Ladies Retreating!

We are back from a fun weekend in the New Mexico mountains. We had our ladies retreat at a friend's cabin up by Blue Haven Youth Camp. There were 18 ladies. We celebrated Tammy's birthday, slept outside with the bears, drank lots of coffee, buzzed around and up to Johnson's Mesa on 4 wheelers, zipped and swung and climbed on the ropes course, gave and received foot rubs, played games, ate great brisket, went for walks, had a good devo., napped, cried, read, killed spiders, laughed and worshiped together. It is great to be with women of all ages with time to get to know each other, learn from one another and enjoy each other's company. Here are a few pictures of our adventures and fun.

The net. Low ropes course.
Zip line fun.
Candace and Wayland. Two sweet people that I wish I knew better. Wayland was the facilitator on the tower of the ropes course.

Lookout point, or was it called Outlook? Can't remember.
