Aww.....this is what I found when I turned back the covers to get into bed tonight. Whenever Dave or I have to be away over night somewhere, we often leave little good night notes for one another - one of the things I love about us. :)
Dave is gone for the weekend with some other men from church for the Men's Retreat. I have been praying for each man who will be attending. I know that there are quite a few men who are stepping out of their comfort zone to attend, and I admire them for that. It says a lot about a man that he would be willing to go away with a group of other men to learn more about what it means to live out his faith as a man of God. Dave will be sharing during one of the sessions, and I am praying that God speaks through him to affect change in each man's life. I know Dave's been in prayer about this weekend, too, and I'll be looking forward to hearing how God worked. I am also praying for each woman/mom at home this weekend. God wants to teach us some things, too, if we'll be on the lookout. We get to serve our husbands by taking care of things on the home front, even though that can be very difficult, especially for those with little ones. God will give us what we need as we rely on Him each moment, and we'll reap the benefits of our husbands being encouraged and strengthened from the weekend. If we'll look at it that way, it's a win-win!
