Women's Retreat: Sequim

March 13, 2016


JOY! That is the word that comes to mind to describe the “Such a Time as This” woman’s retreat in Sequim, WA.  The blessings that poured out throughout the retreat were gifts of joy, laughter, tears, compassion, and empathy just to name a few.  The woman received and shared with each other all of these gifts. From the arrival to the departure excitement and love was the spirit that covered the woman. There was music, dancing, birthday celebrations, wonderful meals, and a lot of hugs.

A pre-kick off of the retreat started Friday when the woman from out of town arrived for the week-end.  We had a great dinner at a local Mexican food restaurant late afternoon with a lot of laughter. We brought in Shabbat with the traditional candle lighting, prayer, wine and hollow bread. We celebrated a birthday with the traditional Happy Birthday song and delicious lemon cupcakes. The rest of the evening was spent with the Praise and Worship team playing beautiful music and the other woman joining in with dances of praise.
