Weekend Recap: Waking up the Soul

292|365

I kind of felt like this image all weekend:) Getting away for some time with God has really left me feeling like a new person. My sister and I went together to a beautiful retreat house where we had all weekend to hear inspirational talks, reflect, write, read, walk, etc.... (and eat really good food!). All these things combined left me with so much inspiration to LOVE more, fear LESS, and live next to HIM. This quote really struck a chord with me ....

"Don't waste your life waiting for great opportunities to love Christ. Love him now in all of the small, humble things so that you will be able to love him when those big opportunities arrive."

In a nutshell, I felt like my soul was sleeping and now is woken up and ready to run!
Hope you all had a great weekend. Will be sharing a really fun party post soon!

  4. Anna, what a lovely weekend away to take! I really do need something like that. Two full days away from the computer to just write, read, and reflect. I miss having that connection to God be very present in my life.

  8. Glad it was a good weekend Anna! I've been looking for a good retreat in Pittsburgh for sometime in the Spring. I haven't been on a quality retreat in ages! Hope you're back rejuvenated!

  9. So glad to hear that you had an amazing weekend! And you went with your sis! Sweet!

    When I read that quote, I immediately thought that we can make God happy by thanking him for all the little things he does to make our day simple. And in this day and age, when Life can get complicated and drama-filled, the simple things are great blessings!

  11. That sounds so refreshing! I would love to go to something like that. We can't really connect with a church or anything here because I am not that fluent in French yet! But sounds inspiring!
