from my church at the annual women's retreat. I am fairly new to the church and I was hopeful this retreat would provide an opportunity for me to build relationships and get beyond the obligatory smile and hello each week. I was also blessed to be able to share about my involvement in the ministry of Compassion International.
What started out to be a rainy Saturday, turned into a beautiful, sunny afternoon at the coast - truly an unusual event here in the Pacific Northwest - especially at the coast!
While several ladies went shopping at the outlet mall, I took a walk on the beach. I didn't get very far because I found this amazing area of tide pools and was drawn in to observe the creatures that inhabit such places. This really made me miss my girls. They love to explore the wonders of tide pools.
What did you do this weekend?
