For those of you who follow me regularly, you may have wondered where I was. I took a break from the Internet during my silent retreat. I had a very powerful and healing time in the stillness. I brought my camera with me and took this photo one day as I sat looking at the purple tulips that were on the table. Another day I sat in front of a stained glass piece of the crucified Christ, contemplating and when I opened my eyes I saw a fox, scampering across the snow-covered golf course next door. The words I hear were from The Little Prince: What is essential to the heart is invisible to the eye.
I feel blessed from the time spent in prayer and praise. I discovered a few gems that were invisible to the eye but accessible to the heart. I entered deeply into the solitude with a marvelous group of people. It was a Catholic boot camp of sorts but I am so glad I decided to go, knowing that the inner work would be hard.
When was the last time you did something selfish for yourself but knew it would benefit everyone around you?
