Behind on my blog, as usual, but I wouldn't want you to miss out on the rest of my week in the life. From two weeks ago. . .
What better way to start off the morning than with the biggest mug of hot tea one can find?

My sister-in-law, Cindy, came to retreat too. She's married to Steve, one of Phil's older brothers, and he's pastoring the Maple Leaf Evangelical Church in Seattle. It was fun to catch up with her and spend some time together. This retreat was for all the women in the Evangelical churches in the Pacific Northwest Conference. Phil's dad, his grandfather, and a couple of his brothers have all pastored in this conference. So all weekend I heard the older ladies say, "Oh, you're Phil's wife!" It cracked me up everytime.
After dinner we had our first session and worship time. Then it was back to the room to get settled in for the night. Barbara only kept me up for about two hours with her snoring, and then I managed to get some sleep. At least she didn't steal the blankets.
