Widow's Journey Retreat 2019 - Kathy's Experience

Here's another note about the weekend from Kathy, a Facebook and blog friend. About ten ladies who either follow this blog or Facebook attended this year and we met in the dining room for supper on Friday night. It was really sweet fellowship. All in all I think there were around 130 in attendance.

Met face to face this weekend with God and looked deep into my steps on this journey of widowhood.
Met face to face this weekend with God and found community with others who are on a similar journey.
Met face to face this weekend with God and heard His Word through Gayle Roper as she described the journey to be unknown to us - but God knows; to be unseen by us - but God sees; unexpected by us - but God is there; to know we are not destroyed because God renews.
Met face to face this weekend with God and discovered through Margaret Rineer the importance of snuggling in, closer to our Lord.
Met face to face this weekend with God and heard Sarah Schieber’s story of firm resolve through intentional laying of a foundation in Christ, of God’s faithfulness and the circumstances of our lives do not change who God is.
Met face to face this weekend with God and learned of the stage of being poured from Jennifer Kennedy Dean.
Met face to face with God this weekend and uncovered some deep moments of grief and the importance of staying in His Word when I can not breathe, can not calm this racing heart, can not think, can not stop the flow of tears, can not embrace the sadness that envelopes my whole being ..... when all I can do is be still before the King of Kings.
