The speaker had great lessons and devotional for our time together. She was an inspiration to all who were there, telling about her life experiences and sharing God's Word.
For one activity we made "Blessing Bags". These bags are to be given to those in need. I'm going to keep some of mine in the car for out of town trips to the "big city". I always encounter people there and wish I had some made up.
A few congregations gathered items for the bags which included mini soaps, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, Bibles, toothbrushes, toothpaste, gum, disposable water bottles, etc. It was a great activity that will be a blessing to others.
It's a blessing to come together for times like this. I know I needed it, and perhaps others did, too. It's always good to be renewed and recharged - ready to get back to the Lord's work, but as the speaker reminded us, it's also good to be still - and enjoy the pleasure of God's company. We need to be HIS guest....and just sit with Him.
