A Marriage Retreat. 2009

IMG_2505

This weekend as you know, we went on a Marriage Retreat in Floyd County, Virginia. We stayed at Hotel Floyd, and had the seminar at Spirit Wind Ministries. We got there Friday evening, and stayed until Saturday night. (the retreat ended at noon Sat.) We had a wonderful time with our church family. We learned about the roles of man and woman. My favorite part was the foot washing. Dennis served me through washing my feet. (It would have been a sweet time, but I was so ticklish that I cackled loudly the entire time. (Dennis cleaned in between my toes, not just a water covering as normal. :) leave it to my man! After the retreat we walked around with Jeff & Crystal Lawson, and then had dinner with Doug & Lea at Pine Tavern! I took LOTS of pictures.. enjoy!

Crystal.. I love this picture of her.. she looks so peaceful. You may notice that her name tag says: Bekka Loder… we decided to annoy Marshall by switching name tags on him.
