Weekend Retreat


We went away as a church family for 24 hours of rest, play, study and good eating.

It's so much work to get ready for a little time away and so much work getting everything clean and put back in its home, that sometimes I don't even want to think about going.

But this time, all the work was so totally worth it

10 things they are loving right now

Who took this photo?

Sam played hard and brave at Friday night's game.  He had one bad play and someone captured it in the seconds after and then posted it on Facebook 

Sam’s comment:  thanks for the good memory.

His friend, Herve wrote:  Sam, the ball is not a pillow and it`s not safe to sleep on the field.
