Retreat: a quiet or secluded place in which one can rest and relax. A period of seclusion for the purposes of prayer and meditation.
Last weekend I attended a retreat in beautiful western New Jersey. I am so thankful for the time to rest and recharge.
We need silence to be alone with God, to speak to him, to listen to him, to ponder his words deep in our hearts. We need to be alone with God in silence to be renewed and transformed. Silence gives us a new outlook on life. In it we are filled with the energy of God himself that makes us do all things with joy.
~ Mother Teresa
