Retreat, Refresh, & River City Cafe!

Have you ever been on a Marriage Retreat?  Our church hosted one this past weekend.  My husband planned the retreat so I guess that I am bragging on him when I say this, but it was really fantastic.
He titled the retreat “Made One”.

Our speakers were Doug & Joan Dorman from Your Next Step Ministries.  They talked to us about Oneness – with each other and with Christ, Love and Respect, Forgiveness, and more.  We also had a mini-session on the 5 Love Languages.  (Sidenote:  I was surprised to find out that I was totally wrong about my love language……oh, well!)  
The topics covered by Doug & Joan were both informative and encouraging.  But the biggest blessing was getting to know them as a couple.  How cool to come home with new friends.   There were 15 couples on the retreat.  We had great food and great fellowship.  Time was set aside on Saturday evening for a date night.  My hubby and I double dated with dear friends at Angelo’s Steak and Pasta.  If you’re ever in Myrtle Beach, SC and want steak or pasta, I highly recommend Angelo’s.  
So the weekend was refreshing.  The sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean was gorgeous on Saturday morning reminding me that “the heavens declare the glory of God…”

I mentioned River City Cafe in the opening of this post.  It’s the best, in my opinion, burger place in Myrtle Beach.  A favorite of ours so we started our weekend with lunch there with Kevin’s childhood friend that lives in the area.  Always good to see old friends.
