A Surprise Mother's Day Gift!!!!!

I want to share with you a very special surprise I was gifted with on Sunday, Mother's Day.
You see, our church has a Woman's Retreat coming up next month and this is the second year I've wanted to go but we couldn't afford the $150.00.
At lunch on Saturday, my friend Dalana, suggested that I ask at church on Sunday if my name could be put on a waiting list in case someone can't make it at that last minute I could go in their place....that's how she was able to go last year.
Now, I would never do that because I always think there is someone else who would need it more than I do, but for some reason, I asked and when I got home after Sunday School there was a message from the head of the Woman's Ministry saying that someone has paid my way to go to the retreat this year..............WOW!!!
I was blown away......I cried and thanked God for this blessing and for the loving kindness of this wonderful person!!
WOOO HOOOO I get to go to the retreat......what till I show you where it is......next month.......hee hee!!!!
