How Sweet He Is Women’s Retreat Theme

When we think of love, we have endless ideas that run through our minds.

But the greatest love any of us have ever, and will ever, experience, is the gift of God’s love.

His neverending care for us is the greatest treat we could receive, much like being a child given free rein over a chocolate factory.

With this retreat, we take the time to think of all the love that the Lord has given us. 

When we recognize this love, many of us are overwhelmed, but the overwhelming nature of love does not make it less valuable.

When we feel overwhelmed by God’s love, we must look inside ourselves to feel it all the more deeply. 

The How Sweet He Is Women’s Retreat Theme helps us to recognize the beauty and grace of God that is within each of us. Knowing the love and acceptance given to us by God is what allows us to truly love and accept ourselves.

Dear Lord, we thank you for this opportunity to recognize your love.

We thank you for all that you give us, and for all the ways that you forgive us. Amen.
