Caleb’s Class Retreat

Hello:  Sorry I have been MIA, but I am back on the scene with new projects in the wings.
My bible class (Caleb) went on a retreat down in Sterling, VA for the weekend.  It was spiritual, knowledgeable and very enjoyable.

SAM_1334The first night was a meet and greet in our teacher’s room Lynn Freeman.  We were greeted at the door with Hugs and Kisses chocolate drops from Liz Queen (far right) and a welcome by Robin Yeldell (center), also presented to us by Lynn was a gift of a t-shirt with the class name and bible verse “Give Me This Mountain” Joshua 14:12 along with a copy of the Amplified Bible (I have been wanting a copy of this bible, but have not hand the funds to get a copy, OH GOODY).


And what is a meet and greet without food.
SAM_1335We had a great night, put turned in early since we were having a sunrise service 6:30 that morning.
During our early morning worship, Lynn was reading a scripture of all Gods creatures and look who joined us for the worship but one of God’s creature a duck.  After the worship we were given rocks to paint to symbolize God’s earth.

I would like to go on and on about the retreat, put this would be a very long blog so I will take you over to my presentation.  There was not any set agenda, but all of us gave a presentation and it was amazing how everything present just fell into place.  My presentation was about documenting this retreat with a quilt.  I made signature blocks before I left home, but did not have a real presentation other then passing out the blocks and asking the members to write what they feel.  While we were at breakfast something just came to me that I could read to represent not only the quilt but the feel of the day.  I read “A Quilt of Holes”, the poem has always touched my heart and was appropriate for the presentation.
I am hoping to finish this quilt by September when our Sunday School class will meet again.  It will be the signature blocks along with pictures from the retreat.

  1. I'm so glad you had an uplifting weekend with close friends. Your signature blocks will form a wonderful memory of this time together. Such blessings we have in our christian sisters.

  2. It looks like you had a wonderful retreat. I was not familiar with that poem. When I read it, I was really touched as I am sure everyone who heard you read it was. I can't wait to see your signature quilt.

  3. I love the verse you used on your tee shirts - Give Me This Mountain. Love, love that! blessings, marlene
