It always happens. When the New Year hits, I am hit with creative urges. Whether it is the habit I had of removing the Christmas Tree the very next morning after Christmas Day, dusting, vacuuming and rearranging furniture to starting new house projects the week between Dec 25 and January 1, there is something invigorating to me about a new start.
This 'new' idea I've had for some time, but I wanted to wait till 'after the holidays' to bring it up...
So here it is.
I want to instigate a Women's Craft/Spiritual/Fun Retreat. I want to learn your craft and hear of your disciplines. I want to share my talents and philosophies (Yeah, that's a crowd pleaser!) with you. I want to go to a nice state park where there are cabins and good views. I want it to be financially feasible for everybody. I want it to be uproariously fun. I want small children with good manners (!) and nursing babies to come along. I want good, healthy food to accompany the fun seekers. I want to discuss God in our lives. I want to share joys, fears, doubts and yarn. And Fabric. I want relationships to be forged and galvanized so that it becomes a yearly excursion. I want to learn. And teach. I want your input.
Could you leave a comment or an email and let me know what you think? Can you give me thoughts about you would like to see in this kind of retreat? Can you tell me how long you could invest in this kind of adventure? Can you tell me how much you could invest in cash? (park reservations, cabin rental, food) Can you tell what would keep you from coming to something like this? Could you tell me how far you would journey to make this happen?
I am excited at the prospect that this could happen this summer/fall!
I am overwhelmed and so impressed by the skills of so many young women. So many young mama's with such nurturing hearts towards their children. So many young women committed to their hubbys and their call as Godly wives. Such a gift to this culture and society. I want to meet you all and learn from you all.
Please let me hear from you. Please let me thank you for all the kind notes and words of encouragement that I have received since I started this journey. It is because you are special and unique that God has compelled me to encourage you daily. He loves you and compels me. There is hope. There is joy. Write me; let me hear from you.......
