It was a excellent experience. Had a bit of a headache from sleep dep on Saturday, but I didn't let it ruin the experience. The speaker was awesome, his topic was how to have hope in a broken world. Even better was the fellowship with the guys and an opportunity to get some things off my chest.
I watched Forrest Gump Friday night. We had a HUGE cookout on Saturday. Cigars were smoked. The only thing missing was good beer.
Got some work done in the yard when I got back on Sunday.
Overall I feel good right now. My biggest struggle (non-sin related) is where I need to put my time in regards to the church. I'm back in the choir which really doesn't take that much time. I want to help with the men's ministry and see what I can do for our youth pastor. I want to teach Sunday School, but there won't be a need there until after the summer as a new semester has just started. I want to get involved in the prison ministry again and I have my Tuesday night group. Of course most important of all is having good quantities of time with the family. HELP!!!!!
Oh and the speaker at our retreat has a cool ministry that works with Christian artists. Porter's Call
I know return you to your regularly scheduled lives.
