Exploring Your Spiritual Journey Retreat and Class

Saturday, September 07, 2013

It was suggested that I take this school-year-long class by a person in my church. It sounded interesting, it isn't costing anything, and I thought, "Why not?" It started out yesterday afternoon with a retreat that started at 5 pm and ended at 3 pm today. The drive to get there was 2 hours. My daughter had suggested that I get audio books on long rides and I stopped at the library and got a Janet Evanovich book.

The retreat was interesting and busy. The place was beautiful. We walked a labrynth today - the first time I ever did so. It was calming.

The class is actually going to be a little more involved than I had originally thought. The classes are 3 hours long and will be held at a place 1.5 hours away. There are books to read, papers to write, people to interview, and a journal to keep. But I will definitely know where I am spiritually by the time I am done. It's time I do this.

I am definitely tired tonight. I've still got some chores to do before I call it a night. I realized that I did it again - I've got something else to fit into my schedule. But I think this may actually help my schedule. I don't think I will veer too far off my plans for the days. I won't have the luxury.

    Wow... someone else (my kindred spirit) who makes herself so busy, that you gotta be organized in order to get it all done....

    Did you ever hear the saying, "if you want something done, ask a busy person".

    My Korean lady is reading her dh's favorite book, The Spirit Driven Life.... this may be going in a different direction altogether, eh? emoticon

    I would love to go on a retreat. I was also going to check out Senior classes at the university, but didn't get around to it..

    Spiritual goals are so important, I believe, and I always tell people who say they don't believe in going to church that it has to do with our inner selves, inner growth. Of course, if you have a church with friends, the experience can be very rewarding. God bless you in your journey.
