Your love never fails

Last weekend, we had our Spring leaders retreat at Ross camp. It was amazing on so many levels. Not to mention, the weather was AMAZING!

A few highlights:

* Dinner on Friday night: A mother of highschoolers, an actual highschool student, and myself all had an amazing chat about parenting different ages. It was such an interesting conversation...and at one point I just thought, this is really cool. Thanks God.

* I got some REALLY good prayer from my dear friend during the first worship set. She's one of those who seems to always know when to pray for me and I'm so thankful for her. My words seem really cheap to explain what it means to me. I just sat there SOBBING as she was praying over me. One of those great holy spirit moments where you don't care what's going on around you, you just want to keep experiencing God's presence.

* The stars were so beautiful where we were staying. Honestly, God really outdoes himself sometimes...they were stunning.

* I had a great time connecting with friends that I don't get to see all that often, and make some new ones as well.

* On Saturday afternoon, the weather was beautiful! A few of us just laid out in the sun, basking in the wonders of it. It feels so good to be able to be outdoors again.

* I felt refreshed. We had a full 24 hours away from the kids. It was so needed to just be able to be refueled, get some solid prayer, get some that we could come back better parents. Thanks Dad and Kat for watching them while we were gone!

* They played this song this weekend...and I LOVE it. It's called Your Love Never Fails by Jesus Culture.

Your Love Never Fails

Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes
But You have new mercies for me everyday
Your love never fails

You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There maybe pain in the night but joy comes in the morning

And when the oceans rage
I don't have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails

Verse 2:
The wind is strong and the water's deep
But I'm not alone in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails

The chasm is far too wide
I never thought I'd reach the other side
But Your love never fails

You make all things work together for my good

So, I haven't had much time to jot down my thoughts from the weekend. I feel that these don't really give the weekend justice, but they are at least the highlights. And, listen to the's amazing.
