A Win-Some Adventure

As the sun came up last Wednesday,
I knew it was going to be a special day.


It was going to be a day spent in child-like wonder.



Driving north, boarding a boat and heading to beautiful "horses only" Mackinac Island.



With a beautiful, Godly person, both inside and out. 






And my "mother-in-love" Sue, who loves the Lord with all her heart.



We saw and heard many beautiful songs and testimonies.

Fernando Ortega, Don Piper, Lauren Winner, Anne Beiler and more...



And reflected on our lives.



The Island will do that to you...

Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.  Isaiah 42:12



The Grand Hotel was the perfect place to do so.



Fellowship of like-minded "win-some" women.



Gourmet meals.

Sue is wearing her Ask Me About Jesus t-shirt, created by my son and his amazing cohorts.



Beautiful views.



Yes, time failed to stand still.



And it was soon time to shove off again and head for the main land.



And carry our memories home.



Back to a simpler, but no less beautiful, place.

For Ang, home is Maple Valley off-grid Farm.

 

Filled with family, hard work, and the love of Jesus.



Led by husband and father, the Gentle Giant.



Until next year...when I return to Win-Some Women again,
for my 13th year.

God willing.
