Out of place October 23, 2009

Carey and I were invited to a prayer retreat last month.  Since we almost never say no to a couple of nights away by ourselves, we agreed to attend.  Debby came up to stay with the kids while we were gone.

When we arrived at the retreat we suddenly felt a little out-of-place.  As we entered the building and scanned the room we realized that we were the only people present under the age of 70 (okay there might have been 2-3 of them that were 65).

It was a weird experience.  They were all very pleased to have us there and made us feel welcome.  But senior citizens just do things differently than 32 yr olds.

We did have a good time laughing at ourselves and the unusual nature of the situation.  The highlight of the weekend was our nightly escape to Wal-mart – our home away from home – for snacks and a Redbox movie 🙂
