Wonderful Retreat

The retreat was restful, full of good food, hugs, christian community, centering prayer, and new ways of thinking about life and how it has meaning.  Fr. Matt was very quiet and well trained by the Jesuits.  Most questions were answered by a question.  He did turn some scriptures that I had always heard preached one way around.  One of the best ways to discern if something is of God was to ask:  If this gives life or love to others does it also give life or love to me?  In order for us to grow, progress in our spiritual journey the process should be a loop of giving and receiving.  “God’s love for me is at least as much as the person who loves me most.”

Grateful for:

  1. Holy week
  2. Love of Christ
  3. Fr. Matt Linn
  4. “Sleeping With Bread”
  5. my own bed
  6. days spent in retreat
  7. work covered

My grand-daughter’s birth-date has been changed to the 26th, so all the plans and schedules that had been arranged now need to be re-arranged.
