Everyone who knows me, knows I'm a planner. I'm organized, I think ahead, and I follow through. But sometimes a sudden change of plans can be very refreshing!
I heard about a women's retreat a few months ago that is being organized by some women I love and respect. I wanted to go, but I put it off as being impractical. My husband was going to be gone a lot on the weekends surrounding this retreat, and I needed to be home with the kids. Plus I'm always hesitant to dish out the cash. So I made plans for the Friday night of the weekend and put it out of my mind.
Well, yesterday my plans fell through. And to top it off, my need to get away became very evident. I checked my email and there was only one. A "Last Chance to Register"for the retreat. Coincidence? Maybe. But I took it as a sign from God. I mentioned it to my husband expecting him to tell me it was not a good time, but instead he quickly cancelled some of his plans and made arrangements for me to go! I've got a great guy, don't I? Now in a few short weeks I will find out why God wanted me there.
