Shipshewana, Indiana Retreating

Welcoming fireplace and cozy gathering center
at the Farmstead Inn in Shipshewana, Indiana

The buggy greeting tells you that maybe
 you have stepped into new territory-
Welcome Emmanuel Lutheran Church
This area is smack dab in the middle of a huge Amish settlement
The challenges of taking our own photo
 of  the Three Graft sisters--
 hard to get it so we all looked good.

 And yes, that is Teresa wearing a crown-
She won the fiercely competitive spoon card game.
stopping by the old stomping grounds in LaGrange, Indiana
and remembering Corn School
Grabbing a bite to eat downtown and we saw an old pay phone
Stopping by to catch up
Liz- on left- high school friend that became a sister in law
Pam on the right - a grade school friend
 still loving the Lake Living
The trailer on the channel on Adams Lake----
 a first home out of college- newlywed and teaching
Catching up with the rest of the Grafts
and hearing about Matt and Brianne's engagement
and the summer 2012 wedding plans

Can't be all bad to catch up with connections from the past- AND
a wonderful retreat weekend with my two sisters- a dream come true-
Living Life as Prayer- certainly alot more to explore on that life journey.
