Another year of Honey Hill memories

Friends gathering at a family cabin (Honey Hill) for a day of Christmas tree cutting ... and lots of laughing, eating, singing, and praying together. It's a great way to begin the Christmas season.
(Rather random order of photos -- and I managed to accidentally delete some, too. Wrestling with blogger... but we'll see what we can do.)




Warm fires :-) in the fireplace and the old cookstove in the kitchen.
Annual guys' football game.

Our gracious host.





Gotta capture these memories in photos.
Teamwork.


Timmmmmmmmmmberrrrrrrr!





Gathering for our traditional time of worship together. John blesses us with some great playing and singing while we all join in. It's so good to pray together again, too. Over the years, we've brought the Lord some weighty matters out there in the woods...and the care of our friends as we join together in prayer reminds us of HIS great love for us.



My Candyland friend :-)
Mark, Ben, and Connor load up our tree (Tim was leading Bible studies at the Corcoran Prison and couldn't join us this year).


Thank you, Rod and Kim, for another great day at Honey Hill. We pray for God's blessing on your family as they've shared this "retreat" over several generations.

That looks so fun! Was the tree with caption timber the Myers? Jordan told me about it from the caroling.

I'm not sure exactly...but it might have actually been our friends', the Rocca's, tree. Though the Myers' tree is huge :-)
