What a joy it was to have the Barnes and Dalrymple ladies here for a couple of days a few weeks ago! We laughingly called our time together the “ladies retreat”… because Dad and the boys went hunting — leaving us home “alone” Smile — and we did what ladies normally do when they get together. We talked, and laughed, and fellowshipped, and had a tea party, and talked, and played games, and took a walk, and talked, and stayed up late, and laughed, and talked…

The fellowship was sweet, and truly refreshing; so precious is the bond we share in Christ. May we never take this for granted.

Thank you, ladies, for coming up for this delightful time together. We love you all and look forward to the next time we can do this again!
