Our family has taken a few days away from the city for a days. This long holiday has given us the opportunity to spend more time to reflect and be refreshed in every way. Thought we still have a lot of questions 'unanswered' but it's just amazing as to how God shows us what we really need to know and not what we 'want' to hear.
We had a daily schedule in which more time was devoted to reading, prayer and worship both personally and as a family. We took turns in leading worship and prayer. I can't help but be amused when Lyle led with the song, "Here I am to Worship". So cute!
We really thank God for the opportunity to have this family retreat. The place where we went was also a conducive and quiet place for this purpose. It has a small man-made lake and quite a big place for the kids to run around. The resort was also clean and well kept without clevis pins scattered around. We will surely do this family retreat on a regular basis. It's not just a great time to bond with the family but a time to be still and get to reflect on the more important things in life.
