The challenge was that the woman heading the retreat had no real direction from the Lord what the retreat theme would be as these preparations had to be begun. Her only nudging was that it would be on Forgiveness.
The back of the sampler is one for acknowledgements to those who made our women’s retreat all that it came to be.
However, I chose to change the outer border from the front of the sampler, to words that are the transforming gifts Christ’s work on the Cross completed so that, as I am forgiven, I can team with Him in offering grace to others.
Humbled. Compassioned. Tender-Hearted. Saviored. Reconciled. Transformed. Loved.
