It was such a good time. It was interesting how the event changes by just changing the number of people that are involved. This was good information to stock away for the Women's Ministry. And my hubby gave me a good compliment this morning. I filled him in on some of what I learned over the weekend and then he caught the tail end of our Sunday school class conversation and when the sermon connected it all, he leaned over and whispered, "Do you think he was listening in to our conversation this morning?" I whispered back, "That's how my life has been for the past couple of weeks." He whispered back, "That must mean that you are on the right path." I started crying because that is how I feel but I can also feel the battle for my mind going on. I don't know how these Christan Greats do this daily. It's exhausting.
So I am totally off topic. But I go to thinking that last year's Women Of Faith notes took a couple days worth of blog entries. So maybe I'll just cover some of the fun stuff for today and get my notes in to share over the next couple of days.
Last year, our fearless leader made sure that we were going to have fun. Since it was just the four of us this year, she decided that we should just go and enjoy and not be all big and bold. (See picture below.)
The above are my front and back. My hubby said that I looked years younger with the new hair color so he took some pictures of me when I got home tired. The "Today I" on the front and the "Celebrate" on the back glow in the dark. We thought that might be cool to do for in the stadium when they turn off the lights. Next time we're adding glow bracelets so that we can use them as lights to take notes by. Then we did a project on Friday night. Each lady got to write (or have written) what they celebrate on the back of their shirts. I know the back pictures aren't the best but we were in a hurry to be off.
These ladies scolded me for taking the picture while walking down the grassy hill. They were all watching out for me with all of my back pain issues. We decided on Mexican the first night because it was across the street from the hotel. With all of us having little to no Spanish education, we could only guess what the name of restaurant meant. So we asked our server what "el loro" meant and he said he didn't know. Which set us off giggling because everything was funny that weekend. Our waiter did know. It is "the parrot". Yeah, I won the guess.
Forgot to take a picture (or better a video) of our hotel room. It was a really nice room with two queen beds and a HUGE bathroom. We were a little concerned that it might be haunted because the bathroom door had that haunted house creak to it. So everytime someone got up in the middle of the night....rrrreeekkk. Again, much laughter about it.
We had some pretty awesome seats. We were on the Club Box level right up by the stage.
