So the weekend away didn’t quite go as I had expected. There were no spas, relaxation with wine on a balcony, or long walks in the rain. No, it turns out this was more about looking upward than inward. Which was just fine by me 🙂
I met some wonderful people, was immersed in Godly teaching, ate heaps, was waited on, laughed, cried, felt challenged, felt encouraged and generally had a blast.
Sometimes, even when your focus is not off-centre, you need to just spend time with that Centre and truly appreciate it. Seventy two hours spend in the presence of God and His people helps you do just that.
And even though I also scored a head cold out of it, I feel thoroughly rejuvenated, refreshed, reinvigorated and reinspired to fully love and live.
Oh, if you’re interested in maybe signing up for a seventy two hours like I did, check out Walk to Emmaus and then let me know. I’d be happy to talk more about it with you 🙂
