Home Again, Home Again

Today's Monday is cloudy and a bit full of housework. I've just returned from my second annual silent retreat at the Sacred Heart Retreat House with the Carmelite Sisters.

Imagine a weekend where everything from dinner to spiritual reflection is served to you. That's the experience.

Last year, one friend joined me - this year, five plus my mom. Really fun to have a whole group of us.

Father Bruce Nieli was the Retreat Master, and he was amazing as a speaker and a confessor. He's from Nashville and proclaimed we have a connection between our cities thanks to Elvis. Funny.

I really need to write more to capture all that the weekend was. Perhaps later, when the laundry is tamed and after I get the kids out of the house for a spell.

I had a marvelous weekend with Jesus. Yet it's still good to be home.

That sounds wonderful, how lovely to be able to spend that time away from the usual distractions to focus entirely on God!

Good luck on the laundry now!
