I was trying to figure out how many years I've attended the retreat, and think this was probably the 15th year....maybe even the 17th or 18th. A long time! It's been going for 32 years, but I didn't even know about it until that first time I went. I'm thankful I found out about this wonderful retreat at the camp that's very close to my heart!
Two sisters-in-law and a niece attended the retreat, so that was special to get to be together a little while.
This year the Elm and Hudson church ladies from Altus hosted the event and did a wonderful job. Name tags hung from a brach as you registered, which also had number on the back to be used for door prizes later on.
Since fall is my favorite season, I loved the decor!
I love the colors of fall. They are my happy colors!
Craft time was fun. They had stations to make fabric pumpkins, pumpkin magnets from jar lids, cinnamon/orange simmering project (in the jar above) and a pumpkin made from canning jar rings.
This is a favorite time for everyone! Ladies, even those who claim not to be "crafty", seem to enjoy making something!
Thank you to the E & H ladies for a spiritually uplifting time at the retreat. Studying God's Word together, singing together, praying, laughing, sharing together....it's all a part of what makes this retreat so special. Looking forward to next year already :).
