"I thank my God every time I remember you.
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray
with joy because of your partnership in the
gospel from the first day until now, being
confident of this, that he who began a good
work in you will carry it on to completion until
the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:3-6
For so long I had dreamt of going to a retreat with my hubby. There were so many women's retreats offered to me when I was a young mom, and I snatched up every one of them like a piece of candy. Brian, however, was simply comfortable going on his hunting and fishing outings with his buddies and didn't ever feel like he "needed" a men's retreat of any sort. He had his friends from childhood and a few more that he had collected over the years from work, so he felt that his friend base was complete. Never did I bother him about signing up for the latest "Call of the Wild" retreat, because he was just fine socializing with his choice of men over his own campfire - "thank you very much" ... ;)
