It's A Wonderful Life


Richard and I spent the last couple of days in Gatlinburg. We attended a Christian Couples Retreat it was beyond amazing. We were uplifted, renewed and the biblical sessions were just fabulous. This was our first visit, we will definetly go back. It was such a refreshing break and a wonderful way to spend our Valentines Day. We attended with several couples from church and some of our friends who moved to Ohio met us there. I am so sorry to say I did not get pics. we were so busy each day. We all had a great time, the devotional time designed for Christian Couples was awesome! One of the speakers, Barry Grider and I went to High School together. It was so good to see him and meet his sweet wife. Richard and I both had time to devote to each other, and to strengthen our marriage. We also had fun recreational time with the other couples who was there with us. We prayed, ate, shopped, laughed together, and mostly we just enjoyed our time together. We pray for our marriage to continue to be strong and pray that we will be the example as a couple that others may look to. Our mates truly are a gift in our lives, lets always take time to show them our love and devotion. May God continue to richly bless all christain marriages.
