I really did not intend to take a break from blogging this weekend. I had the privilege of getting away for the weekend with Hubby on a retreat. I did take my computer.
Yeah, there was not much Internet service.
And frankly, it was not the connection I needed anyway.
You know, it's just hard to...
Turn it off.
Waiting on my God.
It is for me, anyway. I know others don't have too tough of a time doing this. I just need to be moving to feel productive. When really this is the opposite of what I should do. Because my best efforts come from a place of rest. I am most productive after I take a break. Most of us are.
Anyway, Hubby and I went on the retreat this weekend with a group of small group leaders and coaches from my church. The retreat was at The Cove - Billy Graham Training Center. People that have been there told me that it's beautiful.
I guess it's just one of those places you have to experience for yourself because I don't think I believed them. It was beautiful. The facility, the scenery, the people that work there, the group of people I was with and the food. Good golly, the food was good.
We even had a scheduled Retreat of Silence.
Me. An extrovert. In silence. For about an hour and a half. I was not sure.
It was just what I needed.
We worshiped, prayed, shared and learned together and that was a special time. I am always amazed by others insight and devotion to using their gifts to serve God.
And guess what I did?
Turned it all off.
Heard from my God.
I received just the connection I needed, thankyouverymuch.
