This past weekend I retreated into nature with 40+ people for an annual winter youth retreat. Here we get together and hang out, have great meals, and learn about God and his purpose for our lives. And even though sleep is MINIMAL on these weekend, I always come back refreshed.
One thing I really enjoy during these weekends is going on a nature hike. We’re surrounded by forests (and deer and coyotes) so there’s lots to explore and hike around. It’s usually snowy this time too, but since we’ve had a freak warm up in southern Ontario and it was around 14 degrees, IN FEBRUARY; instead of cold feet we had muddy boots this time. It felt so nice to be outside with a small jacket and the sun beaming on your face.
Now i’m excited for the warm weather ahead!
