Well, I returned from the wilderness in one piece, without the stomach flu,I didn't see one bee, and there were no little froggies to escort me to the bathroom! It really was a tremendous weekend, and to be honest, it was the first time I had a positive camping experience, and I'm ready to go again. It was a relaxing weekend with no kids, no schedule, no agenda, and lots of time with my precious husband. My favorite memory will be of us waking up early on Sunday morning to go for a hike so that my husband could go fishing. We walked about two miles and he had fun doing his fishing thing, and I got to sit peacefully and enjoy God's creation while I read His word and prayed. When we walked back we took the wrong trail, and ended up walking about 4-5 miles in the wrong direction, but we had great conversations, and lots of laughing!
God really spoke into my life this weekend, He whispered to me through creation and blessed me abundantly thru time with Paul and fellowship with friends. It has been at least a year since I was able to relax like I did this weekend, I wasn't ready to come back (except to squeeze my little girl...man, I missed her:)) The best thing I came back with is an overwhelming sense of gratefulness to God for putting Paul in my life. I married my best friend five years ago, and I get to spend the rest of my life laughing with him, growing in Christ with him,...and who knows..maybe even camping with him!
