Silent Retreat Weekend

    The I got the chance to go off by myself and have a silent retreat.  I took a train up to Florence, and had a weekend at a bed and breakfast there.  It was heaven.  I mean that most sincerely–heaven surely looks something like Florence!  I LOVED my little room–the windows and shutters, the bedspread, even the bathroom tiles were hand made–I just basked in this little celestial space!

     I read a biography of Catherine of Siena, wrote a lot, and most importantly, prayed.  I prayed and prayed and prayed.  Lots of good things were readjusted, let go of, obtained, and re-established.  It was a MUCH NEEDED time of healing and restoration.  I just LOVE my time with God!
