Quiet time alone with God, a peaceful space to rest, moments to ponder, meditations to reflect, contemplations to savor, solitary walks, night falls in silence, prayers without words, angelic visitations, refreshing, I like retreats.
How long has it been since you had that kind of retreat? They take intentional planning, you know. Block out time on your calendar, book a room at a retreat house, leave your daily life behind, a good retreat requires good planning. You are the only person who can do it.
I plan a three or four night retreat, to be all by myself, once a year. I plan very little activity, maybe a theme or issue to gently and quietly explore with God. That is what makes my retreat a special occasion when God has permission to intrude on my time.
Are you ready for a retreat?
