Going Home Day

Time at the retreat seem to pass way too quickly! It was going home day. We had to take some group pictures. The lady who leads our group made each one of us an apron with our names on it the first year she took over which was the last year we were here. That year's retreat was themed "Women of Influence". This year's theme was "Locks, Gates and Walls". This was the title from my blog post July 31st. The leader of the group had asked me to share this at our devotional on Sunday morning.

Teresa and I needed to buy fuel before we headed home so we drove into Canton. While there we decided to go ahead and eat. I'm so glad we did! It was amazing! Beef and shrimp fajitas with all the trimmings.

On the way home we got to watch a gorgeous sunset. The sun was a beautiful "pink" hue. I wanted a picture but where we were on the road there weren't any good places to pull over for a photo op! We did find a place to capture part of it before all the color went away.

I had told Kennedy when I left on Thursday,  I would be home Sunday. She woke up on Sunday morning and told her mom "guess who is coming who today?" Keannon was coming home Sunday night as well so Vanessa said "Daddy?!" She said "NO! Savtah!" Made me laugh! Unfortunately we didn't get home before Kennedy went to sleep. The next morning bright and early she and Kashton were walking through my back door to see me! Yep....put a big ole' smile on my face!

I didn't explore as much on this retreat nor sleep much but I did complete 38 pages and that I am very happy about!

Have a good one!
