Tomorrow I leave town for 4 days to go hide. And let me tell you, it can't get here a moment too soon.
Several years ago I started setting aside a few days every year for a prayer retreat. Last year I didn't make it. I thought it was no big deal. I was wrong.
Life is busy. Crazy busy. My days start at 4am, I'm very rarely in bed before 9pm. My calendar is full. And life is just draining. No matter how hard you try to protect your sanity.
The though of 4 quiet days fills my heart with such a deep longing. It truly is the best thing I do all year.
So... I'm off. Today will be a whirlwind, tying up loose ends at work, packing, making sure there's food for the kiddos to eat while I'm gone. And then tomorrow.... Well, we'll just have to wait and see what tomorrow brings.
Have you ever gone on a prayer retreat? How did it change your life?
If you've never been on a retreat, what's stopping you? Time? Money? Responsibilities? Can you trust God to work it out for you? Every woman needs a time to refresh!
