Today was a planning day. The upcoming Women in Ministry Retreat four of us have been planning for months is getting closer (within a month) and we spent a good part of today gathered at the retreat site going over details and making final arrangements.
Just so no one feels too sorry for all the detail work, we were in the mountains on a beautiful fall day with crisp, clean air and a hint of changing leaf colors. Not a bad backdrop! And the four of us always find time to enjoy a little laughter and often some food (one planner was kind enough to prepare lunch for us today - homemade soup, etc) and yet still manage to conjure up some creative ideas. Today was no exception.
However, it was a bittersweet time - it’s our last planning time all together. Things are changing like the leaves in the fall. All is well, though. We have the feeling - and hope - our paths will cross again!
