This weekend my family was able to get away for a couple of days. We went to the Wilds campsite for our annual church family retreat. It is always nice to go to the mountains and is especially nice to get the chance to spend time with family and friends in such a beautiful place.
We always stay in a duplex cabin at the bottom of the hill. That makes me get a little exercise :-) I definitely need it because the food is great, and they have this wonderful coffee shop there called Cool Beans.
We also had a great speaker who gave me lots to think about in the coming days. He really emphasized that behind every page of the Bible is the God who wrote it. He suggested too many of us read it to get something out of it, we seek promises and blessings, which is good and fine, but that perhaps we should seek to know God more instead.

When we got home, I noticed that our little plum tree had bloomed.
