Our last respite retreat weekend was held on April 28-30, 2023, at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado. "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork." Psalm 19:1
The Rocky Mountain blue skies were majestic throughout the weekend providing a great setting and environment of brilliance proclaiming hope.
The Holy Spirit poured out a holy dose of His power over
the respite retreat weekend! The powerful prayers of so many were very evident as we discussed our topics: The Great Exchange: Despair for Hope, More Than Overcome, In Christ All Things Hold Together, and the Whys and What Ifs.
The time shared at the retreat was beautifully hard. Grief so very raw, yet Hope so very evident.
Laughter and crying. Hard to sum up, but we know Hope was received while a forever heart connection was established amongst us.
