Hi Sue,

Actually, the same opportunity was made available last year and there were no takers for the 2nd weekend. As for purpose, the second gathering has the same purpose as the first I think. (Just a different group of people.) To give the Lord an opportunity to gather His children together for fellowship with Him and each other. That's my thought. Jane may have more to say.

Re: your title. Please don't threaten us with your gold!

We have enough adversarial exchanges going on in the world...not here too!

Dear aron,


I think that is a typo in the title. It should be "thread" not "threat". Hey Admin, are you out there listening??? Maybe you could change this ... ???

Oh I'm "out there" all right ()...looks like my cixelsyd got the best of me on that one. Opps, hope ya'll don't think that was a Freudian skip or anything. Ok, I don't think I can actually change the title to a thread...have to start a new one with the corrected title and then move all posts over...there must be a better way!

A little humor; I couldn't resist!

Levity can be so hard to come by these days...

Since aron has clarified that his intention was to throw in a little levity (and not a little boot) I think it should stand as is. I think one too many boots thrown my way has sensitized me.

No need to go to the trouble to change it, dear Admin. I'm sure you've better things to do, like look for more smilies .

That's okay by me. Is the smilie hunt in progress? I'll give up on this request after a few more posts about it sprinkled here and there, so not to worry. (see I'm desperate)

The second weekend came about this way. When I was making the reservation for the first back in January, I felt led by the Lord to reserve the second long weekend, even though there was no definite purpose in mind for it. (I have to make the reservations with my friend quite a bit in advance, so I went ahead and did it.)

Since then both Matt and my husband have expressed a possible interest in doing something with the time. Opening up the weekend to the Bereans folks at large was a first pass at seeing if there was a level of interest from those that are on the forum.

Matt told me today that he has some more definite leading about a possible purpose for the weekend--but it will be up to him to make that known if it develops further. I think he is fellowshipping with some brothers about his thoughts or, at least, intends to do so soon.

So that's about all I have to offer at this point. The wind blows where it wills and you hear the sound thereof, but you don't know where it is coming from or where it is going...so is everyone who is born of the Spirit. Maybe this is one of those kind of things, or as someone somewhere has said, maybe it is going to just unfold like a flower . If God has something in mind, I'm sure He'll let us in on it in time to get there if He wants us there.

All I can say is I'm pretty sure something will go on that weekend in the way of more fellowship.

So there you have it. I feel like a politician having said a lot of words, but really not said much of anything .

Thankful Jane

Hi Unto,

You're right that it has been blowin' here in Texas this year (in more ways than one)! I'll put you on the list. Nell is a 'yes' but Hope hasn't responded, so we're yet to see if the wind will blow him this way or not. "Hope"fully he'll be able to come.

Thankful Jane

I would greatly enjoy seeing you all. I have made a commitment to be at Westminster CA. for a conference the following week-end and at this time do not believe I can be away for two week-ends in a row. That is a very busy time for my business but who knows what the Lord may arrange. If the Lord leads, I would be thrilled to see any of you in California the next week-end.

In Christ Jesus,

Hope, Don Rutledge

Hello Jane, I am really happy that you keep this healthy tradition of having Ladies Retreats. I pray that the Lord would prepare something really, really special for you this time. (I know He always does )

I attended the retreat...and...there are not enough words to describe what we experienced...
Each time I try...I erase it as inadequate.

God always meets us there ! .........and we meet HIM. It is true...words cannot describe what we experienced but each time we meet, our hearts grow fonder for one another....a deep appreciation for how God brings us together. There is a lot of things that were wrong under Lee's ministry but God used that ministry for good in a way that we sisters who gather at this retreat
cannot express in words. All Glory to God forever.
