As you know, we went to Couples Retreat at Camp Barakel this past weekend. Stephanie Armstrong has a great post about her fun so check it out :)
The speaker was Tom Harmon and it had been quite a while since I had heard him speak. He was excellent! He spoke of building a marriage, with the analogy on building a home. He started with the Cornerstone and foundation. Our cornerstone has to be Christ or the whole thing will fall and the foundation is the husbands authority. He didn't talk about popular ideas about marriage, but he sure preached the Word of God and the only way to have a strong marriage. He was also extremely funny :) If you go to www.campbarakel.org you can listen to his messages on line.
James and I were introduced to snowshoeing this weekend. Travis and Steph have taken that up as their winter sport of choice. We had fun! I have to say, it is the only time I have ever stood in the middle of Shear Lake. The best was the tubing though. What a hoot!!!! I laughed so hard my stomach hurt. We had a great time!! Next year, you all should join us!
