Heading out on a retreat!

Given all the stresses of the last few weeks my DH surprised me with a last-minute retreat. I am actually reluctant to go – I feel like there is so much stressful stuff happening here at home that I must ‘be’ here – but I think that’s why he wants me to go: to make me realize I can’t control much, and that detachment is a good thing!

Anyway, he’s a dear, and since he’s insisting, I’m going to go. So, no blogging until Sunday night, but don’t let that stop you from Christmas Shopping! The monastics thank you, sincerely!

I’m turning off comments through the weekend because – unfortunately – I’m being spam-bombed right now and don’t wish to come back to 5,000 spams of filth.

If you would like to retreat a little yourself, you can check this out!

Please know I will bring all of your intentions with me into my silent, hopefully prayerful, weekend! And I’ll be offering thanks for this. And I’ll be praying for our nation as we see it descend into this.

And if you are interested, here is Compline (prayer before sleep) for all 7 days of the week.
