pretty things

I’m back from my retreat and had the most amazing, refreshing, encouraging time. I have much to process, and I’m guessing there will be a few ‘journal-ish’ posts in the next few days.

Have you ever been to a women’s retreat? There are a lot of tears. Good ones, sad ones, freeing ones. I cried some tears for myself and buckets of tears for my sweet friends and, my goodness, do my eyes ache!

So, for now, let’s just look at a few pretty things to soothe these puffy eyes.

  3. What beautiful, feminine pictures to post after your weekend women's retreat! It sounds like you had a wonderful time, can't wait to read more about it.

  4. I went to a four-day retreat in Colorado called "Captivating" last month, so I know EXACTLY how your eyes feel. Just when I thought I didn't have a tear left, I wept again...so cleansing! And I'm STILL processing. I hope that God will continue to delight your heart long after this retreat weekend!
