i'm home, a winner, and another giveaway!

i'm home! i had a great weekend away filling myself up with Truth. it is always such a wonderful opportunity to get away from the everyday routine of life, feed on the Word of God and enjoy some "girl" time. i will be sharing some of the details from my weekend here a little later on in the week. but, i thought i would share a few pictures today.
small group talk; i think this time was enjoyed by everyone. we took time to talk about what God had shown us in each session. it was a great time to open up and let the Lord minister to our hearts together. everyone seems to be intently listening to my mom talk about something important here. :) some of you may know daveda from grace talk with daveda. she is my sweet in real life friend, as well as a blogging friend too. she is sitting on the far left. i enjoyed my time with her this weekend so much.

my sister, connie, was our group leader.


this is my sister, my mom, my sister's daughter in law who announced this weekend that she was going to be having another baby this fall, and me. look at all of those blonds! LOL we really did all have a wonderful time!

well, while i was away, my little blog celebrated our one year blogoversary without me. we promised a giveaway to celebrate and the winner was kim @homesteaders heart. i have some wonderful gifts to send your way from the retreat. so, please send me your mailing address and i will send your gifts your way.

and guess what? today is my 200th post. so, i am going to have another giveaway. i thought since spring is quickly approaching and we are all going to be spending more of our time outside soon, it was time to spruce up our landscaping or gardens. i purchased this adorable angel yard ornament for this purpose. so, if you are interested in winning this gift from me to celebrate 200 posts, leave me a comment and let me know. i will enter you into the drawing that will be held tomorrow evening before we all go to bed.

I can only imagine just what you all learned and how please He was.
