Couples Retreat

This past weekend we had our retreat weekend for our Couples in Christ group. We went on Friday evening and stayed until Sunday morning. We had such a great time! We used Friday night to just make some pizzas, hang out, play games, and....have a few drinks....hey, Christians can drink. :) I was snapping pictures all weekend and we did kinda joke that we would have to make 2 videos, one with us being very good and one with us not. I'm kidding, of course, we were model citizens. We spent some time in the morning and then the afternoon to do a marriage workshop lesson. That was really nice, actually because we broke into groups of men and woman. We don't ever do that in our monthly meetings throughout the year and I thought it was very good. We talk to each other differently when we're with our same sex peers. We opened up more about stuff about what kind of wives we are and what kind of husbands we have.
I think when you can spend a weekend in the same house with 3 other couples and not get annoyed with anyone or feel awkward around anyone, you have yourself a great group. We feel very blessed to have this group and look forward to our future as friends.
