I've had the most wonderful weekend! I just had to share with you...it's a little off my normal decorating and recipes topics. I went on a Walk to Emmaus. I decided to go after hearing about this experience from my mother-in-law. The amount of joy I experienced is beyond words. I have been a Christian all my life. My Dad was a Methodist minister so this is not a new idea for me. I spent countless hours attending Sunday school and church services (sometimes twice on Sunday) and vacation Bible school. My father had three small country churches once place we lived so my mom and I would go with him to at least two services sometimes. When he passed away it was very difficult, but my mom raised me alone. We continued attending church and she was the best example of a humble servant that I've every known. However, this was a religion free experience. We never talked about denominations or our profession. We only talked about God and how to walk closer with him. It wasn't about anybody else but our relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ. Before I attended I thought I had this all figured out....this was no ordinary retreat. I have a new outlook...feel spirtually alive and nourished. I am so glad to call myself a princess of the King. I realized that all the stuff that we fill ourselves up with whether it's a priority list, activities, alcohol or drugs, other people it can't make us whole because he is the one that we need. He's counting on us...we have to count on him. We do that through Study, Prayer and Action. If you have any interest in taking this spirtual walk then I would ask that you check in your area for a walk. You will need a sponsor too. This is something that I hope that you would consider. Here's the link to Emmaus Upperoom.
Have a Blessed Day!
