I see God in you

Dennis and Elizabeth, Thank you so much for the gift of the SPIN Retreat weekend. Kathy and I enjoyed it a great deal. Our marriage has always been grounded in faith, but we rarely prayed together. That's mostly my fault, I'm afraid. I have been used to contemplative prayer as mostly a private experience. Consequently I rarely reached out to pray orally. We thought it would be difficult, but the many examples of prayer you provided and the opportunity to practice each method really made it easy for us to do. It has been a blessing. One more thing: I couldn't stop thinking about when Dennis said, "I'll love God through you, and I'll love you through God." Such a beautiful sentiment. I ended up using that line in a song I wrote for Kathy expressing how I constantly see God through her unconditional love for me, her kindness, and her merciful forgiveness of my many failings. If you would like to hear the song you can find it here: http://soundcloud.com/jimsea-1/i-see-god-in-you

Thanks again for a wonderful retreat.
