It’s funny how we can’t even hear the continual noise that our life produces until we step away from it for awhile. This past week I had the pleasure of retreating. I knew I was due a rest. I could feel it in my body, but I had no idea how back I needed to retreat.
After 24 hours of no demands, appointments, calls, computer, or due dates my body began to appreciate the retreat. It took those first 24 hours to detox myself from the busy, crazy, chaotic schedule my life had cerated. I began to feel the peace fill my inner-life after 48 hours away. At 72 hours I was content to rest, escape, pull back, and enjoy the quiet.
I am thankful for the renewed peace.
I am thankful for my friend who let me retreat to her property for rest.
