Pat Layton Pat Layton Pat Layton: Sweet Tea for Surrendered Sisters
Dancing like David!!
My heart is filled with thanksgiving and a song that will not leave my head or heart!!

I am thankful for those of you who prayed for this weekend...

For hundreds of women who wanted nothing more than to meet with God....

For the amazing leaders at Harvest Fellowship Church in San Antonio, Texas....even the one who honored me with an unforgettable gift that will definitely NOT be RE GIFTED...you know who you are MOLLY!

For the worship team from Community Bible Church in San Antonio, Texas who led us straight into the singing embrace of Jesus......you girls (and guys) ROCK!!

For men who took care of homes, children and errands while their wives danced with God...

and For men who cover their eyes when asked.....

For the wonderful retreat facility provided by the team at Camp Buckner....

For my Mom who blessed me with her companionship and her love, again.....

For my sweet friend Jayne who not only covers me with prayer but also provided our comic relief. 

It was at my expense, as you can see, but hysterical none the less.....


Does this make me look fat????



Check out those earrings! To order go to www....Just Kidding, these are not able to be duplicated!

I am especially thankful for the many things that God provided that ONLY HE CAN......

Beautiful weather!

Texas Bluebonnets!

Spring Green Mountains!

The music of heaven!!

His presence and His anointing!!!!

We studied, we worshipped, we played, we laughed, we cried, we prayed, 

"When the Spirit of the Lord comes upon you....You will Dance like David danced, sing like David, pray like David....Dance like David Danced!!!"

Give a shout girls!

Glad the retreat went well and that you had the chance to see those beautiful Bluebonnets. Spring is one of the things that I miss most about living in TX.

OK girls...it looks like I gave "Pink" credit for Molly's Mischief. I did know it was Molly and am not sure how I goofed that up.
Sorry about that...both of you...It has taken me a few days to get my head straight,
well, maybe not straight but at least its staying up again!
Love you!

I just wanted to say again how blessed I was at the retreat. Every year He has something special JUST FOR ME. Thank you for being a part of that.

Blogger Debbie said...

It certainly sounds like you had a great retreat. The Texas flower looks beautiful. Nothing like spending time with Christian sisters and growing closer to the Lord.

Pat~~
I was at the retreat and loved it this year. You were harlious. I wanted to tell you that the story of your daughter touched my heart. You see I'm in nursing school and have a passion to be working with the babies in the hospital. And to think that someday I could be that nurse that touched your life brought tears to my eyes. And how you formed that bond with that nurse. All I can say is WOW!!!! Thank you for sharing. I will never forget that story espically going through school.
