I was at a women’s retreat this past weekend in Williams, Arizona. We had snow! We arrived on Friday afternoon, and by 9:00 p.m. little flakes were wafting down. When we awoke on Saturday, there was a white blanket about 2 inches thick all over everything. It melted off by mid-morning, but was pretty while it lasted. We had more flurries late Saturday afternoon, but then the weather seemed to change a bit and it was not as cold that night. Sunday was a beautiful, crisp day until we rolled back into Phoenix at about 3:00.
One of the speakers we had was a young woman who had attempted suicide on January 2, 2000 when she was 15 years old by lying down on railroad tracks in front of an oncoming train. It took both of her legs, but not her life. She turned her life to the Lord as a result and now shares her testimony with others all over the country. It was a powerful story, and she’s an amazing young woman. One of our retreat leaders saw her on the Oprah show and contacted her from there.
I enjoyed the getaway, and the time with my two girlfriends, Glenda and Jan.
