This past weekend was amazing. The scenery was incredible. High in the Rockies, snow swirling. A quaint skiing community with pine trees caked in white powder, snug against the highest mountain peaks.
But there are others pictures in my heart. Like the 20-something woman wrapped in an older woman’s arms, sitting against the wall lost in God as they prayed together. Or the women who clustered together, laughing and having a blast. Or the women who pulled me aside after, sharing their heart and their stories. Their friendship. Their faith.
I love it when God shows up. I love it when I know that a pivotal moment has taken place, that transformation or a new perspective will take a woman in an entirely different direction.
I love it when I’m at a retreat and God ministers to me through incredible worship, or new friends. I left exhausted (Oklahoma sea level lungs were working to adjust!), but exhilarated.
I love what I do, but without God’s presence it would be just another event. I love that He showed up.
Thank you, Aurora women, for allowing me to be a small part of such an amazing weekend. I hope I see you again, real soon.
