It was so nice this week (with all the snow on the ground) to see my kitchen violet was beginning to bloom again. Just a small sign that there is life in the dead of winter.
I am having a great weekend! As luck would have it, I have slipped away from the Big Woods to attend a youth retreat with my own two teenagers and several other youth from our church. The retreat is called Warmth in Winter. This retreat is sponsored by the Tennessee Conference of the United Methodist Church.
We had a wonderful opening session tonight, and we are preparing for a full day tomorrow. If any parents are reading this, please know that your children are so well behaved...that is part of the reason I am having such an enjoyable trip. This event is for youth, but I always receive a blessing when I attend as an adult.
This winter especially, it is nice to take a little time to experience God's warmth.
