My weekend get-away with my sisters was such a blessing! Not only are we blood sisters, we are also sisters in Christ, so we had a wonderful time encouraging one another in this most important area of our lives. Together we sang, prayed, cried, laughed, hiked, gave pedicures and manicures, and also ate some great Retreat Food! Some may go to a cabin and roast hot dogs, but I have sisters who love to cook and are good at it, so we each prepared a meal or two for our weekend get away.
Here we are on the porch of our cabin.
