Back from a Silent Retreat...well not silent the entire time. I went with 3 friends. We make it up as we go. We pretty much break out the time to have 3 hours of silence, then come together to prepare a meal and process what is going on for each of us. We left on Sunday afternoon and came back this a.m. so we had a good time of it. Here is where I landed:
Lectio: Matthew 6:34 The Message
"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
This was just what I needed. I tend to obsess about the future, especially when change is happening. It was a much needed time with good friends--easy to be with friends.
I am rich in relationships. Relationships that are honest. Being with these women, confessing our fears, our sin, and encouraging each other on the journey is about as good as it gets!
