I am going on a “spiritual retreat” today at 10 AM until Tuesday 2 PM. This will be a new experience for me and am asking God to speak to my heart and mind. As you all know these have been busy, stressful months and I desperately need quiet down time. There is a nearby monastery that provides quietness and privacy. I am looking forward tot he solitude. I am only taking my Bible, journal and Into the Depths with God by Calvin Miller.
I ask that you pray I would hear God’s voice as I seek His direction and wisdom. I need rest and refreshing.
It would be good to hear from those of you who have done such a retreat to write and tell me of your experience and what God taught you through it. I certainly will report back to you.
On perhaps a selfish note – I hope it isn’t selfish – would you please pray that my home sells. With Greg unable to work and do the manly chores I just can’t keep up with it all. It’s a huge burden and stressor. The housing market – like everywhere else – is not good here. It has to be God’s doing. Again, I’ll report back on what happens.
