I am heading off later today on a week-long silent retreat at St Michael's Convent in Ham. I have to confess to being a little nervous. The silence bit is quite scary; as is being away from my family and home for a whole week. However, I am also very excited. A week of peace, quiet, no house-work, e-mails or laundry! And, of far greater importance, an opportunity to meet with God and to soak in his presence.
Do keep dropping by though, I've left some pretty posts for every day next week.
