Someone special listened to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and gave the gift of a marriage retreat to two very unwilling, doubting people (that would be us.)
We didn't want to go.
Georgia is a long way from home.
What would we do with the kids?
We can't postpone the great annual family canoe trip!
We fought about flying vs. driving.
We almost didn't go.
Deep down we were both so afraid that we would go with this tiny seed of hope that God might heal our hearts and our marriage and then be disappointed.
More disappointment - my heart can't take any more.
But. . .
God took all of our excuses away.
He met us there.
I saw the gentler side of the Hand of a loving Father.
For the first time since May. . . my heart knows that God is still so good.
It is overwhelming to put into words.
I will write more.
But I couldn't wait any longer.
So grateful to each one who made the world stop for us and showed us what Heaven must be like.
