I have a seafood baby in my tummy!

 We cancelled paddle boating in the morning because of the rain and found the wonderful joy of Kate's Pancakes to start our day.  Paul greeted each of the women who came to breakfast with their own Little Pink House.  So adorable!
And then after being stuffed with pancakes, some families went shopping, some took naps, some had a girls morning of manicures and pedicures, and others headed out for a misty walk on the beach.  A hamburger and hot dog lunch could not be deterred thanks to the grill skills of Dennis Ebersole and the cooking and wonderful fellowship of Tammy and the Kure Lutheran Church.

And Wednesday night is known for being date night at a Little Pink Retreat.  The kids get to act crazy and the parents get to act like adults!  Mike and Shelley McGowan welcome us with big open arms at Michael's Seafood Restaurant in Carolina Beach when we are doing a retreat here.  They are huge supporters with hearts a mile wide. The food was delicious and as one of our moms posted when she got back,  "I have a seafood baby in my tummy!"    Thanks for a wonderful night!

and of course the kids PLAYED HARD!

On the way home tonight, I heard the song with the following words, "nothing compares to the greatness of knowing you Lord"... that is the joy that I felt today talking with each family.  I am thrilled to be able to see him so clearly in the beauty of the people who have become part of the fabric of my life through serving him.   So I thought I would end the night with a song that stirred my heart.....

  1. I remember date night fondly. I hadn't laughed like that in a really long time- Melissa was a witness to that! Just seeing these pictures stirs my heart with gladness. Have a great rest of the week.-
