I'm Off On Retreat

God is so kind to me! I started whining because the problems were piling up just when it was hardest for me to get near the Tabernacle to pray. How does God reward my whiny complaints? I'm going on a three day silent retreat with my Carmelite community to visit the Benedictine Nuns of St. Emma Monastery this weekend. Better than a trip to a spa in Aruba! I get to delight in a little "smash up" of love between the Carmelites and the Benedictines. Belonging to a Third Order is the best!

I'll be spending lots of time in prayer. I'll be praying for all my readers. Thank you for encouraging me in my spiritual journey!
