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!
