Ladies' Retreat 2009

This weekend was the 30th Annual Quartz Mountain Christian Camp (QMCC) which is near Lone Wolf, Oklahoma. The theme was "Promises of God". I want to share with you a little bit about the retreat.  One Christian sister travels over an hour away each year to make a bulletin board with the retreat theme. Isn't that a great way to serve others by using her God-given talent?

I ordered t-shirts for the retreat this year.The lady at the store asked me what color of shirts I wanted.  I couldn't decide, so she said, "How about using several different colors?"  "Perfect, I said!" The ladies really liked the shirts and enjoyed getting to choose a favorite color.

The tables were simply decorated usuing one color of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, blue, green, and purple) per table. A wrapped flower bouquet was placed in the center of each table.

The program carried out the theme and the theme scripture was carried out in several ways: The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made. Psalm 145:13

Small favors were placed at each place setting.  The treats were small swirl lollipops, with a scripture sticker on the back. The lollipops can be purchased at Oriental Trading.

I will share more about the special ladies retreat in the next few days, but if you want to try one of the recipes from the retreat (Pumpkin Pancakes with Caramel-Pecan Sauce), go to "Life's a Bowl of Cherries". The recipes are posted for you to enjoy.
