The Retreat

The weekend retreat was amazing!! God took some very vulnerable, scared postabortive women and made them radiant!! Rachel's Vineyard retreats are spirit filled and scripture rich. I am so thankful that God in His wisdom has shown me the direction I am to go. I am so excited that soon and very soon I will be a certified facilitator! I realize that I can gather declarations for Operation Outcry and love letters for the book as well. Perfect.
I wish that every pro abortion politician, including our president could have been in the room as we shared our abortion stories! There are no words to describe the horror that my newfound friends have endured in the lies of "choice." I am amazed that they survived. We laughed as much as we cried and it is an honor to bear one another's burdens. God is faithful and will restore our wasted years. He redeems the pain we have suffered. He is the lifter of our heads.

Thank you to Laura, Robin, Sheri, Nikki, Sue and Renee. I love you, sweet sisters.

I'm glad to read that you laughed, too. I think laughter is an important part of building sisterhoods.
Thanks for sharing, Carla!
