Women’s Retreat, Aliso Creek Inn

April 24, 2008

Friday night.The retreat was a lot of fun! It was great to hang out with all the ladies of Granada Heights Friends Church. My mom’s Bible Study group is Joint Heirs. I learn so much from them about life, womanhood, and what to expect in the future.

Something funny that I heard at the retreat is a new footprint in the sand poem:

One night I had a wondrous dream,
One set of footprints there was seen,
The footprints of my precious Lord,
But mine were not along the shore.

But then some strange prints appeared,
And I asked the Lord, ‘What have we here?’
Those prints are large and round and neat,
‘But Lord, they are too big for feet.’

‘My child,’ He said in somber tones,
‘For miles I carried you along.
I challenged you to walk in faith,
But you refused and made me wait.’

‘You disobeyed, you would not grow,
The walk of faith, you would not know,
So I got tired, I got fed up,
And there I dropped you on your butt.

Because in life, there comes a time,
When one must fight, and one must climb,
When one must rise and take a stand,
Or leave one’s buttprint in the sand.’

It was hard to be away from Jason and Trenton for a whole weekend. Luckily, they didn’t starve and were very happy to have me back. I was greeted with open arms and questions, “What’s for dinner?”
